Mini-Blogger convention at ASM 2007
I promise I'll write something up on Wednesday's talks, but that would require too much thinking and it's getting late here. Instead, I'll just show this picture demonstrating that I've finally joined the cool blogging world for real. Larry Moran organized a dinner for bloggers attending ASM and invited me as well as other (mostly more established) bloggers. Pictured are (L to R), Larry Moran (Sandwalk), Mona (Science Notes), Andrew Staroscik (Mixotrophy), John Logsdon (Sex, genes and evolution), and Tara Smith (Aetiology). Not pictured are Eva (Eastern Blot) and Chris Condayan, the ASM public outreach manager who later interviewed and filmed us for a feature on science blogging. For some reason (either out of creativity or alcohol consumption) Chris filmed me while having me stand in a phone booth. He's going to edit the interviews into something short and interesting and I'll post a link when it is available (assuming it isn't too embarrassing).
