  1. what I have been up to

    Lots of people I saw in Boston were asking ‘what have you been up to’ instead of the usual ‘sounds like things are good from your blog’ :) I guess I’ve been a little quiet here about me, personally. So some updates: School is generally good; the first two years ended up being very successful…

  2. Software Freedom Day event in New York City
