Hello from Vancouver

Here are views from my hotel room in the Hyatt downtown

I'm so happy to be here. Not only is SPR my favorite academic conference, but it is also a place to see former students and friends. In fact, last night at 1am local time, I was checking into the hotel. I was the ONLY person in the lobby aside from employees. But, then when I turned around and headed for the elevator, there was IU-Telecomm. PhD Mija Shin (although she did not look as blurry as she did in this picture)! She had just arrived, having driven from relatively nearby Washington State University in Pullman.

It was great to see her. I only wish that it hadn't been 4am to my body's clock. Otherwise I would have taken time to catch up with her.
