2007 AAI Convention pics

If you are expecting high quality, professional pics, think again. People most out of the way when you have a gigantic camera. When you are 5' tall and carry an old digital, people don't even see you when they stand in your shot, and don't bother to apologize. Especially not Ayaan's bodyguards!

these were the atheist symbols being voted on at the convention. personally, I hate them all.

Hey, it's the best I could do. I usually go on vacation without the camera, so this is a far cry more than I usually bring back.

Incidentally, for those of you that wanted to be there but couldn't, you can get streaming info at this link. It will be up for a limited time for a fee. I anticipate someone will post parts of it to YouTube eventually.
