Your humble narrator is currently in the Great State of Rhode Island after a detour to the Jersey Shore to visit the Hot Girlfriend. I’ll be spending time with some friends until Wednesday, when the Joint Meeting of Ichthyologists and Herpetologists gets underway. I’ll be attempting to provide regular updates from the conference (including my own poster presentation) and may try my hand at some live blogging (if I have the gumption to drag my laptop to a lot of talks). I’m looking forward to meeting my fellow shark people and reconnecting with some old friends and advisors. If you’re attending the conference, I’ll see you there.
