Dammit, this is the kind fo thing that makes me miss being in Boston... The
Harvard brand really does pull in some excellent connections. The crack about was at the similar event in 1996. Now, it's even more organized,
parties and all...

LA is many things, but no form of siliconia.


PS. Whatta white male bunch of ceos... though a proimisng number of female
speakers, really. Just the minority participation that drops out as the field
gets more assertive.
