For those of you who don't know or haven't figured it out, or just don't care, I now have different job responsibilities. kingfox and windexcowboy have alluded to the new department of Computing and Network Services at drewuniversity, of which I now am the director.

Some mixed feelings about this, a little fear, but mostly excitement and a sense that I can now affect positive change and do many of the things I've wanted to do for a long time but couldn't. My optimism may get tempered by reality eventually, but that's okay. I've got a good crew, a supportive boss, and hopefully will be able to line up key allies and garner support around campus. I take the word "director" seriously--it's my job to direct things, I think of it as giving people maps telling them where I want them to go, and give them what they need, and then they go and do it.

I've been at Drew for 10 years, and I have the paperweight to prove it. I'm hoping that the start of my second decade is successful.

Congrats, Mike! You rule! You rule!

(and of course you'll do just fine... you have a copy my book and know the secret formula and everything :-) )
