It has been a hectic couple of weeks as the semester at the School of Information wrapped up. I took a great class in applications of network theory and will be writing about that quite a bit as time goes by. The professor, Lada Adamic, is a first-year prof here and she is clearly an amazing catch for the school.
I have taken something of a hiatus from blogging during this period due both to the academic workload and the recent return to our household of my 21-year-old daughter and her 10-month old son, who is without a doubt the cutest baby ever. They have been in northern Peru where MIchelle has been teaching and doing social change work for much of the last two years.
As a result of these wonderful distractions, I have a accrued a lengthy backlog of topics I wanted to cover and blog entries to which I wanted to respond. I will either be posting a lot during the next couple weeks, or not at all due to seizing up with indecision over what to attack first.
We'll have to wait and see which way it goes.
