Good News, vol. I

This is the first of what I hope will be many volumes.

I just found out today, three months after applying, that I've been accepted to a prestigious Adam Smith conference, which is to be held in January 2009 at Oxford. This was the first bit of good news I had received in a while, so I really needed this. Normally, getting into a conference isn't all that impressive, but this is a very prestigious and competitive one, so I'm absolutely thrilled. There's also a chance that my paper will be included in a publication following the conference. Of course, I have more pressing concerns for the moment (comps, etc), so I will not even begin on this until summer 2008. Here's hoping that this is a good sign for better things to come in 2008.

If you are at all interested, click here for the CFP (call for paper).
