This is becoming a tradition at the end of the academic year — to say thank you to the staff that is invisible but makes things happen and certainly helps the Art Sci center!

The audience was really helpful with their comments and questions — really enjoyed meeting some new people too! Unfortunately I missed Lev’s presentation the day after — had to drive out to Santa Barbara for the Moxi museum pre-opening…
Unbelievable how time flies! Just last week, Kathy High was participating in the LASER I was hosting at UCLA and in her intro mentioned how we first met during the early cable TV — Videowave — interview in NY. And today I find this on facebook! 🙂
