I've made it to the hotel, and have checked out the convention center. Registration is open in Hall A for pre-registered members. The Hall C ConCourse is in the process of being set up, and the tech crew is getting ready to do some complicated thing involving lights in the Auditorium. The facade of The Mended Drum is constructed but not yet decorated. (Things will look very different by Thursday.) But in the meantime, I flopped on a couch with some nice people taking a brief moment of rest in the midst of setup frenzies.
