After the conference, Eric and I went with State Sen. Jeanne Kohl-Welles and her husband Alex Welles on a tour of the Obama Headquarters.  To say we were excited and impressed is a complete understatement.  It reminded Eric and I of the early days at Microsoft when we were shipping products.  At 7pm on a Saturday night, there were a sizable number of people still there working hard (comparable to being in launch mode – only this time, they’re launching the future of the free world – OY!).  A highlight was that we got to meet David Axelrod and chat with him for a couple of minutes.  What a real, down to earth, bear of a man! 

We also met folks in the ethnic group areas as well as folks doing new media (including the man who did the iphone app).

Mike French led us on the tour – the person with whom I worked very closely throughout the caucuses to get turnout.

    Suzi- Now if that piece of art doesn’t say it all about the difference between most replicand and democrats, I dunno what does! I visited the HQ on line by watching a video a few weeks agao and I was so impressed byt the openness of the the space and how everyone seems like equals. If the Obama HQ bodes to how well a government can be run… we’re in for a treat!
    I loved your photos- thank you!
