Wow don't put yourself down like that.

There's nothing wrong with being old, but software and other "new-economy" companies in the Bay Area are notoriously ageist. If you're over 30, you're pretty much out of luck if you're trying to get in as a new hire.

I know there's nothing wrong with being old but you said it like it was a bad thing. And the intelligent thing, too..

Well if you want to go to SF then go protest if you have too! (I'm serious)

While I've never been there..........

To the people that live outside of the United States, how attractive is San Francisco Bay Area to you?
I think it's a beautiful city. I'm such a sucker for Victorian architecture. While I find the iconic cable cars neat, I absolutely love the use of vintage PCC streetcars.

Quote:
As a place that you could visit on a trip or possibly move to one day in the future.
Hm. I don't think I would move there, but I wouldn't write it off by any means. If I were to go to San Francisco on a trip, it would have to be part of something bigger. I wouldn't fly to SF....just to go to SF. It would be my end destination, as I would take a two day rail cruise on the California Zephyr across America, with SF being the last stop.


Quote:
How important is San Francisco to you where you live, how often do you hear about it?
Save from the tech coming out of the area....it's not important at all. I never hear about it unless something happens there. And it's not just because Canadian media may not pick up on it, because where I live, I get more sources of American media than Canadian.


Quote:
Is it a super popular place in your city/country/area of the world?
Well......I mean, everyone has heard of San Francisco, but nobody is raving about it for no reason what-so-ever. ..............Now that i think of it, I can't say I personally know anyone who has actually been there. If they have, they never said anything about it.

Quote:
Are there any American cities that you like more than it? Less than it?



Couldn't tell ya.



...not sure where my vote goes here in the poll. lol
