It’s been pretty quiet here on jkOnTheRun the past few days due to a whirlwind schedule of traveling and meetings for both Kevin and I. We left Vegas after 6 days of CES coverage on Monday of this week and on Wednesday we both headed out to San Francisco for a meeting with the GigaOM team.
I love San Francisco and always enjoy visiting but this trip is a very fast-paced short one with a full schedule. We had an all day meeting at the GigaOM headquarters yesterday that saw us leave the hotel at 7:30 am and not returning until 10:30 last night.
Both Kevin and I brought our MacBooks which we used to give two presentations to the group. The MacBook worked well for giving the presentations since we had access to that special VGA adapter to hook it up to the projector. Shame on you Apple for not providing that adapter for free.
We created the presentations in Google Docs in keeping with our cloud working philosophy and that worked well to preclude the need to give handouts to attendees. We just gave them the links to the two presentations in Google Docs and were done with that.
Kevin also brought his MSI Wind and it was nice to see how well Windows 7 runs on the Wind. I had forgotten how small and compact the Wind is and am impressed anew as I am every time I see it. On a similar note Windows 7 is running well under Parallels on my MacBook too.
Today will find me working in SF as I head back to Houston tomorrow. It will be so nice to get some down time at home. I will post an abbreviated Mobile Tech Manor column later today. You probably noticed there was not one published last week since I was at the CES all week and not even at MTM but I’ll try to get one done for the past week soon.
