Yes, ironic, I know. Oracle OpenWorld is here and that means tons of people taking over my backyard, Yerba Buena Gardens, tons of crowds on the sidewalks, and snarling traffic jams for blocks as people try to maneuver around the closure on Howard Street. Howard Street will again be closed for 9 days between 3rd and 4th Streets from November 8th through 17th to accommodate the conference. Why does the city put up with this? The Oracle conference, with over 45,000 attendees, pumps $80 million into the local economy. I guess I can let people use my backyard for a few weeks.
