I'm juggling the Amylin Pharmaceuticals proxy fight, then ASCO (American Society of Clinical Oncology), then the Biogen Idec shareholder meetingand then the ADA (American Diabetes Association) meeting all within a week-and-a-half.
So, I didn't want to travel from New York to San Diego for the AMLN meeting, then back east to Orlando for ASCO, then to Cambridge for BIIB and then down to New Orleans for ADA. Something had to give and, as much as I love SoCal, I cut out the Amylin trip. Besides, I figured I could cover the shareholder meeting by simply going on the internet listening to/watching the webcast. No worries.
I was wrong.
