thelifeguardlibrarian said: Hi Shawn--this is an informal way to go about it, but I figure, hey, this is how we 'know' each other anyway! I know that USF isn't hiring for a public service librarian position now, but I'm moving out next month & I wondered if I might get an informational interview once I'm settled in. I'd love to work for USF someday if the right position opens up, and I'll be living just down the street at Divisadero & McAllister! Feel free to switch to katetkacik at gmail if that works better. Thanks!

Hi Kate! Sorry for the delay responding - I’m in the heartland this week. Info meet up? ABSOLUTELY!!! I know its a bit early… but WELCOME to The City :)) Please shoot me an email calhouns at usfca dot edu when you get to town and have time. lunch on me here at USF in our faculty lounge. OK? Cheers!

22 years ago today, the first photo was uploaded to the web – and it was of an all-girl science rock band from CERN, signing about colliders, quarks, and antimatter.
Oh, and they were actually really, really good.

On July 16, 1969, Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins launched to the moon aboard the Apollo 11. Gizmodo has put together a nice visual essay on how the iconic spacecraft was assembled. Also see how NASA marketed the moon mission to America and how the historic Apollo spacesuit was made.

Thinkgeek is selling these wicked-geeky doormats. Please direct pedantic remarks about the superiority of “There’s no place like ~/” to /dev/peevish. Link (Thanks, eyelessloki!)
