Canadian Venture Forum, & Shrinkage

I’m heading up to Toronto from La Jolla tomorrow to give a talk at the Canadian Venture Forum. It’s currently 22 C here in La Jolla, while it’s apparently going to be around -20 C (or colder with windchill) when I land late tomorrow in Toronto, Canada. Were I made of steel — assuming, in other words, a linear expansion coefficient of around 11×10-6 — that would mean I’m going to be  be around 1mm shorter or so on landing.

Unnerving thought, but there’s shrinkage for you.


  1. You’ve over-analyzed it… just know that it will be f…ing cold.
