Bioinformatics Site Visit the First

I met our first of our candidates for the KBRIN bioinformatics position this morning1, at the Morningstar Inn Bed and Breakfast. Of course I had to sit down and eat!

I showed him around the department very briefly, as I shall do with all the interviewees.

His Plant Pathology seminar was pretty good - he's doing data integration.2
Not much data mining, machine learning, or CS, though, despite the talk being titled "Data Integration and Mining" or something to that effect. Not suprising given his background (Ph.D. biology, M.S. in CS).

The talk was nice, though I knew nothing about transposons until I looked them up.

Dinner at Coco Bolo's. Crab-stuffed mushrooms and chile verde.
A hobbit could get used to this interviewing process. :g:

Edit, 02:45 Mon 20 Sep 2004: Oh, and today jereeza broke off our engagement. It's taken me until now to get over it and write about it. Grats to you and Duck, Haxie.

1 ...again after about 2 hours of sleep interrupted in the middle
2 Gotta like a guy whose nickname is LJ. :-P

I love reading your LJ, Bana. I always seem to learn neat things. Some day you'll come South, and we'll have to meet, you know that, right?

Aww
I love reading your LJ, Bana.
Thanks for reading, and commenting. It's much appreciated.

I always seem to learn neat things.
Coming from a brilliant librarian such as yourself, Majesty, that's high praise.

Some day you'll come South, and we'll have to meet, you know that, right?
:g: Say rather that someday I will come back South. I was born in Atlanta and spent the first two years of my life there. I lived for 3 years in Florida later.

Yes, we do need to meet.
I'll let you know the next time I'm in the south.

It's my pleasure, friend. =)

Learning is one of my favourite things. Though I learn much being a librarian, I learn things of greater endurance and interest from friends.

Mmmm...Atlanta. I haven't been in years, except through the airport. Haven't been to Florida since 1998. Love it. Where in FL did you live?

Yes, we do need to meet.

Please do. No matter where you're going, let me know. Hopefully something can be arranged.

Thanks!
I have banazir@gmail.com already, but I'd be glad to add rizanabsith@gmail.com for my dealings on the shadier side.

(And also to confuse miajesbar with more addresses ;))

If you know someone who doesn't have one at all yet, though, please give it to him or her, as it's needed more there.
