We're under way

Notice that under way is two words. Thanks, AP Stylebook.
As we sat at the registration desk this morning, Bill Connolly and I talked about how in some ways, early on the first morning is the most exciting part of the conference. Everyone's talkative and excited to see old friends and meet new ones. We put faces with names. And even those of us who had to get up extra early in the wrong time zone manage to be somewhat personable.
The opening general session went well, I thought. The headline contest winners were a hit, the scholarship winners were the great prospects we've come to expect, and very few people had questions to ask. We still need to work on that last one.

Ah, but L.A. Times style is "underway" in all uses. It's why I avoided saying that in my early-morning post. :-)
