Chicago, Chicago. It was my sweet home Chicago for all of a year, and admittedly that was back around the national bicentennial, but I still enjoy my visits. I’ve just learned to accept that the traffic jams are omnipresent, and to chill accordingly.
We drove in on Friday afternoon and left Wednesday morning, tired but content. As I knew would be the case, the folks who came to AEA Chicago were filled to the brim with awesome. We had a great time röcking out, groovin’ to the tunes, filling Fadó, wondering about Shreddies exchanges, and savoring the lunches. I’ve gotten my pictures onto Flickr in what is, for me, close to record time, and added them to the show’s photo pool. All with geocoding, natch. Gotta geocode.
If you want to know what other people thought of it, Jeffrey‘s got some links—perhaps understandably, Brain Freeze’s post is one of my favorites—and Technorati will be happy to point you to what everyone’s saying. I can tell you what I thought, though: fantastic. I can’t wait to do it again!
