The World is Flat and Small: Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz

A few years back a member of my temple said that he once been on a plane and had spoken with the man sitting next to him.

The man said that his name was Howard Schultz, that he was from Seattle, and that he was the CEO of a company called Starbucks.

    A few years back, I was sitting on the shuttle returning from Washington, DC to NY. I used my Palm device to look up something, and the fellow in the next seat said he’d just gotten one and could I show him a bit about how it worked. Turned out he was a producer for 60 Minutes, and he had not long before interviewed Osama Bin Laden. He went on to say he was working on a book, which became the movie “Charlie Wilson’s War”. Even though he has died since then, I still have his contact info in my Palm – I had showed him how to set up and beam his electronic “business card” to me.

    So all my friends are at distance 3 from OBL.
