Geeks Rule!

Geekfest 2006 goes to the home of the Braves! The Geek-Factor has never been higher anywhere on the east coast, and I'm proud to say, with me here, it's just a little bit higher.

I'm reporting to you live from the ATL, here for the annual meeting for the Society for Neuroscience. Geeks from all over the globe have traveled here, over 25,000 of them already, and we'll be here for most of the week, reporting all our findings about various kinds of geekery. I'm staying at the OMNI Hotel, which is just a hundred feet from the convention center. It's very nice here, as long as you don't go outside. Outside, you're gonna die.

There are several sources of stress that should be relieved after this week. This meeting is not really a vacation, and I'm supposed to present my data tomorrow too. I wasn't nervous about it, but I started getting nervous today. I've been telling myself that nobody that knows my project better than me, I'll let you know tomorrow if that's true.

I did get back to running this morning. 3 miles and I felt like a hundred dollars. My muscles didn't feel sore at the beginning but started to rather quickly. But it was a good run. Atlanta's not all that bad, I was just being an ass, earlier. There are a lot of nice hills here, and it was cold, like forty-something.

Listening to: Rick Ross - Hustlin' (I know Pablo........Norieaga, the real norieaga, he owe me a hundred favors.)

Keith.
