you may ask yourself...


"How did I get here?"

That's what I was asking myself the whole time I was at the NSF PI conference this week. What an amazing experience.

I'm still trying to sort out what I can blog about the workshop, and what I can't--many people were sharing very preliminary results, and it wouldn't be appropriate to disseminate them at this point. But I will try to sit down this week and distill some of what I took away from the whole thing.

Meanwhile, blogging will continue to be light because I leave town again on Saturday--this time for the Internet Librarian conference in Monterey. Happily, the hotel rooms there have high-speed access (and I'm hoping for conference wifi, as well).

(Speaking of wifi, there's now free access in the Rochester airport! Frontier Communications is running a business center, and the signal is strong enough to reach most of the gates in the A terminal.)


I'm repeating myself, but: check out Nick's Brick Oven Pizza (1157 Forest Ave, 375-6425) in Pacific Grove, if you can. I worked there in fall '83 and spring '84 when my family lived in PG. Good pizza. I'd be curious if Nick remembers me. Or if it's still owned by Nick.

Thanks for the reminder, George. You did post that earlier, but I wouldn't have remembered it.

I'm going to be staying at the Marriott, which bills itself as "within walking distance of Fisherman's Wharf, Cannery Row and Del Monte Beach." Never having been there, I don't know whether that means Pacific Grove is within reach (without a rental car) or not...

I think this bus or this one should get you very close.

Check out the aquarium, which is also close to your hotel. It's featured in Star Trek IV, but special effects make it look like the location is San Francisco.
