PermaLinkRiding The Elevator With Ambuj Goyal
11:25:41 PM

Returning from dinner with my friend Bruce this evening, and walking across the rotunda lobby of the Dolphin, I noticed that Ambuj Goyal was walking toward the central bank of elevators. As it happens, the Dolphin assigned me a room in the central section this year, on the 18th floor, so with no ulterior motive whatsoever, I followed Ambuj into the elevator. We have met briefly once before, so I said "hello", and he did likewise. We reintroduced ourselves and had a brief conversation, mentioning Penumbra and the CULT shirts, and as Bruce was wearing a shirt with the logo of a prior employer that happens to be a customer that IBM knows fairly well he also chatted briefly with Ambuj. Then the elevators opened on the 20th floor, and as Ambuj exited it suddenly dawned on me that we forgot to push the button for our floor! 20 is the top floor of the Dolphin.

I've shared elevators with some very well-known people on a few occasions: Patrick Buchanan, and John Phillips to name two. (No! Not at the same time! Could any two people possibly be more different, and more unlikely to share an elevator?) Never missed my floor before, though.

Followed that episode up with brief get-together with Andrew, Bill, and Roy in the lobby bar.

Years ago, during my first consulting gig, at MTV Networks, I shared an elevator with Cindy Crawford. Needless to say, for an 18 year-old male, I'd have to say that surpasses Pat Buchanan. :)
