We're all back from Macworld San Francisco, where we had a good time despite gusty wind and rain and a somewhat ho-hum show. Our personal high points came when playing country mice riding up the multiple floors of semi-circular escalators at the Nordstrom store on Market Street and riding up the 32-floor-high external glass elevators at the Westin St. Francis hotel. Close behind was the night when Tonya didn't want a serious sit down dinner, but "just a hamburger or something." We ended up at a diner called The Original Perfect Hamburger, appropriately enough, but behind that oh-so-American moniker hid the fact that the Oriental proprietors also served Chinese food. This made for some fun combinations, such as my meal of eggrolls and onion rings. On the Sunday after Macworld, I gave a keynote to a wonderful group the MacSciTech conference, and then we found time for a cable car ride, with the trip back made more exciting walking the last nine blocks due to a pair of cable cars put out of commission.
