Vendor lunch! K. from Elsevier took me to the steak place next to the convention center that exists for people like her to take people like me to lunch. I got the signature salad or whatever it was called because it was served on a bed of arugula. Friends, that is not arugula. But still, it was free, and K. was energetic and really interested in telling me about herself, and I did learn about one new service that sounds relevant to us, and I’d love for her to come show me how to make one of the other databases work in a way that makes it worth it. I passed on dessert and coffee. I had to get back to the booth.
