Yeah, so I just met Al Gore. For reasons that remain a bit unclear to me, he visited the company I am consulting at. I said “hi”, I shook his hand, I laughed, I cried, I mourned the fact that he lost the election despite my all-powerful vote. He was a bit more rotund than we’re used to, sporting a beard, and he seemed really, really, really relaxed. He gave a funny and inspiring little speech to the 50 or so of us who were here, and he left me with thoughts vaguely of freedom.
I can think of worse ways to break up an otherwise normal Thursday.
