For the first time since I left the Valley in October 2003, I will be returning there on business. It will be interesting to see how much it has/has not changed since we left.

I know that a lot of the people that I knew when I was there have been battered about by the storms of change, and that many of them have returned to where they came from. But, is Silicon Valley still as magic as the first time I arrived in 1999?

Can’t wait.
