Each year since 2009, the National Bureau of Asian Research (NBR) hosts the Pacific Energy Summit, an invitation-only event that “convenes leaders from government, business, and research to explore innovative solutions to the dual challenges of rising energy demand and climate change.

Things aren't really back to normal yet here in Boston. My office was open today, but the streets on two sides of the building are closed. I went to a new café for lunch because all my favorites are still shut. My friends who live right at the site of the second bomb - whose apartment a bunch of us were in at the time of Monday's events - are still staying with friends. The streets around my office, a block from Copley Square, are crowded by oddly quiet.
