Taken on our day outing after Milford.
"I'm an expert on Africa because I took a vacation." @cynthia_ward's shorter Bryan Thomas Schmidt on Resnick. — Nisi Shawl (@NisiShawl) May 28, 2014 (My recollection is that Resnick has been to Africa quite a few times and for fairly long stays for a vacation, but the sentiment is still a valid point.)

We’ve left. We’ve left without the single thing I cared about, possession-wise. We left with almost all the things my mom cared most about. After that, it was a thousand gnats, each of them annoying. I got some writing done on the ferry. I also wrote some code on the ferry, which means I broke […]
