What Happens in Henley-on-Thames Stays in Henley-on-Thames

In perhaps the irony of the century, I am here in Henley-on-Thames for an Interdisciplinary workshop on the evolution of social norms.

Because you know me: I'm all about social norms. Yup.

By the way, I thought getting here would be easy, but in fact there was massive confusion, so I'm going to need to talk to the organizers about this. (I got so frustrated that I actually came close to heading back on the train to Oxford tonight.) Anyway, I'm here and I'm looking forward to the science!

(In fact, I will have one norm in my talk---exactly one norm: the entry-wise matrix 1-norm.)

Glad you made it. Well it WAS confusing getting here. I was lucky because Jeff was driving me in his car and his iphone told us where to go without these aids I would have been lost.

Dave (also finding himself at this workshop on norms)...

My situation had the additional potential of being complicated by the fact that I also (very purposefully) don't own a mobile phone---talk about not following social norms!

[My solution did occur before I would have even used one, however.]
