That said, here are some of the people I met, and the treats they shared, there:
My co-panelist, whose witty, pithy presentation was a very tough act to follow.
A passel of art history professors, not all shared here, who made this newbie feel immeasurably welcome.
Some treats -- feasts for the eye and mind.
(Oh, turn the sound down when clicking on that last link -- it's a bit loud.)
Now, off to the airport...
Addendum from the road (mostly for Marly):
* The paper was very well received -- had a great Q&A session which will further strengthen it before Kalamazoo; one gent said the part about Boccaccio blew him away. (Wow!)
* And I now have a reload of the cold/fever/virus thingie that bit me a little while ago. Less than fun to work a trade show with such, but we're on track to meet business goals despite it.
