I am off to the sunnier climes of Palo Alto and Mountain View for a few days of meetings, and then onwards to San Fran for more of the same!

Posting will be sporadic, but I have my Casio exilim, and if I see anything particularly fascinating at any of the tech outposts I visit,  I’ll throw a few snaps up . . .


Thanks to everyone who suggested places to visit / things to do in SF — I ended up with lots of great ideas . . .

Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

    One of my computer-tech buddies very recently gave me a copy of “The Cuckoo’s Egg” to read. You might read parts of it in-transit. The book is set in Berkeley around the late 1980s, talks about computer security and the internet, and is supposed to be based on a true story? I am not for sure. I have only had a copy for a couple days and read the first 150 pages or so.

    Make sure you stop by Caffe Trieste and Grant & Vallejo in North Beach.

    Hey Barry,

    If you put out the word, I’ll bet a bunch of us out here could get together for dinner (if you have some time between meetings). Otherwise, sorry it is so cold this week. :-)
