the astronomers are coming!!

next week austin hosts the 211th american astronomical society meeting. i'm super excited... and a bit anxious. in addition to the typical socializing, shenanigans, science, and sight seeing, i'll be giving a talk describing my dissertation research, trying to get some insightful research ideas, and schmoozing with people hiring post-docs!

for those who will be in austin, there is an official blogger meet-up tuesday night with the usual suspects: phil plait of bad astronomy and fraser cain of universe today. i'll show up at the iron cactus around 9pm to enjoy a margarita and good conversation.

look for exciting astronomy news revealed to the world all next week!
