I'm home from the conference and for anyone who was checking I did not do a day-by-day, up-to-the-minute account of my conference experience. And that is because Blog Central, aka Golden Gate Perk, was inexplicably not open during its posted business hours, or pretty much any time on Friday or Saturday. It was terribly disappointing, as I had many exciting things to report. That reportage will have to take place now, in the "recollected in tranquillity" portion of my conference-going. I will, however, make the report in the name of science (social science, that is).
I'm going to do this in short bits rather than in one long report. For one thing, longer posts also take longer to post. Also, I think shorter posts make easier reading.
