It's conference season!
First up, the Institut Astrophysique de Paris' Colloquium on the Nature of Dark Energy. So, in other words, work-related. Meeting with colleagues, discussion of our model, running some simulations... not very different from work in Cambridge, really, except for the backdrop of research talks all day long too. The corresponding shindig last year was quite fun, though the temptation to snooze during the afternoon sessions was fairly high.
Then off to the Libre Software Meeting in Bordeaux, where I get to give a presentation about SBCL. Fortunately, with a lot of help from wnewman, there are going to be some interesting things to talk about, both from the point of view of real users, and also from the point of pure computer science. The presentation slides will be available afterwards, for the eager hordes fascinated by lisp compiler technology (all two of you).
