… Dr. Larry Brilliant, for whom I worked in the early part of this decade when he was at the helm of a new media company called SoftNet.
Larry went on to work for Google as their chief philanthropic evangelist. He got to give away money. One billion dollars. What a job, huh?
No, I was not a recipient.
Larry is going to continue on in a philanthropic role, but for a different organization – which he describes here.
Reading about Larry has knocked me into a funk of introspection. I miss the days in San Francisco working at SoftNet. We had a ping pong table and free Peet’s Coffee. I had enough stock options to be a millionaire.
Gadzooks! Was that even really in this same life?
