AAS in Austin

While I am stuck in Baltimore working on a SMEX proposal, the AAS is going on in Austin, TX.
Carol is actually there and will give a series of talks and she's talking pictures! She also carried all our posters there.
Google and perhaps Microsoft with their World Wide Telescope will also be there. Google has a workshop planned that will run Tue+Wed+Thu and expose the astronomical community to GoogleSky.

OPO gave us a new home where we will be posting our KMLs and Tony Rogers completed ADD2SKY v 1.0 which makes use of wcs2kml to add FITS files (for now) to the sky. In the future we want to simply allow amateur to upload their own images!
