Vint Cerf at Google

I went to Google's offices last night to see Vint Cerf, one of the fathers of the internet, speak.

He spoke for about an hour on the state of the internet, and how he saw future developments. Even though he claimed not to be dumbing down as this was an audience of invited geeks, I found I understood all the issues he brought up - must mean I'm as geeky as I expected I was :-) He was very good, and answered every question in detail in the Q&A session afterwards. Google were very gracious hosts, providing refreshments and an excellent facility. It was a fantastic evening and I even went away with a Google goodie bag.

Today however, I'm wondering why I spend my time doing boring, repetitive and unchallenging work, when there are so many much more interesting things I could be thinking about 10 hours day.
