Last day

Last day of the conference and I'm wondering why SWALL is addicted to 7:30 breakfasts. No matter, it should be a good early morning presentation. Sabrina and Barbara are doing a program on search engines beyond Google and Yahoo! I'll either post a summary after or when I get back home.

The Harry Ransom Center was a great treat, I loved seeing the old books. I had forgotten than the Muslim books from centuries ago were beautifully illustrated with vivid colors. It was also pretty wild seeing an actual Guetenberg Bible, as well as the dictaing equipment that Erle Stanley Gardner used when he was writing his 80 some odd Perry Mason novels.

It is very cool this morning (54 degrees), a nice change from the other mornings.
