  • So I am to join a dinner where all of the new Berlin based employees in the past two months are gathering to meet one another. My meeting at work runs over and I run into the restaurant late and flustered. The hostess escorts me to the Nokia table where fortunately there's one seat left. I settle in, order a beer and introduce myself to everyone. As the introductions are going around the table, I notice a pattern. They all work on the same project. Oh no. Oh My. Wrong group of people. (But they were all very nice about my crashing their gathering!)
