One nice thing about blogging is that you get to correct what you write. Tonight I put up a long post that I had second, third, fourth and fifth and additional thoughts about, and finally decided to kill. I do that a lot, actually.

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

On May 5, I had the honor of giving the commencement address at Penn State’s College of Information Sciences and Technology. Dean David Hall gave me very good advice on what makes for a good commencement speech: make it personal, tell us about yourself including your background, and keep it short. He also suggested that I share with the new graduates any key lessons I have learned during my long career. .

Clark Quinn

I was talking today with an organization that has mentoring as a very core feature of their culture, and it got me reflecting on the fantastic luck I’ve had in my career. Even before working, I had some great teachers, and then many folks have helped shape me through my job experience. Dick Bergeron was a 12th grade teacher at SPHS who really helped me understand a different path to learning and thinking.
