In Washington, DC for AAMC
Today I travelled to Washington, DC to attend one day of the AAMC (Association of American Medical Colleges) annual meeting. I had a chance to bump which ended up putting me in DC at 10:30 instead of 6:30. Still not sure if that was a great idea. I got a free ticket for later use and my later flight was 1st class, but it didn't give me time to sit down with my manager (who's also at AAMC) to look over some slides for a presentation we're doing on Monday.
As I look at the schedule, it's almost certain I won't actually get to see any of DC. Meetings start at 7am and go until 4pm, have to be on the shuttle to the airport at 6:30pm. Perhaps 2 hours is enough time to go to the Dupont Circle area and have dinner (have two recommendations).
The meetings I'm here for are centered around some collaboration work we're doing on virtual patients with a few other schools. Perhaps I'll write about that later.
Note: To complicate things further, today is the deadline for the MySQL User's Conference call for papers. I have several ideas that I've been working on, need to get them in.
