1. New Verity Episode! Episode 46: Communication Breakdown is live. 2. Work is quiet, in the sense that I’m mostly working on things like annual reports and tenure portfolio reviews, that I can poke at slowly over time well before the deadlines. We are planning Digital POWRR workshops in the fall (I will be […]
2013 was an interesting year, full of beginnings and endings. Michael and I were discussing it (as you do), and I felt like I hadn’t accomplished anything this year. So we started listing the things that we did this year, because they should count! 1. I got tenure. This is a BIG BIG DEAL, as it […]
