Living on the Hell Mouth

I’m currently based in Sunnyvale, CA, USA. Yes I know it was Sunnydale in Buffy but it was poorly disguised 🙂 I’m keeping a watch out for demons and vampires. So far so good.

I’m actually working on site at a client who is based in San Jose just a few miles further south where I’m helping integrate software on an embedded Linux platform. Its the third time I’ve been out here and probably not the last. Its an easy commute from my accommodation, just a quick blast down the 101 Freeway.

As a geek, one of the things I love about the valley, is that everywhere I drive there are companies and institutions that mean something to me and place names that are so familiar. Yahoo, Apple, Google, SGI, Macrovision, Intel, HP, PayPal, NASA’s Ames Research Facility, Stamford, Berkeley, Mountain View, Palo Alto, Cupertino, Santa Clara, Los Altos, and so on. The list is endless. If I was a bit younger and a bit more single I’d probably look to work out here.
