Given all my technical difficulties (read: user errors) between Monday and Tuesday, I’ll keep this short and try (fingers crossed) to post it on the right day.

Thank you again to all my readers and fellow researchers, as well as the fabulous speakers I’ve been able to learn from this year. I hope everyone has a fabulous Thanksgiving!
