It is almost over, the annual ATA conference in San Francisco. In a few minutes, the closing reception will start, and then tomorrow, before dawn, I’ll wing back toward Missouri.
I met lots of old friends and colleagues and many new ones. It was a very well attended conference. On Tuesday night, while having dinner with Michael M., we even experienced an earthquake. The joint anniversary dinner of the German and French language divisions on Thursday night was a highlight – 120 people celebrating 10 years of divisionhood. (The cap for the dinner was 120; the actual membership of the GLD alone is more like 1,200.)
A great conference in a great city. Next year’s gathering in Orlando will probably pale by comparison.
