Yesterday I flew to San Francisco for Web 2.0. I went to my hotel, then to the Conference hotel to hang out and register. Since Socialtext is a sponsor I received a bright yellow badge with an even brighter ribbon. That's new to me, but so is Web 2.0. I know a bunch of folks at this conference, but none of them were around yesterday. Thankfully my co- worker Jon Prettyman arrived around dinner time so we took a walk to North Shore for food.
North Shore was cool. We found a Rogue Beer Garden, October Fest style, and sampled some Rogue and German beers. Then we went to a Seafood and Jazz place for dinner. They serve New Orleans and Cajun food while the band dishes out the tunes. Gelato and a last call drink finished off the excursion and I crashed in my room.
Now I'm up at 6:30am, my bright yellow badge almost glowing to keep me awake. Today should be fun. Several Socialtext employees get to speak at the conference and I get to meet some friends again.
