And now the deep breath before the plunge…

Taking the plunge, from Flickr user Joffley

Hello, blog! Nice to see you again! How’ve you been?

What’s new? I managed to mail off the latest (and last?) draft of my thesis to my committee. Now, to wait until the defense date next week…

For the first time in forever, I don’t have it stuck in the back of my mind.  It’s a strange kind of calm. I like it.  So much more room to think!

So, have you read the Horizon Report 2011: Museum Edition yet? It was just announced at the MCN 2011 conference, and there’s a lot in it. More later…

Where does the time go?

Yikes! It’s the 14th already! I’m in the final throes of getting ready for a thesis defense and I’ve been letting other balls drop left and right, like our meetup. Sorry. Are folks still up for tomorrow night at CBC? I’ll be there and hope to see anybody who’s not at MCN, NEMA, or some other conference.

The MoS is hiring!

The Museum of Science is looking for an Exhibit Developer for a 6 month contract job. Interested? Details are here.

 

When should we have the November Boston Museum Tech Meetup?

Hey friends,

Last month’s meetup at Cambridge Brewing Company in Kendall Square, Cambridge was an intimate affair, but fun. The rainfall that day was spectacular! My shoes have almost dried out…

It’s time to pick a date in November, and more importantly, decide if we want to stay at the CBC or seek another place.  I know it’s convenient for me, but I wonder if the Bostonians might prefer someplace more centrally located.  Without further ado, the polls:

Polls will run through the weekend. I’ll announce date and venue next week!

Cheers,

Ed
