Siggraph Logistics Meeting, Anaheim, May 2011.

Marriott just sent up a tray with a slice of carrot, pre-crumbled cheese, chocolate pudding and an edible Siggraph logo.

Rock n’ Roll baby.

(Staying at Disneyland for business meetings, especially *real* business meetings, is actually pretty sucky).
