MS&T’10 beginning in Houston

I’ll be writing from Houston for the rest of the week, covering the MS&T’10 and the ACerS Annual Meeting events. Many consider Houston to be one of the centers of commerce for traditional (e.g., oil and gas) energy in the world, so I was somewhat surprised to run into several EV recharging stations like the one above while jogging around downtown.

One of the big events tonight is the Rustum Roy Lecture plus a special reception in his memory. The honored lecturer is Arun Seraphin, assistant director the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, who will be speaking on “Issues in Defense Innovation.” (Roll Call recently named Seraphin as “One of the top defense staffers to know.”
