Someone stole my poster during the night from the locked SSIT5 display at LSE. It’s got the link to my blog printed on it, so dear perpetrator, know this: I’ve made the trip to London to present that poster, and I spent a lot of time preparing it. Thanks to you I’ve missed the opportunity to display my work to the other academics here this morning. I wrote on the poster: ‘I’d love to get feedback, so please come talk to me if you find this interesting.’ That does not translate to ‘you can take this poster home with you!’ I hope it reappears upstairs before the afternoon’s PhD students’ session starts.

OK, why would *anyone* want to steal a poster? Unless they disagreed with you really strongly…

It turned out I wasn’t the only one whose poster was nicked. The organizer announced that ‘you should feel proud someone has found your work so interesting.’ I guess I would have said something similar. In the end I found my way to a Kinko’s and got them to print a new one, and got back in time to get feedback from people at the afternoon session. End of rant, but I find it disturbing that some LSE keyholder just walks away with a display of my work. This school is emphasizing the ethics of future managers after all.

hey – fun to meet you, however short..
sorry about your poster but great that you managed to get a new copy for the afternoon session – unfortunately the pints screamed at us at that point ;)
perhaps we’ll bump into one another at a later event.
