wet after a walk to nursery, the station and work all in the rain. Feeling oddly refreshed from the experience
first webex webinar experience not as bad as expected
it seems I’ll be living in keynote this week, there are worse places, I suppose.
we moved internal offices whilst I was away, adjusting to the new space and getting back into the work groove for 4 days, then off to xtech.
quiet largely offline day yesterday, gardening and play with the little boy, lunch with my parents and the last of the unpacking
XTech talk outline taking shape, another try at sleep now.
completely can’t sleep, 2 hour nap this afternoon has thrown my jetlag completely, working on xtech talk now.
I’m fairly convinced I cracked a rib in San Francisco, whilst sober. I’m still sore from Tuesday night, boo. Only my second broken bone =)
lovely day with my little boy and his extended family. Two year old birthdays with sfo-lhr jet lag are hard work though.
planning a barbeque, first of the year, jet lag on amber and rising
at home unpacking and preparing for a little boy’s birthday. My rib is still sore which is dull.
At Lhr having left Tinker Belle.
Boarded and have glass of fizz in hand see you all in 10 hours or so.
charging laptop at gate a8 whilst waiting to board vs20 to LHR. Looking forward to sleeping on the plane, last three months have been hectic
missing sessions on Oauth at web2expo and Kellan’s session, boo. Bought lovely presents for Lucy and Oscar yay Got bulkhead in premium yayx2
heading to SFO to go to the lovely SF moma shop for presents, then check in for VS20
gradually wrapping up here, saying good night to the little boy and a bit of shopping, lunch and thence to the airport
sat in the keynote room, towards the front
blueshift markets, nice expression
packing to head home, could really do with another day or two here to sort some things out, but can’t wait to be home too.
So with kevin and christy in the w, anyone else nearby? Send me a d message thx or tell up of better parties
busy in Toby Segaran’s talk, room 2/3 full and still coming in, talk is good so far.
lovely lunch via nebmobile
had fun last night at various parties. Feeling more cheerful about talk following +ve feedback. My audience http://is.gd/8CE thanks @duncan
sat in a very quiet speakers room at web2expo, keynotes in 15 minutes
Clay Shirky and Scott Berkun both good
dinner plans forming in lobby
talk went ok, I felt not on form for it
going over to web2open ui for data portability session
awake and getting ready to head over to @fireball moscone, last couple of slides to tweak and breakfast to find before Jones and Coates.
feeling a bit unwell, not brilliant the night before my talk. Have had one beer, but small dinner and lots of coffee, I’m sure I’ll be fine.
wondering if I’ve overused metaphor in my talk
escaped my hotel room to maxfields
room service lunch looking out an an increasingly grey San Francisco and rehearsing / fiddling with my slides
wondering why it took me so long to buy music for airports
now have had pancakes, obtained a decent length ethernet cable 14’ and am continuing work on my talk.
breakfast finally, very hungry now, heading down to marriott sf restaurant for pancakes
flights booked for xtech, flying ryanair due to availability, they are still an awful experience, money grabbing for every last thing.
awake in San Francisco, listening to last night’s music splurge and catching up with people in the UK
lovely night out with Blaine and Maureen et al, then a couple of hours music shopping in the Virgin shop, awesome.
failing to manage to stay up until midnight, even with a bail full of new music to play with, maybe the mathcore would’ve been a good idea
coffee then moo/flickr/blurb party I think, definitely coffee first though
Landed at sfo and had a good flight, no one sat in front of me. Headed to the Marriott to check in and see who is around, after immigration.
Onboard tubular bell again and headed for sfo, packed flight and i’m in the middle of a row of four. Still here comes the fizz :)
At heathrow and have got an upgrade yay. Now waiting to board.
cab booked for 6:30 am tomorrow, early start
having a lovely weekend in sussex
Long slow drive to sussex, settled in for ensuing chaos with 11 people including 3 children, fun.
Off to sussex for the weekend for family birthday, then straight to LHR on Monday morning and off to SFO
