It's always great fun but it's also not unusual that I find myself in a situation like this one:
Managing Director: "Everyone meet our new member Bob. Let's go around the room and introduce ourselves to him. Josh - you start"
Josh: "Ok. Yeah, so I was a Senior Product guy at Linked back in its early days. Then I went to Zazzle and Headed up product development for them. From there I went to Facebook for a few years before landing at Twitter - wow, those were wild and fun times. Currently, I'm a Principal for an awesome VC firm here in the valley."
Managing Director: "Great! Paul, you're up. Tell us who you are."
Me: "Huh? Who am I? Oh. um. I grew up in Ohio, I like pizza, and I'm never sitting next to Josh again. Next."
Of course, the little secret is that I make sure to sit next to people like Josh every time. I figure, surrounding yourself with overachievers can't help but rub off a bit.
