As part of our trip last week to Silicon Valley, the Paddy’s Valley crew paid a visit to Yahoo! Brickhouse, hosted by Salim Ismail who so kindly invited us over to meet some very cool and interesting people. Brickhouse is Yahoo’s incubation facility for innovation and new product ideas. We heard from Chad Dickerson who talked about his aspirations for Hack Day  and also met with Havi Hoffman, who is managing editor of Next Yahoo! blog. So even though this is a massive corporation they made time to hear us pitching our ideas to them and give us some tips on how to deal with Yahoo!’s of this world! Overall a great event and very cool to hear what new innovations are coming out of Yahoo! in the coming weeks. Oh and forgot to mention, while we were there Jerry Yang popped over to say hello and pose for a photo with the PV crew!
