Meet and greet.

And now I am at work again.

As those of you who are academics will know, many academics don't like to (or simply won't) follow directions, which can include things like, "We will not be reading papers aloud at this conference but instead will do brief introductions to our topics and then have a discussion."  All of which bodes strangely for my own presentation, as I am in no way planning to read my paper aloud, and I do want my audience to discuss.  Which is more difficult than sitting and listening.

The view from lunch was, as you can see, lovely and neo-iconic.
