shorter days at ESRI UC

An observation: it seems to me that the days here at the ESRI user conference are slightly shorter this year compared to years past. Lunch breaks are longer, the last sessions end earlier and breaks are longer as well. This is a welcomed change I think as before it could seem like the days were very long, it was tough to sprint to lunch and back and attendees were burning out by Wednesday evening. Cramming all the great sessions into a slightly shorter day is challenging though as once again there were 3 sessions that I really wanted to hit this morning at 8:30... flip a coin I guess. The days may be shorter (slightly) but that's just led to longer nights for many!
