AAAS 2010 meeting – arrived in San Diego

After four uneventful flights and a crazy night in Vegas (no, not crazy in that way), I have finally arrived in San Diego. Checked in a hotel that is far away from the convention center. Exhausted.

Pretty much impossible to get online, use the iPhone, check mail anywhere in Las Vegas. The only means of communication I could (sometimes) use was Twitter, using Twitterific!

The wifi at the hotel is slowish but works. I hope it’s better at the convention center where I’ll spend most of the time over the next three days.

I am a notorious coca-colic. Yet, all I could find in Vegas, or at the Vegas airport, or at LAX airport, was Pepsi. Yuck! Thus Coke was the first thing I bought when I arrived in San Diego…

The day before I left, I finally managed to get my Gmail down to Inbox Zero, for the first time since January 10th, 2005. Now, when I finally managed to get online (security layers on my PLoS-issued laptop make it difficult to troubleshoot and finally get to work various hotel wifis), there were almost 100 messages there. Got them down to ten really quickly…

Off to sleep, will start blogging AAAS tomorrow…
