ISIR blog #15 NOT-live - reality check

The reality of live blogging caught up with me today. I started off with good intentions here at the ISIR conference. I had written a considerable amount on a bunch of papers presented during an intelligence/gender difference symposium and the wifi signal from the hotel kept dying. Whenever it died, when I reconnected, I often found the text I had written as unuseable. I encountered a bunch of "html code" errors when I tried to save and post. After reconstructing everything from scratch a third time, and again having the same problem, I capitulated.

Lesson learned. Wifi live blogging has a large error term. A direct connection would seem to be desirable. I've not decided if I will try again tomorrow during the last day of the conference. We shall see.

This has been interesting.
