Starting the second intensive summer program, the Advanced Student Technology Program. 10 undergraduate participants moved into the dorm last night, which I’ve had mostly to myself for the last couple of weeks (why am I so possessive of my personal space?). Anyway, we’re in the middle of introductions, seems like a good group, lots of interest in art, film. In addition to my usual duties, I’m also hoping that the group will agree to participate in my first research study. Kind of nervous starting out, but hey, trial by fire seems to be the only way to go.
Speaking of finding my way with research, I’m not even sure that I should be mentioning it here, in a public space on the web – when can I talk about it with others? Before, during… certainly after. But only after the final draft has been turned in? (hopefully) published? Clearly privacy issues demand that pseudonyms be used in any discussion of ongoing work.
