It’s Conference Season!

June 4th, 2008 by Potato

Well, conference season is in full swing, and I’ve only got a few days back home here before I’m off again. I’d apologize for not keeping up my usual tri-weekly posting frequency during this madness, except that the site’s traffic and the number of people asking “Oh, do you have any pictures from Victoria?” indicate that no one is reading it any more.

My presentation in Victoria was not as good as it could have been: just as I was getting up on stage, the organizer told me I had to cut my talk down to 6 minutes (from the 9 it had been originally scheduled for) which put me into a bit of a panic. So things were rushed and I sounded nervous and it just wasn’t as smooth as I would have liked.

I don’t recall if I mentioned it in the other post or not, but Victoria is such a home to small cars that it even has half-sized parking spots for Smarts and Minis! The weather was fantastic for the whole week, very mild and partly sunny. For the end of the afternoon on the last day the clouds or haze that had been covering the Olympic mountains in Washington finally cleared, and I got this picture of the snow-capped peaks over the shoulder of the BC legislature.
