Vegas again

Well, here I am back in Las Vegas for another big IBM event. The flight here was pretty uneventful, except that I was so early to the airport that I was able to get bumped up to a standby seat on an earlier flight to Dallas, giving me time for a relaxed (albeit crappy) lunch. When I arrived at the Venetian Hotel in Vegas, they didn’t have a reservation for me.

If you were unemployed, you’d be home now

It’s layoff day. I’m told that if I were one of the casualties, I’d have heard about it by now. That’s not stopping my stomach from knotting up. I’m also pre-worrying a little about the upcoming plane travel to Minnesota.
