Beers in Boston, Words in Wollongong

I’m off to Boston tomorrow (Wednesday) for the National Bureau of Economic Research’s economics of education program meetings. Alas, the weather in Boston seems to be just as cold as in Canberra, but if friends old and new are up for a cleansing ale, I’ll be at Grendel’s Den in Harvard Square from 5.30pm on Friday.

I’ll be flying back into Sydney next Tuesday morning, and driving straight down to the University of Wollongong to present at the Legal Intersections Research Centre seminar at lunchtime on May 2. So if folks in the ‘Gong are interested in school productivity, or just want to see whether someone who’s got off a 24-hour flight can string a sentence together, feel free to come along.

    Tough indeed … Boston is actually in the middle of a most luscious spring. Magnolia and cherry trees in full bloom. Other trees pushing out little, lime green leaves. Tulips and daffodils everywhere. Beautiful blue skies. Ah, and the delicious scent of end of semester!

    As a follow-up to your earlier post on airplane seating, you may like to read this article on the plane:

    Or not, if you are stuck back in Cattle.

  4. ah, the joys of an appointment at RSSS…

    Tanya, that article actually kept me sane in cattle. “It could be worse, I could be standing…..”

    Hah! Yes, I’m sure QANTAS or United would like to make you think that you are lucky to have your seat. Perhaps, the next time Singapore or another airline dares to question the cosy Pacific deal, we’ll see QANTAS bring up the possibility of no seats!!
