This week I have been in San Francisco and Napa on a business trip. First stop was at our office in Redwood Shores where we a work colleague from Lund and I) had some meetings with the “locals”. On Wednesday night we continued Napa where we checked into Silverado Resport for the Open Source Think Tank workshop.
Oracle’s offices are fun – they look like databases 🙂
Meetings in our Redwood Shores office were good and we got a lot of useful input both on our business as well how it is living and working in the SFO area. The Open Source Think Tank conference was really good and was great opportunity to meet many people working directly or indirectly with open source. We also had a great dinner at a vinery not far from the hotel.
The hotel though was another matter. It claims to be a luxury resort and the prices are thereafter. But the service is not. They were unorganized and, as I found out when I got back home and examined my bill closer, had charged me $380 too much for spa treatments and dinners that I have no memory of receiving. That is OK but not responding to my request to fix it is not, still waiting for an answer after more than one week. DON’T GO THERE!!!
We also experienced the worst rain and thunderstorms in SFO for many years. And it haled in Napa. No luck with the weather, until the last day when it was California blue sky again.
