In Beijing

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.
