The Great City of Boston and SIGGRAPH 2006
Headed up to Boston the first week of August for SIGGRAPH. My hotel was about 30 minutes from the convention center by bus so I got to see quite a bit of the city. I also got a chance to catch up with some good friends from graduate school who were spending time visiting in the north end of Boston called Little Italy. My reaction to Boston: I LOVED IT!! truly a great, beautiful city, people seemed very genuine and I can understand why people like it there so much. The biggest surprise to me was it didn’t have this ‘huge mega-city’ feel I expected. Instead, forgetting for a moment about a heatwave, it was a very walkable city with great food and great people.
