In San Francisco and on a new session

IN SAN FRANCISCO. More tomorrow.

UPDATE: Okay, one more thing before I turn in. At the last minute I've been co-opted into this session for tomorrow because of a cancellation. Note that the time has changed from 4:00-5:30 to 1:00-2:30. I don't have a paper topic, so presumably I'll be dispensing my wisdom extemporaneously.
