Meeting in the Insane Asylum

History, Oracle

Lots of nostalgia this week … yesterday and today, my meetings have been on the Oracle Santa Clara Campus. It is always enjoyable to come here and remember the many meetings I attended here prior to the Oracle acquisition of Sun Microsystems in 2010 and with Oracle colleagues since then.

It is fun to meet in the grand old buildings on this campus, which were first built as part of the Agnews Development Center, originally known as “The Great Asylum for the Insane.” Commentary on the present occupants? You decide.

This morning, I arrived early at Oracle headquarters and took a stroll around the lake.  It was fun to see the 2010 America’s Cup winning yacht displayed in front of Building 500. Here are a few of the photos I took – of the yacht and descriptive information posted about the yacht and race.
