I’m in Beijing and checked into the hotel. Extremely nice place. Complimentary broadband Internet.
Air China flight 984 from LAX ended up being delayed 12 hours due to mechanical problems. It’s a real bummer, since I was supposed to give a “Platform Overview” talk at the conference this morning, but I missed the entire first day. I’ve been rescheduled to speak tomorrow morning.
Ironically, as I cleared immigration, I heard over the loudspeaker that United Airlines flight 889 from SFO had just arrived.
