We just had a wee (4.1) earthquake in Mountain View. It felt like a big truck was driving by, but instead of just the floor rumbling, the ceiling and the doorways did too. The best part is that I was in a meeting, videoconferencing with a coworker in Paris and two others in another building in Mountain View. Ms. Paris was talking, and then all of a sudden the three of us started yelling. And bouncing around on the screen a bit, too. We scared the bejesus out of her.

On the plus side, I managed to restrain the urge to dive under the table. Score one for dignity.
