For the interested.

I need to get a new photo taken, because the one at the foot of this page (and which serves as my bio photo over at is woefully out of date. I have once again grown in my winter beard, my hair is getting longish again, I am well and truly enrolled at MIT now, and I am presently dating a wonderful woman (who is, alas, still in Chicago) named Caitlin who is an award-winning playwright, a librarian, a masseuse, and skilled in the use of Sharp Pointy Things. She kicks much ass. I have not yet mentioned her in these pages because I've been trying to keep her all to myself, but Monday afternoon, when putting her on a plane back to Chicago, I made the somewhat foolish mistake of asking, "Does it bother you that I haven't yet mentioned you in my weblog?" To which she replied, "You have a weblog?" Oops. So, consider her mentioned.

Other things. I made a little progress today on my novel. Not a lot, only a few pages, but I still consider that a breakthrough, since there hasn't been much happening on that front in a while. I think I'm finally entering the endgame on this first draft; at the very least, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel without a telescope now.

I need to head to bed now; it's 12:43 AM and I'm going to be spending pretty much all day tomorrow on campus watching a series of dog-and-pony shows put on by the profs at the Media Lab, explaining what they're up to and what directions their works are taking. I'm very much looking forward to this. It's like Christmas for media geeks.
