Camera Obscura


Posted by wendy | Posted in work | Posted on 12-09-2007

In my 3rd start up (really 2nd start up since I was only in my 1 start up for 3 month, but that’s another story for another time.), we had an conference room name Camera Obscura. For some reason, I always thought it was a super cool name and it rhymes!

Well, this post has nothing to do with Camera Obscura. So if you want to learn more about it, you can find it here. But you won’t learn it here.

I don’t really think about that particular start up anymore, for one thing, it no longer exist. (No, it didn’t go bust, it was acquired.) I do talk to my ex-boss and coworkers every now and then, to get some company gossip.

So today, I wore that particular company’s jacket today. Usually, no one ever comments on it. When I tell people I worked for that company, people would say what’s that? What do they do? Never heard of them, etc. And I would have to go into my story about how the company invented camera phones, etc.

So imagine my delight (surprise) when someone at Ning actually knew what that company did. It’s kind of funny, her ex company was working on a deal with my ex company. The deal didn’t go through, but she remain in contact with some of the people.

So random.
