Most of the other people from my lab arrived yesterday for SIGGRAPH. After a very nice dinner nearby we wandered around and checked out a few places including Granville street which I'd heard was an interesting sight on a Saturday night. I'm still liking Vancouver a lot, though not liking the food prices.
There was a fireworks competition last night. Even though one of us had a a corner full window room on the 30th floor, another high rise blocked much of the view.
