Tt's taken three years living here, but Silicon Valley is starting to reveal to me how connected it is. Take today for example: I get an email from Tirto Adji (an investor in Paubox) recommending I attend a networking event this evening in San Francisco. The event RSVP system was powered by Splash, whose CEO Ben Hindman I had seen nearly jump out of his shoes at SaaStr last month at SaaStr Annual.
I skimmed the details, clicked the RSVP link, added it to my HIPAA compliant calendar, and got back to work. Upon arriving, I still had no idea what exactly Atrium was up to or who founded it. Thankfully one of their newer software engineers, Avi Moondra, struck up a convo with me and things fell into place. Turns out Atrium was founded by none other than Justin Kan, whom I had also blogged about at last month's SaaStr conference.

When I spoke to Justin a few minutes later, I confirmed we have a mutual Hawaii friend in common, Doug Shimokawa. Along with Michael Seibel of Y Combinator, they went to Yale together as undergrads. Man, small world. Enjoy the pics and video from tonight's event. Congrats to Atrium on their 100+ clients in under six months!
