Talk me through water filtration and purification

As I'm spending more and more time on bike trips where there are many long stretches without access to reliable tap water, I'm starting to investigate water filters and purifiers as a supplement/backup solution in case the extra water I carry runs out or spills or whatever. But there are so many kinds, and some of them seem really sketchy, and I'm getting overwhelmed! Can you point me to a good, comprehensive resource on how to choose and use water purifiers and filters? Or can you talk me through a typical real-world use? Take for granted that I'll be using them within the US and am unlikely to be traveling in areas where the natural water supply is seriously contaminated.

Work travel advice, hard learned lessons?

i'm starting to travel a little bit for work soon after many years of only jumping on a plane for holidays to see the family and wondering if the AskMe community has any hard learned lessons they can bestow on the young padawan learner (sp?) that is me? How best to fly with a laptop and a digital slr? Suit case for clothes that won't make me look like i just picked my clothes off the floor (per a normal day)?

San Francisco Akihabara?

I'm going to be in San Francisco for a conference from 3/14-->3/18, but sadly not the emerging technology conference. Anyway, I was wondering if there is anything like Japan's Akihabara--some sort of dense flea market with strange gadgets and such, that I might visit. Any sort of robot-themed "performance" involving flammable materials would be cool too, but I've heard that Survival Research Labs isn't allowed to play in the city any longer. In short, what would be some cool geeky/techy things to do while there that might not be available elsewhere and won't land me in jail? [more inside]
