Is Anyone Listening?

So I start the conference. I attend two sessions before lunch, which are strange affairs. First because frankly I do not understand much of what is being said. Nice cozy web stuff that I feel at home with, soon develops into mathematical algorithm. Also no one is listening. Everyone except me has a computer or pad going and display complete disinterest in the talk. I find this disrespectful. Occasionally one speaker would ask the audience for comments – total silence. There was only one question at the end of a 3 hour session.

However I went for another astounding bird ramble at lunchtime.

I am also still pretty comatose from the trip over here. Perhaps tomorrow I will go samba- dancing with long- thighed, dusky Brazilian ladies in louche bars, wearing the shabby linen suit that I bought for just that. Or there again I might go birdwatching.
