Illusions and Reality

I got a new BlackBerry today. I have been playing around with different applications. I’ve installed gmail, google maps, facebook,flickr and the word press app so I can blog from my phone. I’m not sure if I can insert a picture from my phone to the blog,but I’m going to try. It seems I can insert a picture from a web address…so it would seem that if I can upload it to flickr then I could link to it from the blog.

 

I’m an Einstein Fellow 3 April 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — martieinstein @ 6:49 pm

So I heard a week ago that I had been selected to be an Einstein Fellow in the Office of Polar Programs at the National Science Foundation.  Now that I have been floating on cloud 9 all week I am ready to start really thinking about my big move to the DC area.  Part of my transitional phase is to start this blog to write about all of the adventures of my Einstein year.

So I will start by posting a couple of pictures from the fabulous interview weekend in DC which was only three short weeks ago.

View from my room at the LEnfant Plaza Hotel during the interview weekend.
