Like so many other NBA team owners, Kings boss Vivek Ranadive has a life outside of basketball. He's the CEO of TIBCO, a software company that is a leader in real-time data processing. (One of his software inventions revolutionized Wall Street decades ago.) Global Illuminati like to hang out together, and Davos is their Summer League. As such, Vivek is at Davos.
And he's documenting the trip on Twitter. And it's pretty surreal.

At lunch with Bibi - fellow MIT alum - very technical - said - if people can't keep their secrets secret - what good is life - ha— Vivek Ranadivé (@Vivek) January 23, 2014
Let's diagram this one. Vivek had lunch with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, relayed one of Bibi's philosophical thoughts on surveillance and ended with a "ha." There are not enough W, T or F keys on my keyboard to express my feelings on this.

British PM David Cameron is Vivek's favorite European leader? I had Francois Hollande in the pool.
The only thing better than Vivek in Davos is imagining the Maloofs in Davos. Or talking about Davos. "Davos? Is that the new club at the Wynn?"
