Social Insect Socializing

Full day of talks today.

I set my smart-o-phone for a 6:30 am alarm, to have plenty of time to get up, make coffee, eat breakfast, then head over to the hotel for the pre-conference conference of the North American Section of the International Union for the Study of Social Insects (NAS-IUSSI).

I woke up at 7:20, in a panic because I was so late.

I made it to the first part of the meeting on time, but in my panic I forgot to bring my poster with me. So I had to miss an hour of talks to go back to the hotel and get it.

Other than that, it was wonderful to see so many friendly faces, old and new, and to hear about all the different kinds of questions people are asking and addressing in social insects.

It also makes me glad, though, to be doing a mixture of work in solitary and social insects. Working just with social insects is a bit too insular, methinks.

This statement is deliciously ironic. :)
