In Auckland, having traveled forward in time

So for me right now it's 9:40 am though in redmond its 2:40 pm. For me it is Aug 25 - for them it is Aug 24th.

In A Sumburned Country Bill Bryson talks charmingly about how there is no diet in the world that can make you lose your impact on the world as much as crossing the international dateline. In honor of that, I have eaten breakfast at the hotel, bought wireless, failed to sleep, and hope to straighten out some administrative snafus before talking to - er - 700+ students tomorrow about blogging.

Arrgh, must practice speech again.

Arrgh must practice speech again.



Sound check tonight.



Edit: PS No I'm not changing my blog time from Redmond.
