Part of the reason I didn't schlep any equipment along was that I was going to a reception right afterward, for Jaiku, a sort of microblogging Web 2.0 company involved with this week's Supernova conference. (I'm funcrunch there too if anyone wants to check it out; not sure if I'll use it much.) The meetup was originally supposed to be in SOMA, but was quite fortuitously moved to a larger location, two blocks away from my rehearsal, at the last minute. In any case, I wanted to attend specifically to meet Leo Laporte, whose podcasts and tech shows I have enjoyed for years. And I did! :-)
I took a bunch of other photos too of course. The wacky Finns hosting the event get extra special credit for making it snow in the Mission. As I was leaving, I loved seeing people walking down Valencia Street looking up and going "WTF?!?"
