Video: my AAS231 hack day project

AAS 231 is less than a week away! I'm super excited, since it has been almost 2 years since I was at a AAS meeting. Longtime readers of this blog will know this is a meeting where I get lots of inspiration, and carry out new side-projects (e.g. the Gender in Astro Talks survey!)

This year is no different, and I will be doing a new Hack Day project: creating a AAS/Hack Day vlog!

As a long-time blogger, I know to not promise too much in terms of specific output (the best laid plans...), but my hope is to shoot several videos documenting what it's like to attend the worlds largest* annual astronomy meeting. Here is a short video explaining the project, and how you can help!

I'm hoping these videos will capture some of the synthesis moments, the conversations between scientists that give rise to new ideas and projects. I'll be documenting heavily the Hack Together Day itself, and trying to film conversations between myself and other astronomers throughout the week. If you're a junior scientist or student and have a poster and want me to help promote your work, I would love to chat! Hit me up!

Twitter Bonus: I'll also be running the AstroTweeps twitter account (@astrotweeps) during that week, so I'll be posting poster pics/live-tweets of talks, and insights into the meeting there!

Since this website has often focused on data visualization, I'll of course try to highlight awesome plots/graphics/maps, and especially animations I'm seeing.

See you all in DC at #AAS231 soon!

*largest annual meeting, probably not the largest single meeting
