The evening before the BarCampBankSeattle

July 20, 2007

Finally arrived here after a 6 hour journey [Vancouver-Seattle]. The border wait was 2 hours, the I-5 was backed up to Everett so there was the other 4 hours. One begins to feel claustrophobic being surrounded by that many cars for that long.

Got into the hotel room and got a call from Brad Garland & Mark McSpadden from The Garland Group to go for supper at Elliot’s. Great guys. We had some interesting discussions about banking, Web 2.0, and Ruby on Rails. If this is any indication of what is in store for the next 2 days there is going to be some significant discussions around banking and technology. Great minds think alike…

    Hi Gene, great seeing you! Agreed, the drive down was horrendous. My guess is my drive back at 6pm on a Sunday will be much, much better (unless they’re closing I-5 tonight for maintenance).

    Thanks for the kind words and the great discussion. Brad and I are still blown away by your Mac-only operation and the innovation with which you lead your CU. I hope that dinner (and weekend) are just the first of many to come!
