I'm in Seattle for the next few days. The CALI conference is going on at the University of Washington Law School. With all of the recent moves and trips to and fro it is a bit disorienting being back in Seattle for the first time in more than a decade. I have to say, though, that if one were prone to living in the city that Seattle is definitely a place to consider. Actually I think Vancouver Washington and Vancouver B.C. would also be great places to consider. San Francisco (next week's trip) is better known for its hills than Seattle but the two are on par. The sponsors of the conference were kind enough to include an umbrella in the conference materials. This seems to be having the desired effect as it looks to be clear and sunny for the duration. The wireless hot-spot in the hotel says it will go away in a couple of days. Bummer. There is access at the conference site but it is limited in some ways (such as downloading large files).
