So I finally made it up to Taipei !! Many thanks to our “cover girl” Jenny for taking care of me and enabling the bulk of my Taipei activities !! What a joy to have re-connected with all of you … hopefully I’ll have my whole family with me the next time I come to Taiwan … please come to Switzerland anytime you’d like !!
Tie-in notes here … Furbo is Victor’s brainchild … designed for dog-owners who are as attached to their dogs as their dogs are attached to them !! Jenny and I managed to stop into the office for a wee visit just after lunch with the full(-ish) Ting group … the product is doing very well in the States and hopefully the team will come to Europe soon (hint hint !!) … at least for a little looksie ?!
As for the library … woowwwww … I think everyone knows that I’m an incurable book worm … the New Taipei City Library is incredible !! Jenny allowed me to tag along while she took a work-related tour of the place. I’ve never seen anything like it … modern & futuristic w/ an ample supply of high-tech gadgets but … also full of “real” books (like with paper-based pages, yo) … a beautiful public facility which hopefully will serve its surrounding community in infinite ways for many generations of library patrons … investments like this give me hope for the future !!
