"For a cautionary tale, everyone cites Paul Bradley Carr." - THE SUNDAY TIMES

Content: know your place

Great first proper day in San Francisco. Eris has assumed the role of personal tour guide which is great as it helps me avoid the tourist traps.

Her first suggestion was that we visit the city’s biggest tourist trap: Pier 39. Her ‘logic’ being that it would help me know which area to avoid in future, thus keeping me safe for the rest of the trip. It’s a little like killing someone to ensure that no one can hurt them again.

Anyway – we’re off for dinner now so I’ll simply point you towards photos from today on Flickr. The photo above, by the way, is just for Michael.

Incidentally, as I was tagging the photo of Eris, she corrected – corrected – my tagging. “If you’re going to tag me, you need to do Eris (space) Stassi. That’s my tag.”

I had to remind her that this was user generated content. And that I was the user while she was just the content.


Dinner time!

Tick follows tock follows tick follows….

I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again: I am always – always – late for flights.

I always try to allow exactly the right amount of time for traffic, check in and the like but always – always – fuck it up. I’ve never missed a flight but I’ve had more than my fair share of final calls.

So why, then, am I sitting at my gate at JFK almost two hours before my flight to San Francisco boards? Seriously? No traffic? No check in queue? No security delays?

This can only mean one thing – any minute now they’re going to tell me my flight is delayed by six hours.

Still – at least I have time to catch up on emails and blog reading. Michelle has a new one. Check it (and despite the name, you should check it far often than weekly).

Also, in the last 24 hours I’ve gone from having almost no confirmed meetings in SF to a billion. If anyone else is in town and fancies some work or purely social fun – either add me on Twitter or email me at the usual.

Right – I’m going to window shop the Mont Blanc store and see if there’s a new issue of Wired or Fast Company out yet.
