This marks my last post for the summer. I’ll be back online – both on this blog and on Twitter – most likely the last week of August when the fall semester starts at Lehigh, maybe the first week of September. There are a lot of things I want to get done this summer, both from a professional and a personal standpoint, in Bethlehem and beyond, and I decided to take a page from Seth Godin’s Linchpin book and try to focus my energy away from the Internet for those coming few months. If you know me personally this latest development won’t come as too much of a surprise to you. If it does... you and I really should catch up in person soon. I’ll be checking email once in a while, and that’s about it.
Those among you who need some reading in the meantime may enjoy my most viewed blog posts over the past year:
- Two Analytics Success Stories
- Solitude and Leadership
- David Foster Wallace's Commencement Speech
- Innovation: Boston's Route 128 and San Francisco's Silicon Valley
- Lehigh's 2012 Commencement Speaker
- On Scientific Publishing
- On Impact Factors
- Value-Added Models in Teaching
I’m looking forward to updating all of you in three months on the things I’ve done... and hearing about the things you've done too. Talk to you in late August. Take good care.
