The next day, after a long-awaited visit to the Computer History Museum and a stroll around the Googleplex, I headed from Mountain View back to Cupertino. Walking down the avenue between the bus stop on the highway and the main entrance to the campus, I grabbed the badge out of my backpack and clipped it onto my jeans. Walking straight past all the tourists taking photos, I smiled at the receptionist, tapped the badge on a reader next to the door and sauntered right in. I felt cool and at home.
I’ve been walking around in a daze since I heard the sad, sad news about David Dreger this afternoon. I just wanted to jot down a few memories/stories and hint at the impact he’s had on me, not just eulogise.
This was a lot of fun. I didn't make this video (that was Evil Patrick Shannon), but I am in it!
