It’s been a good-news-bad-news kinda day. I got word of two unsuccessful grant proposals, but I also got amazing comments on them: positive, supportive, enthusiastic, and helpful.

Thank YOU, Melissa! I was seriously bummed until I saw the reviews, and then realized that maybe I didn’t get the gift I wanted, but I still got a pretty good one.

It’s been a little slow to connect at times, but every time I’ve tried since the first time it worked, it’s worked. Fingers crossed that it stays that way!

You didn’t hear it from me but: my understanding is that we were an eduroam campus back in the day, but decided to disable it ON campus, and so eventually got booted.

Replying to @kmapesy and @brandontlocke

Lots of whining by certain new digital administrators may or may not have resulted in conversations that produced on-campus reactivation, and thus reinstated access when roaming.

Really excited to be at Transylvania University tonight to keynote the Transylvania Seminar, running through Saturday. With this tweet I officially declare the seminar hashtag to be #transy18.

Of course right after I hit “Tweet” there was a call to make the hashtag #transysem18. I bow to that call. :)

This has been a rough week: some serious disappointments and a lot of bureaucratic annoyances. But today I get to participate in a seminar on the history and future of liberal education, and it’s hard to imagine a greater privilege.

Imagine a little GIF of a caution sign displaying a man digging. Or a cute note asking you to forgive our dust. There’s a bit of renovation taking place around here, but it doesn’t compare to what’s happening outside my window.

One thing I didn’t note in today’s post: the star system has not only distorted the flow of resources through our institutions, but has also deformed our relations with one another by determining what behavior we’ll accept from whom. http://kfitz.info/stars/

Sun Aug 19 22:42:50 +0000 2018

And we wind up replicating those deformed relations. As a friend of mine said to me, in a culture structured by bullying, it’s all but inevitable that you wind up wanting to be the bully.
