I’m enjoying some unusual luxuries (at least in the airports I’d been in during my last trip): free public Wi-fi and an electric outlet, right by a clean table in one of the food courts at the Vancouver Airport. Despite that horrible story about the tase-ing of a polish fellow some months ago, I have to say I really like this airport. My flight will be boarding in about 20 minutes, but unfortunately, Pam’s flight is delayed, and she’ll be an hour behind me instead of the original 15 minutes. This means that we’ll probably reach our hotel in San Francisco at around midnight instead of 11pm. I suspect that also means that I won’t be seeing the keynote in person tomorrow, as I find that getting up at 5 or 6 am after getting to sleep at 1 am is a sure way to ruin my day. In any case, I’ve seen Stevenotes before, and I suspect that I’ll be able to catch them in the future. Serves me right for cutting it so close.
I’ll try and blog while we’re in San Francisco, about the show, the city, the old friends I hope to see, and the little holiday that Pam and I are going to try to have before she gets into full pre-Antarctica mode. So, here’s signing off in Vancouver, and see you in the City by the Bay.
