More travel

September 15, 2008

Well, I’m back in Cambridge. Yet another business trip for IBM. This time it’s for the IBM Academy Conference on Future User Interfaces. On the one hand, it’s a good opportunity to network, and with a keynote and a regular talk I’ll have lots of chances to talk about what I’m doing.
On the other hand, business travel when you have a small child is an exercise in guilt. The positives may outweigh the negatives, but not by a whole lot.
I’ve decided that you can tell what sort of traveler a person is by how quickly they adjust their watch. The eager traveler will do it as soon as they’re on the plane (I used to be in this category). The reluctant traveler will never adjust their watch, preferring to keep track of the time of the place they left. That’s the category I find myself in these days; even when I go to Europe I keep my watch on PST. If nothing else it gives me a chance to practice my math skills.
