Dinner for NetSci2011 at Sofitel Budapest

Pictured below is Robin Dunbar (Oxford) making jokes about monogamy watched by Albert-László Barabási (Harvard, Northeastern), Uri Alon (Weizmann Institute), Alain Barrat (Centre national de la recherche scientifique) and Andrea Baronchelli (UPC Barcelona). Not pictured, but still in the room are other well known luminaries such as Brian Uzzi (Kellogg School of Management), and Hawoong Jeong (KAIST). Next year’s NetSci will be at Northeastern and will be organised by Brian Uzzi.

Hungry in Hungary

I’ve arrived in Budapest (on the Pest side) and taken a picture out of the window. That’s all so far but I’m looking forward to mapping out some of the necessary places I need to go and some of the less-than-necessary but culturally-valuable (read: food) places I think I should go. Here is the first of the pictures. The rest are likely to be food, or pictures of networks or famous network scientists.
