I arrived back in New York City earlier this week after a relaxing holiday only to find that my work office had been severely damaged in a frozen-pipe incident. I spent a big chunk of the week scooping up and disposing of the remains of important documents into large blue trash bins. Luckily, most of my graduate school notes have been spared, but it has still been a major setback and disruption to my life. I’ll also be homeless for a while until I get relocated to a new space elsewhere in the Puck Building.
But you may have noticed that while I was offline, I migrated my blog from blogspot to wordpress and am testing out a new blog design and format. If you notice anything wonky, please let me know. I’d also appreciate any (constructive) feedback you might have.
Also, I wanted to let you know that on Monday morning, I will be traveling up to the beautifully newly restored Roosevelt House at Hunter College to hear Bill Gates give his annual letter – a very fitting place to host this event. I’ll be live tweeting from the event. The thrust of his speech will have to do with Polio, so I’ve been preparing reading and re-reading lots of old classics on the topic. I am looking forward to the event.
So more substance soon…just need a few more days to rebuild, upgrade, and prepare for the new year.Share on Facebook
