The San Francisco Dolby team said farewell tonight to visiting journos and tecchies with a 9 pm dinner at the Mark Hopkins hotel. I have lots of notes, riffs and impressions to file after returning to Los Angeles tomorrow morning, but thanks to Joshua Gershman, Joan Levy, Kelli Havlik, Daniel Schneider and Julie Mathis for being thorough, thoughtful and tireless in taking care of their visitors.
