I gave two lectures on Saturday, August 2nd. Most importantly, after the lobster dinner on Thursday, I led us in singing The Amphioxus Song, the official course song. That depended on my plane arriving early enough at Logan Airport to allow me to catch the right buses to get there, as I was arriving that evening. (They held a lobster, butter sauce, a sausage, a corn cob, and some strawberry shortcake for me). Thanks to Emily McTavish for saving the food, and to Mitch Sogin for driving me from the Sagamore Park and Ride.
I will gave two lectures on 2 August 2014, one on phylogenetics and quantitative characters, and one on the history of numerical work on phylogenies.
I was available in the course Friday and Saturday, and was pleased to talk to many people. I left early Sunday, as I need to co-lead the Evolutionary Quantitative Genetics tutorial at NIMBioS in Knoxville, Tennessee all the following week.
I have been lecturing in this course since its first year, 1988. This included the hurricane year of 1991. I was supposed to arrive on the evening that Hurricane Bob hit Woods Hole. When I did not show up, people worried that I had been washed away (I was actually at O'Hare International Airport, as my flight to Boston was held because of the hurricane). I have lectured in this course every year since 1988, except for 1996, 1998, and 2010.
