Selfie with Atrium CEO and internet cornerstone Justin Kan
It’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.
