I just arrived in New York for the Personal Democracy Forum conference tomorrow. I’m staying at Cosmopolitan Hotel, which is very close to the conference, reasonably priced (for New York) and had good reviews on Tripadvisor.

It’s 4:44 am back home, 10:44 pm New York time, so time to try out that little bed up under the ceiling…
