AES 2012 Aftersharks

Now that I’ve gotten your attention with that cringeworthy pun in the title, I’d like to put up a quick post on my overall thoughts on AES 2012 and the host city.  This took a couple days due to a cancelled flight in Philadelphia and…

AES 2012: Day 4 Highlights

The last day of AES talks wrapped up today.  It’s always a little melancholy to see this conference end, but one must get back to real life sometime.  Here are the highlights from Day 4.

AES 2012: Day 3 Highlights

Lots of cool talks today as this conference continues to be very good at keeping me busy.  Check below the jump for the rundown on what I found interesting.

AES 2012: Day 2 Highlights

What a busy day.  I’ve only got a little bit of time to get this up before I have to head over to the poster session, and I saw a lot of very good talks today.  Keep following #AES2012 on Twitter to keep up with…

Summer of the Shark: Back to the Pamlico

Tuesday saw Evan, Andrea, and I head back to the Pamlico River to cover it with the longline (you can see why it was missing last time here) in my brave/foolish attempt to see if there are any sharks in the Pamlico Sound.  Weather-wise, we…

New England Great Whites to be Wrangled

I haven’t written about New England great whites here in a while, though I do chime in about new sightings and info on Twitter.  However, it looks like the sharks of the East Coast are attracting attention from more than just me.  It looks like…

Shark Week 2012 Preview

It’s getting to be that time of year again.  Shark Week, the seven-day Super Bowl for shark nerds and casual viewers alike, is celebrating its 25th year this summer.  This year it runs a little later than usual (probably to avoid conflicting with that little…
