Up before 5 am, I was out of the door about 5:40 am heading to Cisco Executive Briefing Center in San Jose. I have done this as a day trip a number of times over the last fifteen years. It is more than a little bit of a crapshoot to figure out how long it is going to take to get there. With the traffic fairly light on a Friday morning, it took just a little over 2 hours and 20 minutes door to door [80 to 680 to 880 to Tasman].
I spent the loin's share of the day in a briefing focused primarily on video conferencing. We have to make some decisions about video conferencing equipment for the new building in Roseville. The agenda included: Future of Work Environments and Telepresence; Current State of Healthcare and Patient Treatment; Demo: Collaboration Solutions and Extended Care Telehealth.
Heading home fairly early, (just after 2 pm), the traffic on a Friday afternoon was a mess. It took more than 3 1/2 hours to wind my way home [680 to 580 to 205 to 120 to 99 to 50].
