I've had the opportunity over recent years to go to the last few annual shareholder meetings for both Microsoft and Starbucks headquartered here in Seattle.

The MSFT people can learn a lot from SBUX on how to have a far less "stuffy" meeting.

I enjoy going to both, especially in rubbing shoulders with company management. However Starbucks' meetings are much better presentations and really seem to be geared more toward those in attendance rather than fulfilling corporate/legal responsibilities.

I think it unfortuante that more folks don't attend these meetings especially when they're in your own back yard.

I'm looking forward to reporting on their future meetings.

Best regards,
