Customer Meetings , Warsaw, Poland (November 26, 2008)
This was my first trip to Poland. I spent Tuesday at the Adobe office in Warsaw, talking to customers, partners, and local Adobe personnel. And that evening, Tadeusz Chelkowski and Piotr Walczyszyn gave me a quick tour of the city. The small remaining fragment of the Warsaw Ghetto wall is somewhat hard to find, in a walkway sandwiched between residential buildings. But seeing it and touching it is an absolute must. There is something surreal about staring at a wall, and knowing that had I been doing so a mere half century ago, well, the wall would have been locking me inside, and I'd not have lived to tell the tale. The experience is disturbing, inspiring, eerie, insightful, and frightening - all at the same time.
