Hi, from Boston. The ACS convention is going great. I've learned a lot of things. For now I am going to stick with Chemistry. In a future post I will delve into the local microbrews (I've hit two so far).
So... Chemistry. This is what I did during the last two days.
On Sunday, I attended a number of lectures on the Chemistry of Art and Forensic Chemistry as they relate to Chemical Education. These were mostly great. Especially my talk :)
In the evening I attended the poster talks and drank as much free beer as I could handle in 2 hours. I drank a lot of Heinekin, but I also visited with a number of presenters.
This morning, I got out of bed to sit in some workshops about Spartan from Wavefunction. Then I sat in a few more lecture before heading back to the hotel for a nap that was interrupted by a weird nightmare (of afternoonmare). The 50 minute nap became 10 minutes.
Anyways, I went to a brewpub for supper (details to come) and then the ACS poster talk (SciMix). It was illuminating.
I met a few friends from Holland in the hotel bar tonight and had few drinks.
Now, I am ready for bed.
I will try to post more about the two brewpubs I have visited so far tomorrow. I hope to visit one more tomorrow.
Stay tuned. More to come.
