Google Tech Talk

A Report from Sadasivanathaswami in California:

Senthilnathaswami and I drove to Mountain View on Wednesday to accept Rolf Schreiber's long-standing invitation to give a Google Tech Talk at their headquarters. Senthilnathaswami had prepared a delightful survey of the monastery's tech and sustainability initiatives, complete with historic photos. Twenty-two attended, including our members, for the hour-long talk and Q&A. Swami and I toggled the narration as we went through the early history of our publishing and typography, the Apple video on our first-ever publishing network, our Macintosh evolution (Gurudeva seated at his early Macs), lumber milling of Kauai trees, Himalayan Acres agricultural work, our veggie garden, iPhones and get the idea.

Then a not-planned afternoon visit to ARC in nearby Fremont. ARC is one of America's leading document management companies and its President and CEO, K. Suriyakumar, also a long-time admirer of the monastery's work, had made a generous offer when we visited his home, inviting the monastery to consider using his company's industrial-strength software, especially one called IShipDocs. Software that pushes Gurudeva's mission forward? Free? We accepted and were given a tutorial by their experts. It's a potent tool and when we return to Kauai we will begin implementing it. Such a great gift to make our work, well, work.

Today we fly off to Toronto for the HMEC conference.
