Distinguished Professor induction

As Dan said, it was a proof by induction. At around midday I realized that I had not yet written my little speech, so did that instead of getting my class prepared. Firehouse’s short movies were fun: Mark Nichter’s had a lot of photos of him half-dressed in Southeast Asia. Dan compared my career to a professional juggling act on TV.

The dinner afterwards with the Regents was dominated rather by Vicki Chandler talking about Bio5, leaving the impression that we were accidental invitees to somebody else’s party.
