I hope this post greets everyone safe and cozy at home, resting from a week packed of optics innovation. I am still catching my breath. There was just so much. I would have liked to have attended many more talks, visited more booths at the expo, met up with more colleagues, and posted more (I still might on the latter- it turns out, for better or worse, Newton's First Law applies to blogs as well). Harold Metcalf was correct is is pre-CLEO analysis "Looking over the program and the titles of the sessions, I feel like a kid in a candy store- with unlimited funds, but limited time. It's impossible to do everything."
However, I intend to update this ClEO blog for a little longer with posts that I couldn't squeeze in during the week. I am going to try to have my "candy" and eat it too, though hopefully without a stomachache (figuratively or literally) for blogger or reader.
Regardless, mark your calendars for May 6-11, in 2012 for next year's meeting in San Jose!
