    Commutative vs. Associative

    First day in LA before PDC

    7:30 flight from SEA-TAC, at least a short one to LA. I was a late registrant to the event, thus could not find a place in one of the conference hotels. I was quite hopeless to find a place to stay at, and then I found this hotel. It is in a neighborhood...

    This morning, I flew out to LA for PDC. The plane landed around 12:15PM, nice and early. The ride to the hotel was mostly uneventful until we got to downtown and I noticed all the traffic lights were flashing red and drivers were confused at every major...
