Westward Ho

On Friday I will wing west by aeroplane, joining Steven, Daniel, Stephen and Dan (all being members of my landlord Borg collective), as well as Johnny and Jodi, in San Francisco for a 4 days of high-level corporate discussions and strategic planning exercises.

I’ll also get a chance to see Oliver and Sophie, and to tour the Scharffen Berger Chocolate plant in Berkeley.

Although others have asked the same question, it bears repeating: if there’s something in San Francsico you think I should see, let me know!

Go watch the soon-to-be-outlawed en-masse gay marriages happening at the newly gilded and splendiferous City Hall. Walk across the GG Bridge. The symphony and opera are top notch and take place in very nice venues. A book reading at City Lights or somewhere else. Check out http://sfgate.com/eguide/ and see what’s going on. There’s SFMOMA sometimes has good stuff (I don’t recall being wowed by the permanent collection). A bunch of good theatre company’s play in some nice playhouses around Union Square. Sfgate has reviews.

A thrilling trip to the nearby San Andreas faultline would be on the top of my agenda. Apparently if you stay long enough you’ll actually be able to watch it subduct a few nanometres. Watch out for runaway streetcars too…

I would try to get to the TechTV studios for a live taping of The Screen Savers.
