AGU Blogging #3: Day 3 overview

December 17, 2008

Today was extremely hectic … but really fun.

The negative part of a meeting being in the same town that you live in is that it’s easier to get pulled back to work — when you go out of town, that’s it — you’re out of town. I actually had to go to work this morning for a meeting that really didn’t amount to anything. But, whatever.

I made it to the meeting by lunchtime and had a good lunch with a co-worker and a couple of researchers that we are collaborating with.

The poster session I was co-chairing was all afternoon and it was busy the whole time — it was well attended and all the presenters said they received some great feedback. I ended up getting into some good, in-depth discussions with almost all of the presenters.

Before I knew it, over four hours had passed! Time flies when you’re having fun.

The session officially ended but spilled over the time and several of us ended up sharing a few beers and continuing to discuss many of the topics of the session. An unfortunate consequence of this was that I missed the geoblogger meet-up that was planned … sucks. Hopefully, I will still have a chance to meet my blogging colleagues tomorrow or Friday.

    We missed you at the dinner! Even with the ridiculously tiny table they gave us.
    I don’t know who all is going to be here for how long (I do know that Kim leaves today), but I’m going to be here into Saturday.
