June 21 Day 835: Great Lessons

Day two of the ILAS conference in Galway featured the first half of the mini symposium honoring the work of my thesis advisor, Richard Brualdi. It is the reason I am here.

The “Brualdi insights” that I pick up from today’s speakers: are:

  • Drive somewhere with Richard (preferably to a conference.)
  • The key to writing success is to pick good co-authors.
  • Work with people you like.
  • Ask good questions…. No that’s not quite right. Better to say, listen to Richard’s questions because he always asks good ones.

The mini symposium continues Thursday when I get to add my own insights.

Today’s photo features the window of an auctioneer with the same name as my father’s. When I was young, my parents took a special trip to Ireland. Of their many photos was a picture of my Dad standing in front of a Super Quinn market. Today’s photo is not exactly the same, but it’s as close as I can get for now.
