If you check the archives of this blog (which I know all of you do on a fairly regular basis), you’ll see that I haven’t posted anything in over two weeks. Those kind of blog hiatuses can’t be good for traffic, but I have a legitimate excuse: I was out of the country. Readers with a keen eye for international architecture will recognize the picture attached to this post. Those without, may not. Either way, I figure I should tell you that it’s one of the facades of Sagrada Familia, Antoni Gaudi’s best known unfinished church.
Why post a picture of this famous tourist spot? Because I was in Barcelona for the SMBE meeting last week. I met up with John Logsdon (among many other people), and apparently John Dennehy was as well. It was an excellent conference, as SMBE meetings usually are. My only complaint: too many sessions that I wanted to attend that were scheduled concurrently.
Anyway, I intend to blog about a couple talks that I attended that discussed some interesting published results. I may also blog about some other Barcelona/SMBE stuff if the spirit fills me.
