On the last day of the World Economic Forum gathering in Davos, all participants put on their gowns and go to a multi-cultural gala event. In years past, the techie geeks and press covering them were excluded from the event, so a few decades back they started a seperate dinner called the Geek's Dinner. the place is a small restaurant, which will remain un-named, as in recent years the place is packed on that invitation only evening. The event is a real geek fest (and it takes one to appreciate a good geek fest). You cna find yourself sitting next to Sir Branson (Mr Virgin himself), Peter Gabriel or my friends Geoff Moore (who got me in) and Chris Anderson (who we missed this year).
Every evening (hosted by uber-geek Joe Schoendorf of Accel Partners and a board member of the Forum) evolved diferently, but this year we somehow got into engineering challenges, and I brought out my best party trick. It just so happens that this trick can get you a lot of free drinks in any bar, with the exception of a bar where the drinks are free already...and everyone is well into 170+ IQ score. every evening (hosted by uber-geek Joe Schoendorf of Accel Partners and a board member of the Forum).
Since we all sat next to Tony "AlwaysOn" Perkins the cameras started rolling. Sergey disqualified himself by showing how he can solve the puzzle in less than 1 second (he must have parallel processed it...or simply embedded google into his brain), but the rest of the fire power on our table solved in sub-minute.
