The American Chemical Society National Meeting In Philadelphia

I don't like writing about professional issues here so I will be brief.  I have been a member of the American Chemical Society since 1973 when I was a graduate student at the University of Rhode Island.  I started to go to the national meetings in the late 1980s when I became involved with the Chemical Information Division.  Over the years I have attended meetings in Chicago, New Orleans, Washington, Boston, and Philadelphia. It was nice to go to the seminars and to chat with my colleagues from other universities.  I had limited internet access during the convention since I don't own a laptop computer.  There was one computer in the hotel lobby available to guests which was usually busy.  There was an area in the convention center where I accessed the web a few times.
