    Do they always have it in San Francisco? Have you been to San Francisco? I’m going for a few days in August and would be interested in what you found worth seeing!

    Kate, the conference is always in a different US city (last year it was in Dallas, next year it’ll be in Washington, D.C.). But I spent a few days in San Francisco back in 1996, though I don’t really remember much about it. One thing you really don’t want to do is to walk from Fisherman’s Wharf to the Coit Tower … We did that, and it was one of the most horrible experiences of my life.
