Lots of talks this weekend and lots of early morning flights. Just did a talk at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton (which is like a university with no students, and host to Albert Einstein, John von Neumann, Kurt GÃ¶del andÂ J. Robert Oppenheimer)
I spoke as part of the Cuisine & Culture lecture series which is usually by culinary historians and anthropologists. About 75 people (which they said was a good showing). They had yummy duck spring rolls and dim summy things for the cocktail party.
I saw my camp counselors, who I hadn’t seen in like 15 years or so: Noah Zatz and Jessica Catellino, now both professors and visiting scholars in Princeton (one at the Institute, one at the University).
I also sat next to someone at dinner who said he’d been to a wedding where Bill Gates had served as “second usher.”
