My trip to California overlapped with the start of Palm's big 10th Anniversary bash, so I got to join in with the festivities before heading to the airport. They had three food lines, lots of beverages, a live band, carnival games, fortune tellers, inflated contents (bull riding, running with bungees), giveaways, and a silent auction to benefit a local charity. I was able to get a couple of bright orange tumblers for my kitchen, one of their anniversary T-shirts, and a grip pad for my car out of the event, along with plenty of heirloom tomato salad, dill-spiced potatoes, and veggie kabobs. I saw Jeff Hawkings in the crowd early on, wearing a "pilot"-logo polo shirt, and saw another guy with a "Palm Computing" golf shirt with the very first company logo (featuring a palm tree) on it.
After a year and a half, I'm still excited to be working for this company, and they still seem to like me. Of course, having about the best possible job in the world for my particular set of interests helps a lot too :) Here's to ten more years!
