Sighted as I stuff my face with free food in the staging room.



75% of all event-related problems can be fixed with this stuff. I salute our staff for having their shit together for this conference, which just started and continues through 4:30 tomorrow afternoon. The dean just said in her opening remarks that she conceived of the idea only six months ago, so I'm impressed that they got so many good folks lined up and got such a big audience to come. I'm volunteering for random stuff like passing out programs, and in doing so all of our faculty and doctoral students saw me dressed up and looking responsible. Hopefully major suck-up points are being awarded for this.

Damn it. I want to go to that conference.

I often wonder why I didn't go into urban planning.

All the presentations will be on Youtube eventually; not quite the same as the in-person experience but also less overwhelming. :]
