Having wrapped up a whirlwind spring, in which I successfully got through the craziness of buying an apartment in NYC, got myself more or less moved into it, closed down my California office and shipped everything east, and attended a ton of conferences and meetings and gave a bunch of other talks — and mostly managed to keep things at work moving forward in the interstices — I’m now off on my summer adventure.
Like last summer, I’m on the road for quite a while, starting with a spate of bouncing from conference to conference and concluding with a nice long period of being still in Prague. Unlike last summer, however, I am staying in Europe for the entirety of the trip, and not bouncing back to the US until it’s over.
So this year’s schedule is a good bit less insane than last, and I expect it to be terrific fun:
- 18-22 June — Geneva, Switzerland; OAI 8
- 22-30 June — Göttingen, Germany; Cultures of Obsolescence
- 30 June – 3 July — London, England; JISC/OAPEN conference on Open Access Monographs.
- 3-31 July — Prague, Czech Republic; utterly, totally event-free.
And so far, so good, on all fronts; I arrived in Geneva this morning, hopped a fairly easy bus transfer to my hotel, had some breakfast and struggled to stay awake until my room became available, and then crashed for several hours. This afternoon, got a bit of work done. Tonight, an early dinner, a good night’s sleep (please please please), and on to OAI 8 tomorrow.
