Nick Denton takes San Francisco to task: "During the boom, the region attracted thousands of highly-educated professionals from the East Coast of the US, and from Europe. And many of them are leaving because they are used to the buzz, wit, and bustle of a big city, and they are bored. San Francisco never quite achieved critical mass." Personally, I love San Francisco much more than I did during the boom. But then, I think that has more to do with me than the city. I've never lived in a real "big city." But, unlike the 300-person town I grew up in, I'm just grateful to find San Francisco big enough to be what you make of it. And I'm making it better than I did before.
