San Francisco, We Meet Again – Part 2

I’ve rambled a bit on how I’ve made my way back to San Francisco from Hong Kong and what the experience has felt like so far. Rather than spurt out more deep emotional and philosophical heaviness, I’d rather just skip straight to the fun stuff that everyone loves to read about. So here’s a quick recap of my SF adventures over the last two months.

I love my new job and office. It’s in a co-working space called RocketSpace in the Financial District of SF. I’ve really underestimated little perks like free coffee, bagels and even beer!

In the new office…

Work has been crazy, as any new job is, but I’m still getting out to reconnect with old friends and make a few new ones. There is something going on every weekend that I’m still having difficulty keeping up with. I will say this, SF has much more going on socially than HK. Here’s a few pictures. If you have any suggestions of what else I should do in SF, leave a comment!

On This Day In History…

I find it fun sometimes to look back at history on specific days to see how the world was shaped. Many TV and radio stations in the United States will do this on occasion and call it “this day in history”. So here is a short list of my fun facts for the 30th day of January…

  • 1847 – Yerba Buena is renamed to San Francisco
  • 1862 – USS Monitor, the US Navy’s 1st ironclad warship is launched
  • 1931 – Charlie Chaplin’s “City Lights” premieres at the Los Angeles Theater
  • 1933 – “Lone Ranger” begins a 21-year run on ABC radio
  • 1956 – Elvis Presley records his version of “Blue Suede Shoes”
  • 1969 – The Beatles perform their last show together, a free concert
  • 1982 – Richard Skrenta writes the first PC virus code, which is 400 lines long and disguised as an Apple boot program

Oh yeah, and on this day in history… I was born!
