Attended opening ceremony of San Jose State University SLIS campus. Spartan Writer said, cutting ribbon (see pic 1) "We are San Jose SLIS--moving to the edge and experimenting". Then off to the drinks tent.
All v. nice people but everyone else evidently best chums, so one of those events where end up sidling furtively round room and then talking to cat (see pic 2). After was run over by flying carpet (conversation in passing "We are building options and opportunity--not mandatory programs") decided to call it day.
