Sleep in Seattle

That was last night. Our party flew into Seattle from Chicago and slept there last night. Today we drove to the Canadian city of Vancouver and joined the party at the Objectivist Center Summer Seminar. I think of it as ObjectiFest. I have a live broadband connection in my room, and life is good.

I got to meet Alexandra York, whose book, Crosspoints, I just finished, and I had fun talking with her about the book. She's quite personable and charming, and she explained to me some of the research she did for Crosspoints, which included dressing up as an apparent rich buyer and visiting galleries to see just how modern art gets sold!

Rhyme of the day:

I expect this ObjectiFest
To be one of the best.
