I've been in New York City for most of the past week. I was hoping to be in touch, but the hotel I was staying at had wi-fi rather than ethernet so I was incommunicado for the trip.
The best part of the trip was meeting with some forum members - especially bmonroney, Andy Brick and FrankS. The main purpose of the trip was mostly important business meetings and negotiations. Aside from business, there was time to do other enjoyable things.
A highlight of the trip was hearing Brian (bmonroney) and his band play at Irving Plaza (and having some wonderful pizza and zeppolis). Also a visit with Wendy Carlos who showed me her studio and played a number of songs on her specially-built keyboard rig. We later attended an AES talk at the New School about using optical scanning technology to preserve and restore old recordings (like 78 records and wax cylinders). In addition I met with a few schools and universities in New York that use GPO. And also had time for a concert at Carnegie Hall. It was a wonderful and very worthwhile trip.
Missed being among my friends on the forum. Did I miss much on the forum or chat while I was away?
Glad to be back,
