Day 2 of the Conference
Well, one thing has become abundantly clear. I’m too old for hard-core partying. I’m completely wiped out today, and I wasn’t even at the cigar party.
One funny thing I wanted to mention is that I listened to a talk yesterday where the speaker argued that the TV show Girls is a lot more feminist than Sex and the City. To me, they are both deeply un-feminist but Girls isn’t even fun, unlike S&C. Again, it probably is an age thing but I found Girls to be entirely incomprehensible and couldn’t watch more than an episode.
This was the only bizarre talk I have heard so far, though. The rest of the talks have been very good. Some of the presenters are very talented speakers and I didn’t even get distracted, which I always do when speakers stare at their papers and drone on.
I’m speaking today and chairing a session with some very cool people in it.
