The conference has been fabulous so far, but I think the highlight for me, personally, has been reconnecting with old colleagues (David Silver, Tara McPherson, and Michele White from the NEH seminar a few years back) and getting a few faces to put with the names of folks I’m coming to consider new colleagues. Had a drink and a great conversation with Liz yesterday evening, and then dinner with Jason. There’s always a little frisson in making those first IRL contacts after a purely electronic crossing, but my meeting-up with George this summer broke the ice a bit. It’s also nice to be, if briefly, in a group among whom this blogging thing is taken a bit seriously.
On to the next session.
