Last Saturday I was walking up Sutter street in San Francisco in search of a restaurant, having just checked in to my hotel. A lady approached me and remarked on my little badge with an RDF Icon pinned to my grey pullover, wondering what it was about. She herself had two large badges, one of which read "Borat for President!", under the smiling picture of the comedian. She then went on to invite me to an exhibition opening down the road. I followed a little bemused, and ended up indeed in the opening of Barbara McQueens exhibit of photos, many very nice ones of the late Steve McQueen. There were a few drinks and nice finger food so I stayed around to hear her speak, and ended up meeting Barabara Traub (photo of her) who has just recently published a new Book Desert to Dream: A Decade of Burning Man Photography, a collection of stunning pictures of the crazy desert festival.
So in one go I linked up the Semantic Web, Steve McQueen, Burning Man and Borat.
