Whisky from EIE 11

There's a backlog of blog posts ..

During the week of EIE13, unfinished business from EIE11 resolved. As part of the 'thankyou for speaking' I'd been given a bottle of whisky; which created a dilemma - when I travel I don't check bags, and I was leaving Edinburgh to go back to California. Colin Adams was kind enough to say "We'll keep it for you"


Accordingly, when I coincided with Colin going up in the elevator in the Appleton Tower, I reminded him about the neglected whisky. He was able to say "come over later in the week and we will find it for you". The bottle found a good home as a house warming present for my brother, I tasted the whisky, and Informatics Ventures kept its promise. All excellent things.
