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.
