A resource for folks living in or moving to Los Gatos, by Mary Pope-Handy

When Brains Collide

April 05, 2007

Los Gatos sits between the laid back beach community at Santa Cruz and the faster paced  world of Silicon Valley. For most, Los Gatos is a place to unwind & have fun, and even better, a great place to live.  But it is never all that far from the tech happenings. Many of the town’s residents are engineers or in related industries. We do have some technology related companies in town too, such as the great video game company, Cryptic Studios.   Many ideas raised in SV were born here in The Corner of the Cats. Los Gatos is a part of Silicon Valley, but at times feels like it’s a bit removed.  It’s at the crossroads, with feet in both worlds. What happens in Silicon Valley is definitely felt in Los Gatos

My husband, Jim Handy, is an engineer by training and has been doing market research in the semiconductor industry for years.  Often he’s attending some sort of industry conference locally.  Most of the time, he has to translate for me what the events are all about.  So too, this week he has been in and out of the Imbedded Systems Conference.  I probably gave him a glazed over look when he told me the name of it. I do remember, though, that he heard Al Gore give a presentation and it sounded like one I’d have enjoyed attending, and I know that Jim reconnected with a lot of old colleagues and friends.  He has been impressed with it all around. 

Today Jim shared with me a video clip advertising the Imbedded Systems Conference.  Many of my engineer clients have a playful and wildly creative side  and I thought how typically Silicon Valley this advertisment is. Please take a look at the fun side of high tec and enjoy this video clip, “When Brains Collide”.

You’ve gotta love living in Silicon Valley! These fun minds are the same types you’ll bump into at the Los Gatos Farmers Market on Sunday morning, or on the Los Gatos Creek Trail whizzing by on bikes, or grabbing a latte at one of the town’s zillion coffee shops and typing away on the tablet computer.   You never know what they might really be up to, if brains do collide!
