My Mountain View Conference Room

The first photo is my Mountain View Conference room. It doesn't video conferencing cababilities but cell phone reception is good. Give me a call sometime however I'm not in often.
The third photo shows that the ceiling is a bit low - I'm going to have that changed.
The second photo is not the top of the mountain. I think I will need to get wake up earlier in the morning to get there about 4am.

Yeah, and if he did, with that view he probably could have seen the office in Sunnyvale where I used to w*rk when I lived out that way.

Very nice. I know some vendors who could probably sell you some video conferencing stuff if you want.

You would have to pay me a heck of a lot to live in Sunnyvale, Mountain View, Cupertino, etc...
