First Day of School

Today is a great day for learning. The Wife headed off to grad school today, leaving me behind to continue my battle with the percolator. It took three tries, but we reached an accord and I got coffee instead of hot water. Not that I need it, but I'll take small victories.

This may be my favorite time of year, the first week back to school. Working in Oakland gets me an eagle eye view of the incoming freshman class. There's so much promise and excitement before things get real and they get fat. Naive optimism, is there anything better?

Here's a particularly bomb TED talk, noteworthy for the crazy animation and stellar argument. (The last few minutes are exceptional.)
