Car horns. Marching band. Tuned exhaust pipes. Incessant police and fire sirens. Overcompensating drive-by stereo systems. How does such a tiny place manage to generate so much noise?
It’s 77 degrees outside on this nice Sunday afternoon. I walked to the Library to do some Acrobat Pro wrangling, and I saw many students out including the local LARPers (they were filming their battle performances for future generations). I just returned from Kinkos after placing a big print order. Now, I am off toContinue reading “Warm Weather Returns to Kent”
Last week, Y and I picked up our friend Masaya from the airport. He is back in Kent, late of Japan, for another research mission.

I passed out a lot of SFRA bracelets, brochures, and conference announcements, so I hope to see some of you not-yet-SFRA members, but soon-to-be SFRA members next year inContinue reading “SLSA 2008, Back in Kent”
