Visiting San Francisco!

Jan 23 2010 Published by under Personal, Travel

This post chronicles two firsts: my first trip to San Francisco and my first iPhone-written post!

I'm in town to attend Photonics West and meet with colleagues; today the wife and I were wandering around to see the sights.

I'll post some pics and a travelogue, though it may take a couple of days - my $200/night hotel only has wired Internet, which they charge $12/day for. They also provide only a 2 ft Internet cable.

    It's strange that this occurs in such a technology-oriented city. The conference centers around here tend to get the free internet thing right, so hopefully you'll be able to get access there.

    Oh, and sorry about the weather. It's generally much less rainy.

      This is a problem I've seen in high-priced hotels in many cities. It really irks me that I can get a room at a Holiday Inn for $100 which will provide free wifi, but a $200 "fancy" hotel will charge me extra for inferior internet service.

      I'm planning to fire off an angry letter to the chamber of commerce! 🙂 A local friend pointed out that it seems to rain every year at Photonics West. Apparently the SPIE picked the one week a year that is most likely to have rain...
