Blogging the American Geophysical Union Meeting - I

About 19,000 registered attendees last year at the American Geophysical Union meeting at the Moscone center in San Francisco, and probably 22,000+ attendees this year.  The problem is, how do you accomodate all those scientists who want to present their research?  The answer (at least it has been for a couple of decades) is poster presentations.  This solution now looks like it has gotten to its obvious overwhelming stage -- thousands of posters every day in a cavernous poster hall.  My poster was number 2518, the image below is about 1/5 of the poster hall. 

There is no way any of us can absorb all this information!
