Just got off the phone with a former student of mine. Over the weekend I heard about a new resource that is going to be in place for my school by the end of this semester... and it triggered an idea in my head.
I touched base with this student--who was always a favorite!--to get his advice on 1/ whether he thought it was viable and 2/ whether he could help. Both answers were: Yes!
This will mean more grants and funding--because there is no free lunch (sigh)--but I can start small and move slowly toward world domination.
Or simply exciting possiblities.
Ah, technology... perhaps my paranoia is unfounded.
In this case.
