Robert W. Warfield is born in Lubbock, Texas.  
June 3, 1966: I'm 5 years old, and I remember getting up very early with my father to watch the Gemini launch that resulted in the "Angry Alligator". The Agena rocket they were practicing docking with would not release the nose cone shroud. We were living in the house on Shandon at that time, which was my mother's favorite house.

Tuesday, September 11

Terrorists attack the World Trade Center and the Pentagon by crashing hijacked jetliners into them. The stock market, already reeling from a recession, is clubed to the ground.

Friday, September 22

Decided not to pursue founding a startup, but rather to look for a job. The idea being that the economy is likely to be doing well again by 2003, the government is likely to overstimulate, and that therefore I wanted to hit the 2003 "window". This means finding a company doing at least $10M/year so that it can be well positioned by 2003.

Sunday, September 23

Started mailing out contact letters to recruiters, venture capitalists, and executive contacts, to get the word out I'm looking for a position. Got immediate responses on a Sunday from Bruce Dunlevie and Philippe Kahn. There's a reason why these guys got ahead!
