Met friends from AOL today for breakfast

January 18, 2006

A few days ago some Plaxo people were over at the AOL/Netscape offices in Mountain View and ran into Justin, the author of Tales of a Running Man. I’ve been a subscriber of his blog for a while and since he was in town, I invited him to breakfast this morning at Hobee’s in Cupertino. The food was good as usual and so was the company.

Justin and Greg are both pretty senior guys on the AIM team and their depth of knowledge on the industry in general made for really great conversation. I assume we’ll probably be running into each other more often in the coming months πŸ™‚

    Did you ask them the $1 million dollar question:
    “When will you guys actually play nice and support open standards instead of clinging to the same failed walled-garden approach”? πŸ˜‰

    I just moved to the Silicon Valley a couple of weeks ago to work with one of your former employers. Lol.

    Anyways, just wanted to drop by and say that I love reading your blog and have been doing so for months.

    I just downloaded the new AIM with Plaxo. Nice Nice Nice. Now others need to follow suit πŸ˜‰

    Hi Will, thanks for the compliments!

    Which former employer of mine are you at? IBM, Microsoft or Google?

  4. Will Says:

    That would be Google… your most former employer.

    Seriously… Plaxo is an amazing concept. I really dig it. Now people need to get on the bandwagon…
