This afternoon I’l fly down to Newport Beach for the 2008 meeting of the Larry L. Hillblom Foundation, the kind people who have paid my salary for the past three years. To the extent that it’s possible, I’ll be liveblogging the conference, so watch this space for developments. In the meantime, feel free to check out my notes from last year’s meeting (1 2 3).

If you’re attending the meeting, keep a lookout for this disreputable character, and be sure to introduce yourself and say hi. I’ll be giving a talk about our lab group’s work on Wednesday morning…

…which I should write.
