I’m at the M for Montreal festival this week, ensconced in yet another hipster hotel where the walls in the rooms are painted black. That wouldn’t be so bad if there were more than two 40 watt lightbulbs to illuminate the place.
The WiFi is iffy–I’m piggybacking on another access point instead of the one that’s supposed to service my room–and the shower pressure is best described as being equivalent to a 76 year-old man with a prostate the size of a football. At least the bed is comfortable.
I’m moderating a couple of panels today, one on music and literature and the other on how to organize your digital music library. I’ll try to follow up later in the day–WiFi willing, of course.
Meanwhile, you need to check out this week’s Geeks&Beats podcast with me and Michael Hainesworth. Here are your show notes.
