I late-registered since I wasn’t sure I was even going until a week prior. My ID didn’t have my school information, and I wanted to represent, so during my lunch break on Thursday I used the wifi at the Renaissance to call up some reference pictures and sketched some MU insignias on my pass:
It got a few extended looks when people checked my ID!
Speaking of wifi, downtown St. Louis has free wifi. The signal is spotty in places, but it works pretty well ironically in the outdoors. I spent a lot of time walking around sweeping my iPod around like a tricorder looking for a signal. Hotel wifi cost $10 a night per device so I actually did most of my emailing and websurfing around the convention area between talks.
