What Letslunchers say about Chris(4)
Chris is a cool guy with big passions. We talked a lot about travel, technology and blogging. He's very educated and excited about his work both in and out of the office. I look forward to connecting with him again.
Fantastic lunch - Chris has great personality, broad knowledge in many areas and passion for technology and travel!
Chris is my 17th Let's Lunch, and my favorite so far. (No disrespect to the 16 other really great people I've met here). Where to start... Chris moved here in the '80s to take a job at HP after college. He worked at Apple on the Newton and at a mid-90s startup that pioneered pen-based computing. His perspective on the Valley is invaluable -- he's seen it all. In 2005, he started a travel blog and podcast (www.amateurtraveler.com), and has been pretty much everywhere. Oh, we talked about business, (he's an executive at TripAdvisor) but I really enjoyed talking to him about travel and tech. Download his podcast, check out his past work and expect an awesome conversation.
