Jonathan Eisen shares the embarrassing story of his first conference talk at his blog The Tree of Life. Not only did he barely sleep the night before (his room lacked an alarm clock and his talk was an early one), but just before his talk, he sat in a puddle of water spilled from a pitcher. "And so - there I was - dripping wet in my see through shorts - turning around and pointing to the screen talking about RecA as though all was fine," Eisen writes.
