Off to San Diego

This space has been pretty quiet lately as I’ve been preparing for interviews and writing applications and trying to get all that work done that I didn’t do during the semester. It’s not likely to pick up again as I’m off to San Diego today for the meetings of the American Economics Association. It’s a conference also known as the Allied Social Sciences Association Meetings, which makes my sociologist and anthropologist friends laugh out loud (because they’re not invited…shhhh!) It’s weird; it’s true. I don’t pretend to understand.

At any rate, if you’re interested in following along, there is a twitter handle for the meetings @ASSAmeeting, and a hashtag #ASSA2013. There’s even an app for that.

Sorry. I had to. But really, the app is super helpful. So much easier trying to put in meetings  and interviews on Pacific Time than subtracting hours from wherever I happened to be when the meeting was scheduled. It also has the full conference schedule.

If you’re around and want to grab coffee or a drink or a meal, drop me a line, tweet me, or call. I’m here all week, folks.
