AERA in sum

About the conference side of AERA - I didn't do as much conferencing as last year in Chicago. At this point, I have a pretty good idea of what I'm interested in, and there weren't a whole lot of sessions of interest to me. However, I did see some good stuff. Also, my presentation with Mr. Kindhearted went pretty well. Our discussant was someone who always has good criticisms to make. He never says, "Wow, this paper was even better than sliced bread," but any critical remarks are helpful and fair. And if he thought our paper was dreadful, he would have said so - and he didn't. So now we go into the Revising For Publication stage. As far as my roundtable with my advisor, let's just say that not a lot of people are there at Monday at noon!
