I ended up going through the poster hall late in the day yesterday and early in the day today, which means I walked by a bunch of interesting posters that weren't there because the authors either hadn't put them up first thing or had already taken them down before the end of the day. Why would you do that? The entire reason that posters hang all day is so that people can look at them whenever they have the time to get over there!
Yesterday I hiked over to the Dropbox offices to have lunch with Rawhide and Wumpf (who has an office nearby). I got to see the infamous chrome panda and have tasty lunch and good conversation, yay! And then at dinner, Schmooz and Quincy and I went to Hog & Rocks. We ended up just having a bunch of appetizer plates for dinner, including a number of raw oysters, which I mostly liked, except for the one variety that was less briny and more, like, organ-meat-y. We also got a ham flight. I hesitated over whether it was too egregiously foodie to bear, but it was really good. Four varieties of ham, all very different and all really yummy. Definitely glad I did it.
And then tonight I had dinner with Xris Onufryk downtown. Just burgers, but tasty. We showed each other lots of cat photos. And then she showed me her powerpoint presentations about shower curtains! Which was genuinely delightful to me. In return I showed her how is prangent formed and we laughed until we cried. YAT!
