Due to a very favourable chain of events which I can only liken to divine intervention, I find myself in the U.S. right now.  I flew to the U.S. from New Zealand a little over a week ago.  I will be attending the American Intellectual Property Law Association (AIPLA) annual meeting this week in the Washington, D.C. area.  Please feel free to reach out if you happen to see me.  I will be in the U.S. until 24 November, when I fly to London for a few days enroute back to New Zealand.
