Long Time


Today is the first day of the two-week IGGI module, and I was going to complain about how having a bunch of smart and inquisitive students made me change a slide in my presentation that has remained the same for 10 years.

Never mind that! At lunch time, a friend from when I was an undergraduate, Nigel Roberts, dropped by. We only had 20 minutes to chat, but it's amazing what he's accomplished since we last spoke a couple of decades or more ago. He's on the ICANN panel for domain names, and it's only a matter of time before he's on the full ICANN board. He got a law degree to go with his one in computer science. Most incredible of all, though ...

... he's completely avoided going grey. This man is two years older than me, and although he does have the occasional grey hair, I had more twenty years ago.

I suspect witchcraft.
