Demographics

A note on demographics.

Today, I attended two 'business' meetings in which upcoming multi-national, large-scale projects were discussed and planning strategies brainstormed.

The first meeting:
Of 52 people, 9 were women and I estimated that only 10 could possibly be under 40.

Of the 9 women, two played significant roles, one facilitating the meeting and one heading up one of the four work groups.

The second meeting:
Of 23 people, 3 were women and I estimated that only 6 could possibly be under 40.


I went back for a nap at 11 AM and woke up at around 3, finally feeling refreshed. Considering the 8 hour time difference, I woke up at around 7 AM Boulder time. Jet lag, still.

The sun persists, and dinner lingers in the near future. A walk across town to
Indian food. Is it okay to have Indian food in Germany? I had a sausage for lunch, anyway. It was long and the bun was short. The sausage was about twice as long, actually, as a brat/sausage from the States, and the bun was about 70% of the length of a normal hot dog bun. It was just something to hold the sausuage in, really. Cool.

For breakfast, both yesterday and today, a chocolate-filled croissant on the way to the conference.
