Ha-ha!  You too then!  Yeah - I just assumed he was a Silicon Valley
guy and didn't look him up until after the meeting!  Now I look back
on it with a feeling of wonder that we stumbled into the meeting that
way.  One of the things I remember about the meeting is your telling
him that for the local (Japanese) market, the Japanese needed to just
work - and it was shortly after that that it did.  (I wonder if
there's a mathematical formula for "Low expectations & high results
and high expectations and low results"?)  I also remember thinking at
the time that you and he seemed to be on the same wavelength.
