gridlore: Doug looking off camera with a grin (Me - Desk)
Thursday was a bit odd. As can be expected things got off to a rocky start with most of the expo space not being redy on time. I had planned on attending two panels, but one turned in to a shouting match and the other was canceled. I just wandered around until [livejournal.com profile] grimmwire found me. We chatted for a bit and went our separate ways.Later on in the evening, [livejournal.com profile] kshandra, [livejournal.com profile] grimmwire, [livejournal.com profile] fearsclave, and I went out to dinner.

We chose Fourquet Fourchette. Service was frankly terrible, but we found out that they were recovering from a massive lunch service. The food, once it arrived, was fabulous. Combined with great conversation and good atmosphere, a good time out ws had by all.

Today my plans revolved around two panels. There was a panel on legal systems that turned out to be very interesting, and the came Paul Krugman's talk on going from SF Reader to Economist. He's a brilliant speaker, explaining complex concepts in easily grasped terms and showing good gasp of comedic timing. The talk was packed to the point that at one point the lights shut off due to the press around the doors. Krugman made a joke of it. He had announced that he had a hard time limit due to a flight, but a question did cover his paper on interstellar trade, and I waved my copy. At the end, I shot up to the table and asked for an autograph. I got it.

I GOT PAUL KRUGMAN'S AUTOGRAPH!!!!

From everything I've heard, he signed exactly two autographs at Anticipation.


Glee.

Tonight is the ghostwalk, then I'm going to head over to the Delta for the parties.
