Tomorrow I’m off to DAC! I’ll be meeting Lisbeth and Susana at Kastrup and we’re flying together to Tokyo, where we’ll be met by Lisbeth’s Japanese friends. A couple of days later we’ll continue to Melbourne.

I blogged an impressive 39 words from DAC 2001. I suppose Torill’s position as official conference blogger might rub off and kind of inspire me. Perhaps.

I’ve interpreted this as interest and a need to understand – but yesterday, Eirik Solheim said that every time […]
