maedas’s impression of berlin

From a recent entry on John Maeda’s Simplicity blog:

My impression of Berlin was that everyone was so darn smart there. On the trip to the airport, my driver instigated a discussion of the metaphysical properties of being and I knew that I was simply outclassed. Fortunately the US Customs official let me back into the States with a simple, “Welcome back.” instead of a Nietzche quote.
