Why Oh Why Did Apple Abandon Cat Names For OS X?

Go Apple: Half Moon Bay surfing spots beat cats anytime. ;-0

Not to mention that Apple exec Phil Schiller lives in Half Moon Bay. Mavericks is famous big-wave surf spot here. I'm sure he had something to do with that.

Half Moon Bay is becoming quite a backwater tech town. Rackspace's Cloud app was written in the Peet's here by Michael Mayo. Several Google execs and geeks live here. Lots of tech companies have offsites here.

Next week Bloomberg West will have its first futuristic tech conference at the Ritz by my house.

The Google Glass video that was shown at last year's IO was filmed at the Ritz Pool here.

GoPro was started here. Steve Jurvetson, who funded Hotmail and many other crazy startups, owns a home here.

Soon we'll do some events here. I hear Halley Suitt Tucker's book is coming out, so we might throw a party in August.

If you come by Half Moon Bay, let us know. Friday afternoons we're often at the Ritz with a bunch of interesting technologists having fun talking about the future. Increasingly it'll show up, too. A next door neighbor, for instance, helps run the Google Chrome team and he brought a Pixel Chromebook out before anyone had seen them.
