What to do in San Francisco next week

I'll be in San Francisco next week the 17th through the 21st (hopefully) raising some capital for my startup company. While I'm in the Bay area I'd like to attend some startup/tech related informal meetups or unconferences. Is there a good event calendar for this sort of thing? I've found a few listings but not anything that's exhaustive.

Updating OS on a New Mac...While Keeping it Virginally New

[NOTE: you may believe that's a silly thing to desire. Your disdain has been pre-registered, but I stupidly persist in hoping for this result]. Is there any way to update the OS and then completely erase my own footprints? [more inside]
