Boston - Banff

So, DIS went well. Our panel was great fun - thanks again to Dan, Liz, Lalya and Jonah - and we got some really positive feedback. On the other hand, for the remainder of the conference I heard people using the word "hack" until it pretty much lost all meaning for me. Funny how that works.

As usual, the best part of the conference was conversations with good people. I caught up with friends and made new ones - but there is never enough time to talk to everyone and still maintain one's sanity as an introvert. I also got to take a look at the Stata Centre and walk around Harvard, although Cambridge generally made me feel ill-at-ease. I don't think I've ever been in a place where every single service-worker was a person of colour or obviously a new immigrant. The signs of empire seemed all too alive and well there.

I'll post my paper and panel notes as soon as stoopid Air Canada finds my baggage - but I'm sure there are way better notes already online somewhere.

And yes, I am now in Banff - the mountains restoring me with every breath. Of course it is stunningly beautiful, and although I only got here in time for the last panel of the day, the Responsive Environments and Ubiquitous Presence Summit is looking really good!

But now I should go meet Katherine and talk about our panel tomorrow.
