I've been back from my personally funded trip to West Point for a couple of weeks now. So if I'm going to write anything about it, I should probably write it now before I forget too much.
I'm heading out on a flight to West Point tomorrow for the Workshop on Network Science, where I'll be making a presentation and participating in a panel. Under normal circumstances, this would be funded as part of the work of a research project. However, the funding has to be approved by the higher-ups in my institute, and unfortunately, certain recent events have made it impossible for the higher-ups to approve anything for a while.
