We had a good first meeting on Americanism for the Silicon Valley Junto. Nine people in total, diverse backgrounds (though all in business/tech), and interesting perspectives on this knotty issue of what it means to be American. We had a deliciously wide ranging conversation over lunch. I know there were several people who wanted to come but had other previously scheduled committments – all this tells me that Silicon Valley folks see the value in discussing non-business, non-web2.0 topics since it’s both intellectually refreshing and good for biz since insights are made at the intersections of ideas.
