The event

A quick thanks to everyone who came out the other night to see Lawrence Weschler and BLDGBLOG speak at San Francisco's Park Life Store – I had a blast. I had a really great time, actually – and I'd love to do it again.
We were celebrating the paperback reissue of Weschler's book Everything That Rises: A Book of Convergences, and otherwise just talking about the things that interest us – from the world's largest platinum deposit and artificial reefs off the coast of Israel, to the LA-based Institute for Figuring, underground infrastructure, and how to hurl Taj Mahals into the sky.
And a huge thanks to both McSweeney's and the Park Life Store for hosting it!

Hey Geoff, have you got any events planned for San Fran in mid-November? My girlfriend and I (both long time readers) are visiting from Glasgow for ten days & would love to see you speaking or just catch up for a beer or coffee & debate the emotional authenticity of Los Angeles or the underwater future of the UK?

Tim - Unfortunately not, but I do have an event in LA...

If you want to get a beer or something, though, send me an email when you get into town. Have a good trip!
