Here are some things I've learnt so far:
- Physics is our feared and admired
- I'd be glad to have half as much energy as Ed Lazowska when I get to his level.
- The CRA continues to be truly awesome
- I feel like I'm in an episode of the West Wing sometimes.
- The budget process seems far more structured and less crisis-ridden than the media makes it out to be.
And for all other details of the meeting, I will refer you to the Chatham House Rule.
