East coast blackout as seen from space?
I bought a Creative Labs MuVo player, 128MB, for $129 at CompUSA, so I could listen to the Chris Lydon interviews on my daily walks. Trivially simple to use, just plug it into the USB port, copy the MP3 files across.
David Weinberger wonders about plural nouns for bloggers. I like bevy myself. Funny reading east coast bloggers in the morning from the west coast. Everyone here is still asleep, except me. Even Starbucks isn't open yet.
I forgot how beautiful it is
Last night, walking around Pacific Heights after dinner, I was struck by all the For Rent signs on all kinds of beautiful homes in dramatically beautiful places. It was chilly and foggy, I wore a sweater and a jacket, in August. What a difference from the hot muggy weather in Boston.
The prices are much more reasonable than I remember. Later, coming back, I realized that the hotel I'm in, a luxurious Union Square hotel, is virtually empty. Then I read this NY Times article about how cheap travel to SF is, and then it hit me. This place has become a bargain.
I was talking on the walk last night about how nice it would be to live in one of those Pacific Heights apartments for a year, until I realized "There's no Harvard here." It would be a relaxing year, reading books, driving to the wine country. A year of retirement, perhaps. Or with the cheap air fare, a pied a terre, a few thousand miles from home?
