SFO -> YYZ. While it's not my final destination, it'll be nice to be on Canadian soil (and my old stomping grounds) for a couple hours. :)

Story
Introduction

Myriam Joire (tnkgrl) was born wearing combat boots and holding a keyboard; moments later she picked up a soldering iron. She's been stomping, typing and hacking ever since. After spending years being a code-monkey in the video game industry, she joined Engadget as Senior Mobile Editor and later Pebble as Chief Evangelist. Today she advises startups and founders on their media and product strategy, and freelances as a tech journalist for TWiT and other major publications. She's based in San Francisco.
