This week went from the last gasp of summer to well-and-truly fall-like in one long and rainy afternoon. The cooler temperatures are introducing us to the leading edge of winter with frosts around the corner and a bit less dog fur to clean up around the house.
It also means that baseball is wrapping up, football is underway, and things are starting to get serious in NASCAR and (as much as they can) in Formula 1. Cricket is starting down under and the first test of the summer is just weeks away. The semester has hit its stride and the excitement of new classes and new projects has given way to the grind of “doin’ work.”
Hopefully there’s still time for some quick hits and varia:
- The Cats of St. Nicholas.
- The spiders will have their party and will soon die.
- 3D Istanbul.
- Historical Materialisms in Athens.
- Crowdsourcing funds for Paphos Theater Excavations.
- Book covers from the AIGA Design Archives.
- Time to move on.
- Resisting Reduction.
- Can someone please just buy my book?
- Diversity and Inclusion in Peer Review.
- Refugee stories from Athens.
- “Mysterious” Trees.
- MIT Open Access task force.
- Post-Apocalyptic Toronto.
- What I’m reading: Norbert Wiener, The Human Use of Human Beings. (1954).
- What I’m listening to: Thad Jones, The Magnificent Thad Jones. 1956.
