Waking Up In New Zealand
It’s 10a in Wellington.
I miss my family, I worry often about whether runs on banks will start before I get home (excessive, yes, but people will behave in unexpected ways to threats… “buy gold” is being turned into the “build bomb shelters in your yard” by the extremist right… and this group is willing to drop the bomb on their own neighbors), and I’m already sad that I only have one more day on this wonderful country.
A stop at the local multiplex turned up a list of movies that was almost indistinguishable from the multiplex at home… surrounded by a food court. (Maybe I’m really in Toronto!)
Nice dinner with the parade of “webmasters” down here with me, though I am reminded that I work a different side of the street than the “geek sites.” I’m also old and remember the good old bad old days of the web from a different perspective, for better or worse.
We’re here to see Tintin stuff… looking forward to it. As it turns out, only AICN’s Quint was at ComicCon to see that Tintin event, so it will be fresh to most of us. And it won’t, we’re told, just be a repeat of that material.
More to come…
