It is I … Jen … and I’m in SAN FRAN FREAKING CISCO!!!!!
I feel so …. charged!!! I love love love exploring new cities and getting to play.
Why am I in SF you may ask?
For #TCDisrupt silly goose. See, my twitter buds over at @andesbeat reached out to me asking to cover the conference for them. They’re ALLLLLL the way in Chile and couldn’t afford the ticket so instead of incurring the costs they picked up my bus ticket and BOOM! here I be!!
I’m super honored at the offer and look!! I have a fancy pants press badge ….
I feel SO freaking fancy pants.
Anywho, AndesBeat got me here, and til Wednesday I’m crashing with my buddy @brokeassstuart (could you ASK for a better host of this city, btw!! The man IS SF!!) but last week I had tweeted out about getting around in general. See, the times that I’ve been in SF before I had a car from Ford. Now, I am sans car.
To my absolute absolute absolute delight, I had not one, not two, not three, but FOUR services reach out to me offering to take care of transportation.
The first one was a really cool service called LYFT.
It’s an app that you download on your phone and it calculates your GPS and with two quick clicks sends a driver to you! (mine came in less than 5 minutes!!)
I had an AMAZING time last night with Igor, and I’ll tell you all more about it in my wrap up.
Gotta jet now though, I have some nerdy talking to do.
Dudes, can I tell you how RAD it is being a female at tech conferences?? For really reals reals, NO LINES IN THE LADIES ROOM!!!!
Happiest. Camper. Ever.
Many blessings to you guys, and if anyone is at the conference and wants to meet up feel free to tweet me: @JenFriel
Very very very special thanks to AndesBeat for the sponsorship.
