At dinner conversation ranged from the JVM to Oculus Rift to OpenGL. I had a headache afterward as a result of too little coffee plus the 3:30am wake up to catch a plane to San Jose.
Back at the hotel I said goodnight to Portland via Facetime and decided to go for a big walk to stretch my legs, pick up some water and get some fresh air. I was walking past Palantir HQ behind 3 visitors from out of town as they remarked how nice the restaurant across the street looked… so modern and open. I passed them as they started to walk over to the “restaurant” which was in fact the Palantir cafeteria.
The alternate universe of techno-utopia. My headache was gone when I got back.
