Sound the Bell ! To launch the Bloggers’ Embark, I dispatched an All Hands bulletin to the bloggers to rendezvous at Charlene Li’s recommendation of the Blue Chalk Café in Palo Alto, California. On May 13, 2009, Navy Commander Romuel ‘Roy’ Nafarrete, Commanding Officer of the Navy Recruiting District San Francisco greeted Beth Blecherman, Charlene Li, Jennifer Jones, Robert Scoble and me for the icebreaker. Other bloggers wished to attend, but either had schedule conflicts or live hundreds or thousands of miles from the Blue Chalk Café.
Navy Commander Nafarrete provided animated descriptions of what to expect during the embarkation. He further dished background information on some of the key contacts whom the bloggers will meet and get acquainted with once aboard the USS Nimitz. He wants so much to be with this eclectic group.
The evening was wonderful!
