After wanting a Yamaha V Star for quite some time, I finally got one. I remember taking the bike out and feeling the engine throb as I leaned forward and rolled on the throttle to open her up as we climbed a steep hill. Something about really cranking the engine up just made me smile... still does too.
Wednesday, April 10th, 2013, I walk out of the ischool building and cross Red Square on the UW campus headed for a class for the very first time. Our preview class featured a faculty candidate presentation and then an ongoing conversation about the nature of information and the preservation of it. YAY! So cool. After our meetings are over I find an inconspicuous place to perch and watch. I can't wait until September.
