The parking lots and stands are full of proud parents carrying flowers and stuffed animals. People who don't normally wear socks are wearing ties. The opening strains of "Pomp & Circumstance" are wafting up from the field. This is the last official post to the 2011-2012 course blog.
It's hard to express-- especially for a wordy guy who's been talking your ears off all year-- how proud I am of you. Thank you for all your contributions. I wish each and every single one of you great success and I look forward to seeing you on in the alumni forum (you'll receive an invitation at the email address you listed on the course evaluation).

If we're going to make the "open house" approach work tomorrow, we're going to need at least five laptops in periods 2 and 3. Please plan on bringing yours, or, if you'd like, please sign up in advance by commenting to this post. Period 2 had the idea-- thanks again, Jake!-- but only Ryan signed up.

I was just looking something up on the course blog when I noticed--to my great surprise, at nearly 1 AM Sunday morning-- there are nine other visitors. On the odd chance those visitors are students, you have a chance to claim 100 points of Project Infinity credit by commenting to this post before 10 AM PDT Sunday (6.3) with a brief explanation of your favorite literary quote of all time. If you're a visitor but not a student, comment with a quote anyway. You'll receive double the credit; of course, it won't do you any direct good, but it will give students a reason to comment in an effort to impress you--and if they do, you can reward them with a portion or all of your points.
