- Why are all the interesting talks at 8 in the morning? And at the Marriott? Let’s send the space physicists over there instead, or reserve it as punishment for people who can’t have a technical conversation for more than 5 minutes that doesn’t involve post-perovskite.
- The wireless “access” is just sad. Don’t they understand that geophysicists need to download lots and lots of
pr0nsdata when they’re at professional conferences?
- If I said I was bored of Sumatra, how much face would I lose?
The Lorenz Lecture: Boolean Delay Equations as a novel form of chaos (neat!), and an odd amount of credulousness w.r.t. Keilis-Borok. My seismolab companion stared derisively at that one as well, so I feel like my instincts have been vindicated. Pretty pictures aside, I stand firm in my belief that chaos theory is no longer a suitable way to dazzle cute grad students at AGU.
ME!: I’ll be at my poster (T23B-0539, snuck in with the work on real geothermal resources, haha, suckers!) circa 2:30-3:30, if any Gentle Geophysical Readers want to test modern techniques of cute-grad-student-dazzling, or just hang out until the beer arrives.
