ILC 2005, Tuesday morning 

So, here I am at ILC 2005 at Stanford. It turns out the wireless connectivity is excellent, so I might be able to blog a bit during the conference.

This morning was a bit of a mess. I rushed out of the house first thing this morning and drove over from the east bay. I thought I'd be late, but it turns out I was a little early. I had some trouble getting ahold of a parking pass and getting my badge. The registration desk was a bit late getting started. Oh, well, that's what happens when you arrive on the third day as opposed to right up front. I managed to avoid getting a parking ticket and got situated.

It's a bit of a who's who here. Frankly, it's like seeing every Lisp-related person I have interacted with on the net, live, in one place. I saw Brian Mastenbrook earlier this morning. I saw John Wiseman a few minutes ago. I plopped down in a seat next to Pascal Costanza. Kenny Tilton just walked by. What fun. Sort of the Lisp equivalent of standing along the red carpet at the Oscars. Remind me to introduce myself...
