A Little More South by Fun

After a bunch of talks and panels (mostly about using technology for good) and a stroll around the Trade Show (see Instagram for the new sushi printer you are going to want), I took a spin (literally) in this immersive VR pod (complete with cold air blowing from above when you're virtually whisked up into the clouds). Such a cool experience!
I checked out the Bose house (to see if they had any giveaways that Brian might like). I liked the free ginger pineapple cocktail and the outdoor living decor.
I also swung by the Land 'O Lakes house and learned about the future of farming, yes, from inside this lettuce head.
After a few days of street truck food, I needed some yummy, healthy sushi, salmon teriyaki and vegetables, so I headed to Fukumoto. I had been before and it was just as good as I'd remembered.
After a talk about artificial intelligence (from an all-female panel) and one about virtual reality for social justice (also from a woman - woot!), I found myself a yummy grilled cheese for lunch.
When I got back to the main keynote stage, to get a good seat for the talk about quantum computing, I was geeking out at the panel before it. Half the cast of This Is Us was being interviewed along with the creator and executive producer, Dan Fogelman. I was trying to stay cool and not take too many photos but it was so neat to see Mandy Moore, Justin Hartley, and Milo Ventimiglia just chilling on stage.
I'd been walking by the DC Comics lot on my way to/from my hotel and finally had to stop in for a picture of Val Kilmer's Batman Forever batmobile. I know everyone has their favorite Batman movie, and this is mine (judge me if you must).
I also kept passing by this food truck called the "Angry Eggroll." I took the plunge with The Grasshopper (filled with caramelized garlic cashews and shredded carrots and cabbage). Totally worth the wait! One more day to go. Hope you're having a great week so far!
