I had a meeting recently in downtown PA, at a building I will not name.

At reception, I was understandably asked for ID and where I was going. Fine so far.

Got my pass, went to my meeting, all very commonplace, except?

This office building has a ton of people who are doing highly classified work, with what I observed to be relatively young people. I suspect many of them are Stanford grads, and that is fine. Some youthful break time dealing with bungee balls and then back to work.

I personally am OK with such an organization doing such work in Palo Alto.

And it amazed me that such an organization is in our midst downtown.
