Goldman Sachs kicks off its Communications Technology Retreat in Santa Barbara, Calif., today, with JDS Uniphase (JDSU) , Qwest (Q) and Time Warner (TWX) among the presenters.

Actually, the conference kicked off yesterday with golf and a reception. And on today's schedule, there's a 15-minute break called "California Dreamin': Smoothies on the North Patio." You'd think it would take more than 15 minutes to have a whole California dream, but there you go.
