[Politech] Heading west! I'm leaving DC for San Francisco

After over a decade of living and working in Washington, DC, I'm finally 
moving to the west coast.

Unless something unexpected happens, I'll relocate to San Francisco 
around August 1 and live in the city itself.

I'll continue to write about politics and technology for CNET but expand 
my coverage to include elements of computer science and aerospace -- two 
areas that I've been interested in for 20 years but have never had a 
chance to write about professionally.

It's been a long run for me as a Washingtonian (how long before one 
qualifies as a native, anyway?). I arrived for temporary stints in 1991 
and 1995 and returned for the long haul in 1996. In hindsight, that was 
far too long to live in this town.

For those of you who have the dubious pleasure of remaining in the DC 
area, I feel a little like what J.R.R. Tolkien had Bilbo say: "I don't 
know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than 
half of you half as well as you deserve."

I'd be delighted to meet up with Politechnicals once I'm on the left 
coast and get tips on what to do, where to live that's also near the 
280, and so on. Are there any local mailing lists worth joining? What 
sites are there to see when driving approximately 2,507 miles on I-80? 
Should we have a Politech gathering in SF this fall?
