How many times can I say this before it gets boring to read? The day after I still believe that the best part of this conference is the people — the ones presenting, the ones listening, the ones in the lobby with laptops, the ones in restaurants eating calzones, the ones in bars sampling the world’s beer, the ones singing karaoke… So many interesting people who are all passionate about the communal work we do. (With many thanks to Cindi Trainor for the stunning portraits.)
It makes me proud to be part of this profession.
And on that note, and having handled all urgent work-related email and firmly put the “I can’t fix it from DC” issues out of my head for the day, I’m off to pester my friend Jonathan for a ride to the Metro, to go explore the National Mall for the afternoon.
