Here's a quick update. I was down at a nice reception at the hotel for the conference speakers when a door is violently thrown open and a guys goes running through and down the hall. Following closely behind was a security guard. I immediately took off running after both of them. We tore down a long hallway and out the door of the hotel into the street. I had caught up to the security guard, but the thief had put a little distance between himself and the guard. The guard gave up the chase.
The crook (definitely not representative of the amazingly generous people here in Holland) had attempted to steal one of the computers we have at the conference. Fortunately, it was tethered with a security device, and the theft was not successful. My adrenaline was juiced. I was ready to throw down.
Here's a quick video I took of the security guard-a very nice man. He said, "Just doing my job."
