Golden GateSo I’m in the states and hitting the tech world hard… well… mainly I’ve been harassing Tom Coates until he tells me everything he knows about the city and where I can get a decent cup of tea (turns out there isn’t one).

But actually that really does seem to be the only bad thing about the city so far… really… I think I’m in love and am wondering how persuasive I’d have to be to get the BBC to put a ‘start up’ office out here. I have the gift of the gab but I don’t think I’m that good.

I’ve spent today at Brickhouse with Tom and I can really see how this thing works – I just wonder if there are any parallels we can pull over to the beeb – probably – but that will require a lot more work than just copying things hook line and sinker.
