I have two brief pieces of news to share:
1. My post on naming conventions in museums was adapted into a piece for the Jan/Feb issue of Museum (formerly Museum News). Please add comments on the original post or on the AAM site to continue the discussion.
2. We now have high-speed internet at my home. As of tonight, I am no longer a slave to dial-up. For those of you who grouse about how kids today don't know where their food comes from, I strongly recommend you consider and appreciate where your internet comes from. Mine came from several muddy days spent digging trenches to lay cable. Yes, you really can shovel your way to the future.
