University Ave, Palo Alto

I'm in the bay area for Thanksgiving right now. Today I was in Palo Alto for some meetings with venture capitalists (VCs). The density of funds near University Ave in Palo Alto is only exceeded on Sand Hill Road near the Stanford Accelerator Center (SLAC). You can't have dinner (I wanted Coppola-Niebaum but we ended up having tandoori) or go into Starbucks without overhearing deals discussed by 40ish guys wearing khaki pants, or the interview of a potential VP of sales by a CEO. Activity is still nowhere near peak bubble levels of 2000, but things have been steadily improving since the crash :-)
