AMS-MAA JMM 2008 Liveblogging, day 1

I'm exhausted.

I'm completely exhausted.

And I just got through the first day.

However, I also managed to meet up with S from the university interested in me. We had a really nice chat, and I feel rather good about it.

Other things done today - listened to an interesting talk generalizing Koszul algebras based on the highest degree ring generator of the Ext algebra. Listened to bits and pieces of a talk on Koszul and Verdier duality. Saw Flatland - The Movie (with Martin Sheen playing the main character, Arthur Square).

I also chatted with Cliff Stoll - whose sales pitch for the Klein Bottles is immensely entertaining; NSA - who don't want me; Maplesoft - who are interested in me; Mathematica - who pointed me to their website; various e-Learning companies; and many many other exhibitors.

Also, got tired, hungry and WET. It's bloody raining here.
