Not much blogging this week, as I'm at the World Conference of Science Journalists in Doha, Qatar. I'm informed that the technical term describing my role here is that of trailing spouse. But I did give a little talk on upcoming discoveries we should be looking forward to in particle physics and cosmology. I'll try to put up a more full report later. Right now I've just been guilted into blogging because I'm listening to a sexy and exciting panel about science blogs, staring Mo Costandi, Maryn McKenna, Jennifer Ouellette, Ed Yong, and Mohammed Yahia. And just to prove I'm here, I can show you what a sign inside Starbucks looks like in an Arab country.

Afterwards I'll be headed to the souk to shop for scimitars.
