I actually didn’t buy an APS t-shirt — or a bumper sticker, slinky or travel mug — but I’m still glad I came to Denver.
Here’s some miscellany I learned today.
• There are no guns allowed in the Colorado Convention Center — but nowhere to “check ’em at the door”.
• Top basketball coaches at US universities earn in excess of one million dollars a year. Not sure how much a top physicist earns…
• APS editor in chief Gene Sprouse told me that the funny symbol that appears next to articles of interest in Physical Review Letters is a colophon that appeared on the cover of the first issue of PRL.
