Sorry for the sudden drop off in posting last week, but the official opening of BEA came with a flurry of work, and meetings, and hastily made appointments, and free books, and more. Hectic, even if it seemed more sedate than the most recent New York-based BEA. For me, of course, it was a nice, easy flight from Denver to LA, and only one hour adjustment to make -- easy-peasy. For my New York colleagues -- not so much. I had a very informative, useful fair, though, and am happy to share some of my impressions.
