In Auckland, having traveled forward in time


So for me right now it’s 9:40 am though in redmond its 2:40 pm. For me it is Aug 25 – for them it is Aug 24th.


In A Sumburned Country Bill Bryson talks charmingly about how there is no diet in the world that can make you lose your impact on the world as much as crossing the international dateline. In honor of that, I have eaten breakfast at the hotel, bought wireless, failed to sleep, and hope to straighten out some administrative snafus before talking to – er – 700+ students tomorrow about blogging.


Arrgh, must practice speech again.

Edit: PS No I’m not changing my blog time from Redmond.

    Best of luck in Auckland Betsy 🙂

    Once you get to Queensland for the Aussie TechEd you’ll be travelling "backwards in time" again 😛

    (Timezone difference between Auckland and Queensland is 2 hours the last I checked… So if you posted at 9:40am in Auckland, it’d be 7:40am in Queensland.).
