I was recently reminded, again, that the science folks on social media are pretty good folks to know. If you happen to notice that you will be travel overlapping in a city with someone you only know via the blogs or the Twitters, reach out.
It won't always be possible* to meet up for a coffee, beer or meal, sure. But if you can work out the scheduling, it is well worth it.
In other news, I finally got a chance to meet Dr. Rubidium. So that was nice.
In case you missed it on the twitters, she's Scientopia's latest newly hired Assistant Professor, starting in the fall.

Please join me in congratulating her, if you missed the chance to do so on Twitter.
*and yeah, I know, creepers are on social sci-media too. Be circumspect. Get references from people you trust if you have to! 🙂
