I went to Boston so as to attend LL4. I was disappointed to find that none of those great PLT guys could or would come this year, but all in all, it was a nice event, with nice people, and the last session was particularly entertaining, with presentations about gooze and frink.

What was even better, I got to meet two friends that I find truly impressive, each in his own way: Jay McCarthy and Denis Auroux.

Oh, and ITA looks like a great place at which to work, next to MIT, and with a bunch of quite nice people. (And I was happy to find that I had done well on the strawberry field problem.)

On the downside, the weather sucks as compared to California, and it'll only get worse as winter progresses. But (un)happily I'll be gone by the time it gets really bad.
