On September 25th I’m departing for a whirlwind trip to Dusseldorf to meet certain well-known active Newtontalk.net community members there, then heading to Paris for the 28 and 29tth for the same reason. If anyone is in those areas and willing to meet up with me, let me know. I’ll also be heading back to the Bay Area on October 23rd until the 29th, and spending the 30th in Seattle. Not exactly a vacation, this is all the time I could afford. I also have connections in Vancouver and possibly Phoenix, and will be spending time in Calgary and New York very soon.
