Got on Highway 101 at 6:30 a.m. and drove to Larkspur (took 90 minutes from Santa Rosa) missed the ferry I wanted, got off at the wrong bus stop in SF, missed most of the Keynote. The audience was sparse, there were no free Google classes, the schwag was limited. Worst of all was the total of three hours I spent in traffic on 101 because I was in rush hour traffic in both directions. Not a good use of my time. I won’t be going to SES again.
But going to San Francisco is always nice and, although it was foggy on the way over, the sky was clear on the way back and I saw the top of the 13-story sail of the America’s Cup contender from New Zealand. Shopping was fun but next time I will take the slow boat on Saturday.
