2:14 am: Going to bed. Have been working late on Gettaround, the car sharing service that a team of Singularity University students are starting. We’ve been at iPhone developer camp all weekend making an iPhone app that allows people to share, locate, and start cars (plus some other neat features). I also snuck into Group A’s workshop on Artificial Intelligence yesterday, so I’ve been burning the candle at both ends.

8:00 am: Wake up. Caffeine . . . need . . . caffeine.

8:45 am: Meet Charles, another team member and our Product Developer, in the lobby of the NASA lodge for a ride to Yahoo headquarters. How is he so alert this early in the morning??!?
