Lots of good talks today. From the point of view of a US engineer, it was an especially interesting day. Why? Because most of the day was taken up by representatives from each of the non-US properties talking about what they've been up to, problems they're having, and so on.

We got to hear from:

  • Australia
  • China
  • Europe
  • Hong Kong
  • Japan
  • Korea
  • Latin America
  • Singapore
  • Taiwan (Kimo)

After the formal presentations were over, a group of us headed out in the rain to search for dinner. We found excellent food. And then managed to wind up in a British pub. Don't ask.

Are you doing "actual work", or are you not doing anything besides "eating"? :-)

When we were visiting eGroups Japan, we asked the locals to take us to a bar... they took us to Roppongi (ie English-Town) and a Irish pub. It wasn't quite what we had in mine...
