A fine time in Morris

#MSOC is off to a great start — we had the first talk this evening (OK, it was me, ho hum), and I was impressed: we got a good crowd of people, and most importantly, they weren’t just the usual science faculty and students I see every day, but we actually succeeded in drawing in people from the local community and region. Yay, student organizers done good!

We had a good dinner with Neil Shubin, Marco Peloso, Dan Demetriou, and a gaggle of the student organizers at the local Italian place tonight. Tomorrow, more talks! It’s not too late to join us!

    Looks like they’re all joyfully anticipating the first course, of delicious boiled baby.

    We appear somewhat demographically challenged, do we not?

    I agree that the conference is off to a great start! Seeing the city folks drive to the rural area for a conference is pleasantly strange. The locals are used to hopping into a car and driving three hours to get to the Twin Cities for conferences. A big thanks to the organizers and supporters!

    No, the upper midwest is all white guys, so it’s entirely representative.

    Except for Tracey Anderson in that photo, and Sameeksha just offscreen.
