Just giving you all the heads up that I shall be relocating to San Francisco for an indefinite amount of time in a few weeks for work. Needless to say I’m super excited about it; but still have a lot to do back home before I can jet off. Trying to get the house finished ready to rent is my main priority at the moment.
I have my visa organised and ready to go – so I will catch up with some of you over there; and farewell my friends back home… until I come home to visit that is!
Feel free to drop me any tips for things I should see/do over there!
We are currently working out of the EMusic offices which is really cool; it means that we are in Manhattan everyday. The EMusic guys are really awesome, and their offices are ace; table tennis, coffee machine etc. It has been great to catch up with Eliot Van Buskirk from The Echo Nest & evolver.fm; who we met at the Sydney Music Hack Day a few weeks ago.
To get to work each day we walk about 10 blocks to N 17th St & Bedford Ave and jump on the L-Train which takes us straight to 6th Ave & W 12th St (half a block to work from there).
Working flat out at the moment so nothing much to report on that front, but I am slowly growing to like Williamsburg; it took me a while to understand it. It reminds me a lot of West End in Brisbane; but kinda likes its great grandfather (the same way London is Melbourne’s great grandfather). Williamsburg is very grungy & (‘scuse the phrase) ‘underground’.
No further progress on where we want to live though! It is going to be so tough!
