So not only did I get a job offer last Thursday while in San Francisco, but later that very day I ventured out into a quieter, more residential part of the city to check out Brown Owl Coffee, the shop mentioned a number of times by Merlin Mann on Back to Work. Val and I ran in to Merlin himself as soon as we got off the light rail, and he was super friendly. Highlight of the day for my wife and I (she also listens to Back to Work). Anyway, Val got a picture of Merlin and I, and he tweeted the link. Gruber retweeted Merlin, and now it’s suddenly on track to be the most viewed picture on my photo stream in the near future (though it still has a long way to catch up to this one).
And Merlin is a good hugger, FYI.
