San Jose, California, August 1997. Cool, crisp, and beautiful weather. I had just completed my last class at UT, a chemistry course. I had walked with my friends in May, and so I was anxiously awaiting my final grade to see if I'd successfully graduated from college - second go around.
My sister, Linda, was Intel tour director for the Smithsonian Institution's 150th Anniversary tour. Intel was one of the major sponsors of the cross-country tour. She helped me get hired on as assistant tour director for the San Jose leg of the tour. What a whirlwind event! I think the record crowd we had was 14,000 people in one day passed through the exhibit halls, and many of those attendees made it through our 200 person theatre.
