Andre in Atlanta: Prologue
My name is AndrÈ Nantel and I am an alcoholic.
Oups! Sorry, wrong blog.
My name is AndrÈ Nantel, I am the city captain for Metroblogging Montreal and the creator of Digital Apoptosis. In “real life” I am a biologist working in the fields of fungal genomics and cancer. From Sunday until Thursday, I will be in town as a guest of the American Society for Microbiology who are having their general meeting in the Georgia World Congress Center.
While I’m here, I might as well do some guest-blogging. I’m sending out this first entry a bit early in order to get some suggestions. It is a big conference and, at best, I will only have two or three half-days and a couple of evenings in which to walk around and to take pwetty pictures.
This will not be my first visit to Atlanta, in fact I have lived in Decatur for a year while my dad was doing his M.Sc. at Emory. Unfortunately I can’t remember much of it since the years were 1966-7 and most of my time was spent learning how to walk, talk and chew solid food. It might be better that way since the only things that my mom remembers from those years are a tornado warning, the race riots and the time she caught me playing with a Black Widow.
Hopefully this time, I will bring back some better memories.
