A few other notes from the first few hours at the Ritz Carlton in Half Moon Bay, CA:
- You can go home again: Just ran into Erick Schonfeld of TechCrunch in the lobby. Schonfeld was chatting it up with some of his former colleagues from Time Inc. He previously worked with the now defunct Business 2.0, which was under the Time Inc. umbrella.
- Sometimes you can’t leave home: Sir Martin Sorrell, CEO of WPP, didn’t make the trip to Brainstorm: TECH after all. He was a last minute drop from the Thinking Globally panel. Kirkpatrick made a slight joke (not really) that he was home in the U.K. closing another major acquisition. The truth is, he is. Word is that WPP will win the bid for Taylor Nelson Sofres.
