Oct 22, 2006 — We’ve had a few comments posted. It’s a mixed message, though. Most are spam writers trying to fill the web with their junk. So goes the vagaries of the Web-some good, some not so good. Thank goodness for spam filters!
Meanwhile a serious set of conferences have been announced. One, Tempmeko 2007, The biennial International conference, held last in Dubrovnik, Croatia in 2005, has been announced for next May at Chateau Lake Louise in Banff, Alberta, CANADA. It is still accepting abstracts on various topics in temperature measurement. That ends at the end of October and then the program will be organized from various submissions and announced soon thereafter. Check the weblinks at MeasurementMedia.com.
Also a huge set of databases involving several areas of physics research have been discovered, or at least a source with lots of links to such resources. Look for an article an links on MeasurementDB.com during the coming week. Not this coming Monday, though, October 23rd.
It turns out that the Geological Society of America-GSA is having their 2006 annual meeting in Philly this week, right over the Market Street East subway station. That’s nearly in our backyard and we always look for good excuses to visit the Philadelphia Convention Center
We expect to at least visit the Exhibition for part of a day or two and learn what’s news from the 20 or more instrumentation companies showing their latest goodies.
