Well Hello There Country Bumpkin

I'm feeling like such a rube, a hick, and a hayseed.

This evening I've been looking through the options for the NSTA conference in Boston later this month, and I'm feeling completely overwhelmed. During any given hour there are nearly 200 different presentations happening. They're located all over the place: Renaissance Hotel, Westin Hotel, Convention Center, and the Seaport World Trade Center. I have no idea where these venues are in relation to one another. Is it walking distance, does it require a subway, shuttle, or cab ride, are they directly adjacent or halfway across town from one another? Which ones are going to have space, which will be filled to capacity, which will be interesting, which ones are lame, which ones are appropriate?

I'm trying to put together a tentative schedule, but it's taking forever due to the sheer number of offerings. Collapse )
