Power Quality Conference 2005

When you go to trade show juggernauts like RSNA, its hard to take this thing seriously. The exhibit floor is small, the sessions seem to be about 50% infomercials for a particular product and 50% substance, and a lot of it is churning among insiders. I did make a few connections and get some good ideas – which are worthwhile.

I came in yesterday morning; was planning to stay two nights and leave, but I can not think of what to do locally; so I am gonna try to sneak out this evening. Yeah Southwest for having lots of direct flights to Hartford….if the travel gods are smiling I should make the 6:15 and be home by 8:00 pm.

On the plus side, yeah to Baltimore for doing the airport to downtown thing right. I jumped on the Light Rail ($1.60 except the ticket kiosk was down so it was free) at BWI and it dropped me right outside the conference or a few blocks from the hotel. The Hartford Courant needs a letter about that – we need “Scooty” (or whatever the heck Colin McEnroe was calling his light rail from BDL to downtown) to make Hartford accessible short of a $$$ cab ride, a bus, or renting a car.
