Breaking News: PLoS ONE Managing Editor visits the Chapel Hill office!

Yup, Chris Surridge, Managing Editor of PLoS ONE (and the author of the legendary comment) swung by the Chapel Hill office last night. Since my initial stint was in the San Francisco office, and Chris is working in the Cambridge UK office, this was the first time we met in person. Much fun was had by all. The pictorial story under the fold:

After I picked Chris up from the airport and let him drop his stuff off at myplace, we went to my office in the wonderful La Vita Dolce, where Chris went wild with the camera taking pictures of me sitting at my table pretending to work:

Then we went to Town Hall Grill for dinner - the place where we have the Friday dinner at the Science Blogging Conference. We just heard that they quit doing the karaoke on Fridays, but perhaps we can get it back just for that one night!

Regarding the time-zone difference, Chris was ready to go to sleep, but first he had to pose with Orange Julius:

In the morning, we had tea, served in Scienceblogs mugs, of course:

Then, Chris, my wife and I went to Weaver Street Market in Carrboro for breakfast, where Catharine took these silly pictures of us:

We had to end the visit back at the office, with yet another delicious latte at La Vita Dolce:

Since I came back from California, I've been trying to get Time Warner to remove one of the firewalls from my cable connection so I can get into the belly of the beast of PLoS. The wifi in the apartment complex is pitiful. I also tried at Town Hall Grill, but the loading of every page was very…
You must have noticed that there wasn't too much effort on this blog over the past couple of weeks (except for the elaborate and too successful April Fools hoax). I've just been so busy lately. So, here is a quick recap, and some pictures. Back on March 21, I went to Duke University to participate…
OK, so a bunch of us sciencebloggers went to New York City this weekend. This is something that we were trying to do for almost a year now. Sure, many of us Sciblings have met one-on-one on occasion, but this was an opportunity to get many of us together all in the same place at the same time, to…
