I arrived yesterday at New Views of the Universe, the Inaugural Symposium of the Kavli Institute for Cosmological Physics, held at the Hyatt Regency Chicago. I've been having a wonderful time, and have been hanging out a bit with co-bloggers Sean and Risa. I will have time to post properly about this trip when I get back, on Wednesday. However, I wanted to mention one thing immediately. In the last two days I've come across a lot of people who I know, who are regular Cosmic Variance readers and who, because they haven't commented, have remained lurkers. Now there's no pressure, but I thought it might be fun to see whether, if you are at this conference, and are a reader, you'd like to identify yourself in the comments. Anyone?
