Good evening from Buffalo! I hope everyone has had a wonderful first day of the Congress. I spent most of my day writing, picking up my badge, running into old friends and I monitored the backchannel of the opening plenary from the Lobby Bar at the Statler while having a great discussion on places and community with fellow Southern urbanists. Many thanks to Storify, for giving me a great read of other people’s days. Check out some of my favorites here. Have fun and be safe tonight; see you bright and early tomorrow for another day of CNU.
