Chip Conley where r u?

I met Chip Conley the day he was touring Uni Ave apropos of his conversion of Casa Olga into The Epithany and Lure +Till. I said I had stayed in his rock and roll dive, The Phoenix in SF. I snapped a photo, not a 2-fer selfie but he and his crew.

I am confused about him giving a keynote to a music conference: I am not sure what boat I am missing that Chip Conley rides so effortlessly. (I displaced my work in music to study policy; he sold out his share of hotels to work on festivals?)

Chip w. Chop self-borrowing from October, 2011:
On the flip-side and sunny side, Nancy Shepherd introduced me to Chop Keenan; I offered to turn my research over to him if that will help him see the light. We actually shared a moment, regarding our favorite tribe of Indians, so who knows. It definitely does not work, history has shown, to try to alienate him. Also, I met Chip Conley of Joie De Vivre, touring Our Fair City with people from Ideo and he said, off the cuff, that the Varsity Theatre would help his new hotel here, at Casa Olga site, on Hamilton, more than would more office space.
