See you at AAS: Come the Real, Come the Virtual!

I have the internets and I’m not afraid to use them! Today we premiered our new wireless rig – 2 wireless 3G verizon cards and 2 netgear 3G -> wireless routers, and while we have kinks left to work out, I feel okay saying we are going to stream our little hearts out at this meeting in hopes that you can consume the best of what this meeting has to offer.

Tomorrow (well, technically today), I’m going to be at the National Zoo in Washington DC doing outreach to animals in Amazonia (and hopefully to a few humans too – This could include you!) If you’re in DC, come on by! Activities start at noon, and details can be found on the AstroZone website.

On Monday night, at 6:30pm, Brian B. Schwartz will be talking on Science as Performance. Wednesday night there will be a Tweetup / Meetup at a location to be announced. And online we will have a slew of events on Second Life...
