First of all, apologies for the really non-standard question/announcement. I know this is not what MO was intended for, but in this situation it is the easiest way to reach (perhaps) the right person.
On my way back to London from some workshop in Ohio, I got stuck in NYC because of that infamous volcano. No definite news except there is no chance I can get back to Europe before next Friday. I thought I could make something productive with all this time, but have no contact with any mathematicians in any of the Universities nearby.
So, if anybody in NYC or surroundings is interested on hearing about my work (lately mostly about the field with one element, plus some quantum groups and noncommutative geometry stuff), you have the perfect occasion to bring me to your department. For free! I am open to discussions, seminars or in general anything that is going around, if anybody is up, just send an email!
