Back to Philadelphia
You know, on reflection, one of the things that probably has me feeling strange about being in Philadelphia for this conference is that it was here that I attended my first ACS national meeting. That was August of 1984, when I was just about to start my second year in graduate school. For all I know, I attended a session in this same Sheraton. All these hotel ballrooms look pretty much the same.
Twenty-six years ago! If I sit here and try to figure out how that happened, I won't have time to take any notes here in 2010. There were slide projectors pointed at the screens back then, not LCDs, and there sure weren't any laptops to be seen. But the rows of chairs under the gaudy chandeliers, those you could superimpose on 1984 with no change at all.
