Am I in the wrong city?

While at work today, I was rung up by an old University friend from Bristol, who was stopping off in London for a minute period of time between his epic jaunts around the world promoting his internet empire. He’s heading off to California in the next few days – San Francisco via Los Angeles – where he is likely to stay for at least a month. And he’ll be going back again around a month after that. He kept tantalising me with stories of the exciting world of internet start-ups and huge salaries – tempting me with the possibility of interesting and varied jobs for a young web coder/editor/producer like myself. And I have to say that I am beginning to think that he might be right.
