Ich bin ein Berliner

It’s a famous John F. Kennedy quote, from his West Berlin speech in 1963.

All free men, wherever they may live, are citizens of Berlin. And therefore as a free man, I take pride in the words: “Ich bin ein Berliner”


I am in Berlin this week, after taking a direct flight from San Francisco to Frankfurt, and then a quick hop over to Berlin. I’ll be at eBay Germany all this week, meeting with our German team responsible for eBay Express.

What they don’t know yet is that I have also brought them See’s chocolate truffles from home.


So far, AT&T has totally failed me, as my cell phone isn’t picking up service. However, Skype is awesome, and I’m set up with Skype-Out and Skype-In, including voicemail. Makes me wonder why I have a normal landline at home, really…

The MacBook Pro also seems quite happy here. In fact, a lot of the furniture in my hotel room looks like it was designed with the MacBook in mind.
