I’m just wrapping up a quick trip to London, where I attended the annual UbiComp conference. Such a treat that several of the major conferences are located in Europe this year, while I am as well.
Astonishingly, I have not been to London for more than 40 years! Hard to believe it, but my one and only prior visit was during a family trip the last time I lived in Europe. London has changed a bit since then… but I see they still have the iconic phone booths.
As I strolled by some of the major London landmarks – snapping photos of Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, and Imperial College London – I was sad that I did not have more time to stop and explore. The conference schedule is packed with interesting talks and networking opportunities, so I’ll just have to return some other time and do the tourist thing. Fortunately, I’ll be back in two weeks for a Dartmouth event and hopefully will have more time to explore during that visit.
