FA L L I N G I N L O V E W I T H … SAN FRANCISCO ALAN DEUTSCHMAN REPORTS ON HOW SAN FRANCISCO’S HIGH-TECH BOOM HAS PRESERVED THE PLEASURES OF ITS LOW-TECH PAST Twenty years ago, when I left my position as a writer for a magazine in Manhattan to become its San Francisco correspondent, the move mystified my colleagues back home. In my new town, my fellow reporters and I jokingly called ourselves The Foreign Correspondents’ Club. To our editors in New York, we might as well have been in some minor world capital, where we enjoyed enviable lifestyles but wouldn’t come across much of global importance to report on. While New York had Wall Street and Los Angeles had Hollywood, San Francisco’s claim was its proximity to Silicon Valley, but computers were still boring and microchips were unspeakably geeky. Then, everything changed. Al Gore was elected vice president and told us about the “information superhighway,” which became a dazzling reality as the Internet turned the Bay Area into a Big Story, the new locus of innovation and power — and astonishing wealth. The sudden infusion of fast money could easily threaten the unique character and aesthetics of an old city, but San Francisco has handled it all with grace, preserving its neighborhood enclaves with their thousands of Victorian and Edwardian 32 W W W.
