Day 1

I made it into Columbus about 7pm last night. My trip was delayed thanks to a nasty eye infection (I'll refrain from posting a pic). The good news is I got an opportunity to try out the new VZNavigator service on my vx9800. This thing is amazing and might even help me overlook the fact that Verizon cripples bluetooth on it's phones. Anyway, most of the employees were already at the boss' house when I arrived. I loaded up on a few glasses of delightful Two Tone Merlot and sat down to a bitchen shish-q-bob dinner. Most of the conversation wasn't work related. Everyone was just trying to get to know each other.

The next morning @ 9 we met at the office to start an all day product meeting. The product folk have definitely been busy and even had flow diagrams prepared. I have to say I really dig their approach... very team focused with a strong bias for trust; refreshing.
