Mining current optical and infrared databases to find variable active galactic nuclei.
I was surprised how many people I now know after 2 AAS [meetings]. There were quite a few people who remembered me and were interested in talking with me. This was fun (I like talking with people) and disruptive as I did not make as many talks as I anticipated.
I can't begin to tell you what a wonderful experience this week was for me and my students. The skills and knowledge we all picked up were great.
Having scientists explain their research and bringing it down to my level was very interesting and I learned so much!
