Quote - Proust (on the theme of anti-authoritarianism)

"We do not receive wisdom, we must discover it for ourselves, after a journey through the wilderness, which no one else can make for us, which no one can spare us . . . " -- Marcel Proust

MIT has a great anti-authoritarian culture on campus which is part of what helps encourage innovation. Pictured here is the famous dollar bill mural which has been painted across the door to the financial office where students pay tuition.

It's now being converted into a lounge along the Infinite Corridor. Back in 1993 students changed the $1 to a $10,000 bill in protest of the rising price of a semester's tuition.

more on spring break

IMG_0897.JPG, originally uploaded by eesley.

I spent much of spring break here at the luxurious (though snobby) HBS library working on research. The weather was beautiful all week so I'd take a leisurely walk up the river and across the bridge to the HBS campus.

It's shaping up to be a summer full of travel. Here's the itinerary:

June 8-10th - Conference presentation in Indiana at IU (hopefully will get to see Mike A. or Rachael
June 26-28th - NeuroCog Trials in Miami
July 8th - Cincinnati for Curt's wedding
July 13-14th - Chicago for NeuroCog Trials
July 16-17th - LA for NeuroCog Trials
Aug. 11-17th - Atlanta for the AOM Conference presentation

UPDATE: Not to mention a trip or two to NYC to visit Curtis/Ashley, and Mike/Allison.

Oh, by the way, it snowed yesterday, big flakes. Snow . . . April . . . WTF?

Spring Break

IMG_0902.JPG, originally uploaded by eesley.

I haven't had a spring break in four years. I think it's one of those things that you sort of take for granted in college and then once you're working you realize how great it is to have a whole week off. Cindy spent it working with a CDC non-profit in New Orleans. With plane tickets through the roof and a ton of work to catch up on, I spent it "visiting Boston" since I hardly have had time to get across the river. Fortunately it was beautiful weather here all week. Last Sunday I met up with D and visited the Isabella Gardener museum. Tuesday was shooting pool with Todd, and Wednesday I went to the Boston Symphony Orchestra with Teresa. (excerpts.) As you can see Symphony Hall is beautiful and the music was great. More pics from the week to come . . .

First textbook chapter

A couple of years ago Dr. Richard Keefe and I wrote a chapter on Neurocognitive Impairments in Schizophrenia. My copy of the textbook arrived today. It was pretty cool to see our writing there in Chapter 13!
