Last week I went down to Washington, D.C. to deliver a paper at a conference in the technical field where I worked, ten years or so and two or three careers ago, before the dot.com trash. The trip was solely an exercise in merit-making, since I doubt very much I'll get work in the field, but reconnecting with old friends was really great -- even if some of them did not recognize the older, greyer, and heavier me, nor I the (ditto) them -- and I got to have dinner with DCBlogger and letsgetitdone.
