The grand SICB roundup

Apologies for being MIA over the past day – the hotel’s wifi was acting up and I basically decided to go a day without connectivity. I’m now happily at home after thoroughly enjoying my SICB experience – science, beer, and discussion makes for a good four days. I’ll hopefully get some more SICB-inspired posts up over the next few days.

Special thanks have to go to Jim and Kat Lippard for putting up with us last night. We had a wonderful evening of discussion and I got to meet Brent Rasmussen whom I hadn’t even realized was living nearby. The above photo is of (left to right) Jim, Brent, GrrlScientist, PZ, and I, all looking very relaxed. Both PZ and Brent riff
about the evening on their respective blogs, though I will note that, since Brent describes me as a “pretty cool Prof”, I will now be hiring him to handle all my publicity!

    Should I explain to everyone that the reason you’re leaning in towards me is nothing personal, it’s just that appeasers lack a spine?

    Heh! I thought I was just being drawn to your magnetic personality.

    Is that your posse?

    A science posse, pretty cool.

    Didn’t you hear? I don’t have a personality, so that excuse won’t hold up.

    You notice how P.Z. is in front, and we’re all standing one rank behind him as if we’re his backup singers?

    Doo-wop, indeed. 😉
