Thanks to work, I spent this week in Cupertino, CA. Having never been anywhere in the USA before, it was somewhat exciting to be staying literally up the road from the Apple Campus.
Me @ 1 Infinite Loop
I was also able to goto Google in Mountain View, to attend the Silicon Valley MySQL Users Group at the Visitors Center. Unfortunately I didn't come accross any large google logos to take my photo with, but I did find building number 42
I also spotted the offices of Symantec, Trend Micro, Packeteer, Solid, Microsoft, Borland and MySQL (Surprise!) along the way. Certainly "exciting" for someone thats never been to the bay area.
I had hoped to make it up to San Francisco, and do a little site-seeing of the Golden Gate Bridge and some other stuff, but was too tired to do it this afternoon, and I am attending BarCampBlock today in Palo Alto from early until I fly out tonight - so unfortunately I am going to miss out this trip. Hopefully work will send me back this way again sometime next year.
