A friend just sent me a couple of photos of the Ricochet meetup down in Austin last week. Even for Texans, this was just an unusually warm, friendly, and welcoming group of folks. Want proof? Just look at the second picture. There I am, trying to do the A&M "gig 'em" gesture but instead producing the sign for the U.T. longhorns.
And everyone is smiling even so.
*The last note for now, that is. I'll be headed right back to Texas this coming weekend to interview the forty-third chief executive. (Alas, this time the schedule's too tight to permit another meetup.)
