A Week in SF

The last week of March I spend in San Francisco.  It has been nearly ten years since I left.  Much has changed.  Much has not.  I went out there specifically to be part of the live audience of Creative Live's Social Media Week.  In addition to being one of my favorite ways of learning from my photo ...
