Mine the Data @ChangSchool company showcase and networking event starting with @WalterFlaat @dentsuaegis blinded by sunlight, leading to second presenter wearing sunglasses. Officially not #DataScience or #BigData hiring event, attendees learned about what's happening in the market, with intelligence about candidate selection. Event full to capacity with eager students, young and old. (Sears Atrium, George Vari Centre, Ryerson University, Toronto, Ontario) 20191010
In the 1960s and 1970s, the sign facing east used to read Kent Tv, Furniture & Appliances. The second window upstairs on the south side is the bedroom that my brother Ben and I shared through primary and high school. I left town in 1976 for university, came back briefly in 1984 with DY after leaving graduate school (the first time), and hadn't slept here again overnight until last month. We're clearing out artifacts of a generation that is passing. (325 Muskoka Road S., Gravenhurst, Ontario) 20190929
Working from home, new workplace arrangement, as office sent me a 27" monitor for laptop. I already had a laptop and and monitor, plus computer tower under desk. Setup with cleaning took 3 hours of company time, a slow day on a holiday weekend. More tweaks are expected, I spend many so many hours at the keyboard.

Presented same slides http://coevolving.com/commons/20200115-ocadu-systems-changes-different-from , pacing content in synch. Larger group, larger room, interactions with part-time graduate students is a little different from full-time colleagues. These students have a long day, likely before homework over the weekend.

Family dinner on holiday weekend, with everyone back in town. Lobster, peking duck and a series of course.
