Meetup in Phoenix

As PZ announced earlier today (as did GrrlScientist), we’ve firmed up our meetup plans for the SICB conference. Friday 6th around 6pm, we’ll be meeting at Seamus McCaffreys fairly close to the conference hotel. Contrary to PZ’s suggestion, I wont be forcing anyone to drink Guinness (the drink is only barely drinkable here in the…

I’ve noted before that the Society for Integrative and Comparative Biology (SICB) will be meeting in Phoenix next week and also that PZ, Grrl Scientist, and I will be participating in a media workshop on blogging.

Anyone who is anyone is here. Interestingly, I haven’t been able to locate any of…

Greetings from Vancouver

It the first morning of the HSS meeting here in Vancouver and as usual I spent yesterday evening reconnecting with people. Highlight was, of course, meeting Janet, John, David and Ben for cocktails. There will be pictures, I promise you. My morning is full – indeed I have to head to a session on science…

Scampering away

Later on this week, I’m off to the History of Science Society meeting in Vancouver. The meeting is held with the Philosophy of Science Association so I’ll get…
