I'm still hanging out in San Francisco. Today has been one of those mixed days of meetings, and quietly getting work done (well sort of). You can see from this live Web cam (which is close to the office) that it has been pretty much overcast and wet here.
On my way to the office this morning I past our old office location, which is now a Mexican embassy, and there was a line up about 200 metres long of people trying to get in. I think they were looking for information about relatives in Mexico after the big quake there. There are a lot of Mexicans living and working in the Bay area so the earth quake has been a big story here.
Tonight I'll meet a friend from Sheridan College who lives here in San Francisco. Then tomorrow I probably won't do too much because everyone I would need to meet will be in another meeting or will have left town. I do have a breakfast meeting set up, but I think the work side of the conversation will just be wrapping up what we did this week, and asking how the coffee is. Sometimes it can be hard work in different office because no one knows who you are and you don't know where anything is. For now, I'll enjoy it. There was talk of meeting again in three weeks, which would mean another trip to San Fran but then Toronto was picked as the location because it was easier for everyone to get there. That is fine by me. One trip to California a year is fun, but two trips in three weeks would be a real pain in the ass.
I took some pictures around the office and I'll try to post them as soon as I get them developed. Hopefully faster than the Europe trip photos. I promise.
