CEJ and Bathroom Robots

I, Robot . . . need to pee

I, Robot . . . need to pee

I attended CEJ’s 23rd Anniversary banquet last night at the convention center.  It was another great event from the folks responsible for Buffalo’s living wage legislation, but that’s not what I want to write about.

I want to talk about the Convention Center.  I’ve organized several events there in the past and have always been pleased with the result.  The people are great, and the food — at least the vegetarian food — is great.  If I could have all my meals catered by the Convention Center, I’d be a happy camper.

I don’t think it’s news to anyone that the place is brutally ugly, though.  That was reinforced for me by the sign on the men’s room, which is just comically ugly and spartan.  It looks like a robot graphic from an early-80s Atari game.  What was wrong with architects and designers in the 70s?
