good to be home

I love San Francisco. It's so ... so ... so ... not snowing.

I was in Toronto this week to take part in a CBC conference. It was so wonderful, and the people I met were just incredible. Positive, excited, engaged. Zero attitude and an absolute lack of the been-there-done-that-ness.

Dig this: The CBC has over a hundred people who's job it is to put great stuff on the web for the Canadian people. Because they're there, I guess. Americans can't contribute a dollar a year to the NEA without losing sleep over it. Yeesh.

But that's a rant for another time, hopefully after the jetlag wears off. For now, it's just good to be home.
