Hi All: As you may well have noticed, my blog ain't what it used to be. I'm leaving it fallow for a bit, but will post super amazing things if they slip the attention of the other awesome events blogs that are giving the SF public all they need in terms of quality event details. There are links at the right to these. SF Funcheap being numero uno (congrats Johnny!). Scoutmob, Bold Italic, 7x7, Seaweed Sway, and countless others have moved onto the events scene with resources and passion and great bandwidth, so let them guide your way and go take advantage of this amazing city. Thanks for a great 4.5 years!
