Yesterday I got to meet with Sanjay Kapoor, who worked with me at MP3.com. He moved back to the Bay area because his wife was entering a residency program in Pediatrics at Stanford. Sanjay ended up taking a job at Google. When he offered to have me swing by the office for lunch I couldn't pass it up.
It was quite a scene. The company has moved into the old Silicon Graphics space and it had a lot of the feeling of many other companies in 1999. Chefs, Volleyball courts, and Segway vehicles. The difference is, they make money. The excitement in the air was evident and I must say that it was cool to see that buzz that comes with an impending IPO. Hopefully this bodes well for the entire sector.
