Short version: it was great. They want me back.
Addendum: I'm so glad I wore the almost-never-used Pierre Cardin business suit I bought while in London in 98.
The first thing that happened when I caught up with James Hungerford (who invited me to speak) is I discover he's the organizer of the whole show.
Second thing that happened is he proceeds to introduce me to the other organizers and a half-dozen other felllows.
All thrilled that I've come to talk about spintronics.
All wearing business suits.
So I was verra, verra glad I was wearing mine.
So, on to today's big news. Tonight and tomorrow night are the two parts of the IRLM Crown Ball.
Two weeks ago, I sent the information off to Leigh Weimers, who writes the Society column in the SJ Mercury News.
Nothing. No response. Nada.
But this morning, there it is, a very nice column inch on the second page of the Local section.
You can read it online at http://www.mercurynews.com/mld/mercurynews/news/9808015.htm
And if you don't have plans, come to the Ball tomorrow night!
