had gotten emails about the protest, but only coincidentally showed up to get some pizza for lunch before heading to work. very large crowd, peaceably shut down franklin street for a short while, walking, shouting, chanting, beating drums, waving signs from campus to carrboro. go people!
next friday i fly to tanzania. not much to say about that. mostly i’ve been obsessively reading about digital cameras. i’m just not sure what I value in a camera the most. or put more zenly: “what camera most resembles the inner me?”
(jackie would laugh, as i’m having the same trouble in picking out a car to hypothetically purchase.)
planning on going to the chi (computer human interaction) conference in fort lauderdale in early april. i’ve never been to florida before. that might be cool. i guess this would be me trying to participate in the academic side of my masters program (as opposed to just going to the bar with folks in my program).
