I just went to the convention center on my lunch hour and grabbed my badge from Will Call.  They run a very tight operation there.  Line is long but moves very quickly.  It was nice to see the convention center full of life.  I've been making an increasing number of trips there in the past few weeks and noting its desolate, cavernous nature.

I feel like a guy who traveled back in time before a momentous, but non-tragic, historical event and waited around for history to catch up.
