I'm back from the sadly misnamed Sunbelt XXV, which was visited by buckets and buckets of rain.
I will have a lot to say about this conference in coming days. But I'm going to hold off on networks for just another day or so. I'm a bit overdosed on academic discussions of multiple regressions and still getting my feet back on solid (albeit snow-covered) ground.
When I get going again, one topic I will be sure to discuss is visualization. For now, I will start the visualizing by pointing you to the art gallery run by my friend Niccolo Brooker, on the other side of town from Sunbelt XXV. Niccolo represents the world's best contemporary representational artists. My favorite of this ilk is the aptly-named Odd Nerdrum.
