Web 2.0 Expo travel

We have just been incredibly fortunate this far. I last flew commercial soon after 9/11, and the experience was harsh to say the least. Anotinio Gramsci once wrote that the downfall of a secular democracy was the continuous surrendering of freedoms in exchange for protection from our fellow citizens. Our travel experience to SF this weekend has taught me how much the human spirit can shine despite and perhaps paradoxically because of difficult circumstance. We have been graced by the goodwill of so many of our fellow citizens that I am tacitly aware of Gramsci's error if unable to put words to it.

Today has been incredible, but I must save my emotive prose for another time.
