Why I’m Flying To Chicago In A Few Weeks

Mostly: To attend the Motorola press event. They’re likely to launch their sequels to the Moto X and Moto G phones, as well as the Moto 360 Android Wear watch.

Partly: To say hello to my Sun-Times editors and a couple of other Chicago friends.

At least 20%: To go to the Art Institute of Chicago and get photos of the Holsteins with “American Gothic,” “Nighthawks,” and “A Sunday on La Grande Jatte.”

The AIoC also has a 34-inch “Bacchante And Infant Faun.” I’ve never seen one of the smaller castings. If it’s out in the open (and against a wall or wedged into a corner) it’ll be neat to see this from new angles.
