0540: Awake. The city is still outside my window.
0615: Yup, I'm still sick :-(
0730: Bumped into Stephanie Ludi
on my way to the conference center. I've borrowed a lot from her Student Survival Guide
for my software engineering classes; nice to finally meet her in person.
0830: Half of the final exam for CSC301 has been written.
0900: Stephanie's talk on a robotics camp for the visually impaired---looks like it was a lot of fun (and very noisy).
0930: Sam Kamin
(author of my favorite book on programming languages
) talking about extensible software for tablet PCs. Every day, I'm more impressed with the quality and passion of the people who've chosen to come to this conference.
1200: The session was called "It Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time", and it was pretty funny. Lunch/reception, then it's all over---wish I didn't feel like crap :-(.
1600: Powell's is just as big as I remembered, and just as---I dunno. That many books in one place; where do you start?
1930: Killing time at the hotel---flight isn't for another four hours.
0320 (or 0520, or 0620---take your pick): Why are the TVs in airport waiting lounges so loud? For that matter, why are there TVs there at all?
