... palm trees line the Embarcadero, the grand boulevard that wraps around the top of San Francisco.
I'm not sure how they manage it here--it's cool and often foggy, nothing like the deserts or tropical isles where palms are native.
But they do survive. Barely.
I'm here in San Francisco today to give a talk entitled The Nature of Literacy and Learning in the Future. You can see the program for the Pacific Library Partnership conference here.
You won't be surprised when I say that learning how to do effective research is a critical skill.
So I'll be at the San Francisco Public Library today, enjoying chatting with librarians and researchers.
And as a side-effect, I'll write up my ruminations on palm trees tomorrow.
