If you're heading out to the ICSID/IDSA World Congress/Connecting '07 event in San Francisco next week and have yet to make accommodations, well, consider networking in your jam-jams. That's right. For "an affordable alternative to hotels in the city," imagine yourself in a fellow design industry person's home, fresh awake from a snooze on the ol' air mattress, chatting about the day's upcoming events over Pop Tarts and OJ.
During a casual conversation about the upcoming IDSA conference, two local San Francisco deigners came up with a simple idea: rent out extra space in their SOMA loft apartment to conference attendees. Then, create a web site to let others in San Francisco rent their space.
And so was born AirBed & Breakfast, where "guests" receive a home-cooked breakfast (not necessarily Pop Tarts, but hey, we can't guarantee anything) and designertype hosts who know their way around town. AB&B also encourages SF locals to list their apartments soon, if interested.
Jeannie is a true jack-of-all trades, looks forward to a day gone swimmingly, and finds joy in all things awesome. Brilliant art, rocking the renegade music scene, conjuring up haute designs, other people's hot designs, tasty salad, trashy magazines and unicorns are some of the many things she is passionate about.
