I had a great day at the Institute for Advanced Study, my old stomping grounds. I gave a black-board talk (no computer), which shocked a few people. After my talk, I learned about ultra-high magnification microlensing events from Subo Dong (IAS) who convinced me that you can discover planets in a wide range of configurations with these systems. I also discussed with an editor the possibility of doing a Sloan Digital Atlas of Galaxies, something I have been dreaming about for years.
