Highlights of December 2016
See what we were reading in December 2016
The first week in December, Jon had the honor of hosting and moderating a Q+A session with one of his favorite writers - NY Times Columnist and author Thomas Friedman. Tom was on a book tour for his latest book, Thank You For Being Late, and came to the Autodesk Gallery as part of his book tour.
The second week of December, Jon went to New York City to
visit Morgan Stanley with the current tranche of
Department of Defense Fellows. He accompanied
Zach, the DOD Fellow currently assigned to Jon's team. We visited Morgan
Stanley, Aircraft Carrier Intrepid, the New York Stock Exchange, the tree at
Rockefeller Center, and 9/11 Museum. It was fascinating to be at a financial
services company post financial crisis to see their rationale and how they
responded. Equally fascinating to be there (a few short blocks from Trump Tower)
with a bunch of military folks right after the election.
Here is our annual holiday card...
During the holiday break we went into San Francisco to visit
the SF Museum of Modern Art. We toured the
whole museum. Jon particularly liked this exhibit called Stillness in Motion by
1999-2017 Pittman. All rights reserved.
