Someone actually said this in a talk today. And he was not kidding about it.

Other notables from that talk:

* FAPP -- 'For All Practical Purposes' -- I think this is probably my new favorite acronym. Maybe not. But it was amusing in any event.

Mind has been very busy lately, and internet connection very scarce. I am at the Vision Sciences Society annual conference in Sarasota, FL. The location is great (yay Gulf-coast beaches and Key Lime Pie ice cream!), the conference size ideal... meaning that it's big enough that there are 'dead spots' -- times where there isn't anything to see that I find terribly interesting, so I don't feel guilty about spending a couple hours on the beach, but small enough that you get to know people and see and do a lot.

Also it tends to attract a lot of psychophysics/perception people, which is a much better match for me and my research interests than ARVO was last year (ARVO having been huge and overwhelming and predominantly biological/clinical and so on).

I was supposed to be off the Internet almost 20 minutes ago. Time to go find people and see what tonight holds!
