As the Boeing 777 that I am riding approaches Seattle I look once more out my window. Through fast clouds passing by, I contemplate again the awe-inspiring forest beneath us. Then as we are about to land the forest turns to sea. Across the water the city looms in the distance.
This summer, I came back to the US after thirty years of working and living in Japan. The last twenty four years, I have spent building a company, International Systems Research, which was first dedicated to improving the usability of the internet and is now dedicated to developing applications and services to improve cloud security.
As I sit back on my Uber ride from the Seattle Tacoma airport, I see in the distance the skyline of the city of Seattle has grown enormously in the last few years. It is the fastest growing city in America.
