The stuff that comes home from a conference

I don't pick up as much stuff at conferences as I used to. I've stopped checking baggage unless I'm traveling with my kid, and I never have room to bring home books and flyers and toys. But it's hard to come home without picking up anything:

Counter-clockwise from top left: AGI's new materials for attracting students to the geosciences; my meeting program (with my scribbled notes from one session inside it); a publisher's book list; a CD from William Prothero, who spoke in my session; a free mini-fieldbook; a public transit map; a sticker from GSA; my name badge (along with a holder that I forgot to recycle); and a cool magnetic shapes game for my son (because it's never to early to learn about rotational symmetry, even if it's 7-fold).

Any suggestions as to where I should put the sticker? I'm considering my computer and my coffee cup at the moment. (The car is officially a sticker-free zone.)

(I had to use the new camera, even if it's for something that will make Chris Rowan jealous. I promise to show pictures of things like rocks or minerals soon, as penance.)

Yay for the new camera!

I have the same sticker and put it on my Tule rooftop box.

Sticker should go on the aluminum clipboard that goes out in the field with you. Or alternatively your front door!
yay for freebies.

Put the sticker on your office door, if there's room.
