   Man, San Francisco is a pretty sweet place to be right now if you're
making stuff - I've seen lots of innovator residency programs offered
lately. The latest is this one by Swissnex, which I believe is a Government
of Switzerland technological outreach program. They want to pay you to work
on your project in their maker studio and make a bunch of Swiss
connections. (In SanFran)
