Rob Wittig’s blog course this semester looks great! A lot of work for the teacher, I fear, but I think perhaps that’s just that the US system works differently.

It’s amazing; it’s only September, and I’m already late in planning next semester. They want us to have finalised schedules by October 12, so international students, who have to apply early, can see which classes won’t crash.

I’ve interpreted this as interest and a need to understand – but yesterday, Eirik Solheim said that every time […]
