A few updates before the weekend…
First, let me answer two FAQs.
1. If you send in your reply form to MIT telling us that you’re coming (and if you have decided to come, please do send it in!), we will reply to you with a postcard letting you know we have received your reply, and to await the Next Big Mailing (NBM) in May.
2. Yes, I will be hosting an event at the International Science & Engineering Fair (ISEF) this year in Indianapolis. It will be on Thursday, May 11. I’ll fill you in on all of the details soon.
Relatedly, I will also be doing a small event at the American Regions Math League (ARML) at the Penn State site (sorry Iowa and Las Vegas). More details forthcoming.
A little personal news: right below my picture and name in the right-hand navigation bar, close-reading viewers will notice that my title has change from Assistant Director of Admissions to Associate Director of Admissions (yes, this is a promotion). Luckily, I don’t have to give up blogging, so I won’t be going anywhere.
Also in the right-hand navbar, at the bottom there’s a section where I give props to the folks behind the blogging platform (Movable Type) and hitcounting site (StatCounter). Following those two, I’ve had a rotating list of other props-worthy links, and currently those links are two you may want to check out. One is for the animated TV series O’Grady, which is a lot of fun (and you can watch the episodes online!); I’m hoping to get more folks to watch it, since the director/producer is a friend, and they’re hoping to get picked up for a third season. Also hoping to get picked up for a third season is my favorite show, Veronica Mars. So get the word out — these shows are actually worth watching. [I figure I’m allowed an editorial comment or two every once in a while]
It’s a beautiful day here in Cambridge, and it’s a four day weekend for MIT students (Saturday-Tuesday) and three day weekend for staff (Saturday-Monday), so I think I’ll be heading home now for a nice weekend. Happy Spring!
