OK, I’m fading. See you when America finally catches up with Friday. [Gone.]

I’m aghast that some people’s “perfect” way to end was to spend the rest of the day and evening talking marketing. Have you no lives?

@daev Hey I’m a bit classier than that! It’s only like six beers. Or so. I don’t know. Counting is for primary school kids.

@Nickhodge Thank you. I enjoyed today’s Crikey piece. It was quite an amazing experience being in that room. God bless America.

@GT_DJ Thank you. I’ve been explaining American history to a young American. He was complaining that Americans are stupid. Also, beer.

Me at Crikey: Letter from San Francisco / Bill Clinton / WikiLeaks http://arseh.at/2m1 [Paywall’d, free trial]

Pro tip: Just because a bakery is open 24 hours doesn’t mean its products are particularly good.

I have just read an email which implicates me as a Christmas Elf. There’s quite a bit of Wrong right there.

I am back at the hotel. Six bottles of Singha counts as dinner, right?

@wjpepperell It is traditional to refer to previous US presidents as “President X” as a courtesy.

@Mrgareth Ta. There is no way I’m gonna watch that video on roaming data charges. ;) When I’m back at the hotel…

via Cloudhopper

Ah. We have electricity. Also, drunk federal workers.

via Cloudhopper

So, the power has failed. Still, I’m talking to Mike, the web dev student from Stockton, who is explaining much local wisdom.

via Cloudhopper

The rowdy group is the Christmas party for the Federal Department of Lands, or something. The federal offices are a couple blocks away.

via Cloudhopper

Ha! Restaurant section closed until 8pm for private function, very rowdy. Bar works. I order Singha in Thai. The waitress is Chinese. Fail.

via Cloudhopper

Mobile: Down the street to said restaurant for dinner and a beer, and then back to the hotel for… an early night? Attention limited.

via TweetDeck

Aha! Just one block away is Lalita Distinctive Thai Restaurant and Bar. In Google Street View it does not look like a strip joint.

via TweetDeck

Backup complete. Now, where to hunt food? Around Civic Centre? Across to SOMA? I’m not in the mood to go far now it’s dark and I’m tired.

via TweetDeck

Gawd it’s nearly 5.30pm. My internal clock is still weirded out. I think I’d better go eat and then. As soon as this backup is finished.

via TweetDeck

Decisions. More transcribing of interviews? Or hunt for food?

via TweetDeck

Met at @zdnetaustralia: “Wikileaks could gag sources: Bill Clinton” http://arseh.at/2ll

Crikey story filed! With fixed verbs. I hope.

via TweetDeck

Ah, internets! I’ll catch up on @replies and stuff shortly. First I have to rattle out a story for Crikey, maybe one for elsewhere.

via TweetDeck

Plans change again. Bugger lunch. I’ll try to check in slightly early so I can has interest.

via Cloudhopper

Whoever told me there’s free Wi-Fi all over San Francisco lied. But my interview at the Monaco is done. Now, lunch. And find Wi-Fi.

via Cloudhopper

Next stop Geary St and the.Monaco Hotel for another interview.

via Cloudhopper

The Westin Market St is not on Market St. But they have a conference with Edward Tufte. Alas that was not my interview.

via Cloudhopper

Oh. Of course the remarkably cheap hotel is in the Tenderloin. Seems a bit like Sydney’s Kings Cross before gentrification.

via Cloudhopper

So that’s now three people I’ve passed who were smoking a joint.

via Cloudhopper

Walking down Market St, San Francisco, to my new hidey-hole at the Renoir Hotel. Lovely day.

via Cloudhopper

@rycrozier Um, no. I suspect that I shouldn’t send my story to you. Competing outlets etc. Still, if there were to be a bidding war…

via TweetDeck in reply to rycrozier

“Zombies living on Twitter”, that’s the current story on CNBC. What IS going on here?

via TweetDeck

Ah, the event officially ends at 1200. So the media centre closes. And I’ll have to find my own lunch? WTF?

via TweetDeck

ZDNet.com.au story filed! I wonder when someone will wake up to receive and process it?

via TweetDeck

Hmmm… The media centre is closing in half an hour. I’ll have to find another quiet cubby-hole to work from.

via TweetDeck

Mobile: Check out of Intercontinental; walk to Moscone Centre; breakfast in the media centre.

If any Australian attendees at Dreamforce still want to catch up and comment on this week’s announcements, please ping me.

via TweetDeck

Thu (Fri) plan: Record more interviews at Dreamforce and file some stories; change hotels; dinner somewhere interesting in San Francisco.

Thu (Fri) plan: Record interviews at Dreamforce and file a couple of stories; change hotels; dinner somewhere interesting in SFO.

via TweetDeck

Kinda curious watching all the WikiLeaks and other news while I’m solidly booked on Dreamforce. Seems so distant when not immersed daily.

via TweetDeck

Oh look. Thursday. This’ll be fun.
