After months of preparation, the Evolution meetings start this evening, with a reception followed by Eugenie Scott's lecture as the inaugural recipient of the Gould Award. I've already checked in and got my swag bag. (Not too shabby if I say so myself: a nice water bottle, a cool t-shirt, and a sample of Cowgirl Chocolates.) I'm presenting my talk Saturday afternoon. Should be a great, science-y extra-long weekend.
