while she was technically registered as a lobbyist for a short time, she's since been reclassified. and works for a nonprofit. and is the lobbyists boss.

key point: environmental organization working on food issues.

so while she does get to hobknob with some food famous people, she does not, in fact, smear dirty money on our bed to sleep.

absolutely. the valley that is silicon is none other than Santa Clara Valley.

my high school job was pharmacy delivery guy and I drove through all the areas where the tech sector grew up. In a sense, I watched it hatch in real time. This was around 1991 and on.

Point of speculation:

Joe is giving away all of his garage posessions.

Santa Clara has garages!

What the eff?

I for one welcome Joe's move from Silicone Valley to Silly Con Valley.

We can talk about electronics, turbos, monetary systems, and conspiracies over beer!

You guys have it all wrong. Joe is getting a big check to jump ship so he is selling all his old crap and getting ready to buy all new top-of-the-line equipment (or going minimalist chic and paying someone else to get their hands dirty).

Plus, he needs space to park the Porsche.

It has become abundantly clear why Joe has parted with all his human possessions:

First Apple Computer Sells at Auction for $387,750




(AP) First Apple computer sells at auction for $387,750
NEW YORK
An original Apple computer from 1976 has sold at auction for nearly $388,000.

Known as the Apple 1, it was one of the first Apple computers ever built.

It sold Monday for $387,750 at a Christie's online-only auction. Bolaffi, an Italian collections company, says in a statement that it bought the computer. The seller was a retired school psychologist from Sacramento, Calif.

Vintage Apple products have become a hot item since Steve Jobs' death in October 2011. Jobs joined forces with Steve Wozniak to build computer prototypes in a California garage, and Wozniak built the Apple 1.

Another Apple 1 was sold in May for a record $671,400 by a German auction house. It broke a record of $640,000 set in November.

Bumping this for legitimate claims.

I think Joe is going to be an 18 wheel truck driver after his NYC ventures.

But on the other hand, you've very nearly described my dream job otherwise. Granted, I usually travel by air rather than by ground, but the whole "away from home for weeks on end" thing doesn't bother me in the least- I do it all the time, and in fact I get antsy when I'm in one place too long.
