Ex-Be Lunch

For a few years now there’s been a regular weekly gathering of Ex-Be folk around the bay area at Clarkes in Mountain View. Until now I’ve never really been able to make it since the drive from Petaluma to Mountain View is around 90 minutes each way (at best). This week however I’m working at Digidesign in Daly City and the 30 minute drive was more reasonable.

it was good to catch up with Dianne, George, JBQ, Marco and others (who joined after I left Be in 2000). A few of these people still form part of the software development team at Palm Source, however many of those who moved with the aquisition have also now moved on. There’s quite a gathering of exBe folk at Google right now (about 6-8 I think) including groups who left Be for Danger but are now at Google (Brian & Ficus to name two) and those who went from Palm to Google (Dianne and others).

With a bit of luck I’ll be able to make the lunch the next time I’m back in the Bay Area at the end of April.
