Ran into Sean at the 61c, talked with him and met a friend of his, a first-year grad in HCI, who, much like chrisamaphone and, less recently, a hell of a lot of other people, corroborates my long-held theory that CMU is behind some sort of conspiracy to draw into the pittsburgh city limits exactly the kind of people I find most awesome and brilliant, even though I stopped actively paying attention to the influx of new people about four years ago. If you'll pardon me I need to go buy about a zillion books right now. Mostly the Foer books and "Giraffes? Giraffes!". Also need to remember that I need to listen to more Bach.
