Midweek Report, Late May

Life has been busy.

Work is filling my days, and publishing classes are occupying my nights.

I spent the holiday weekend almost finishing up the book I Remember the Future. I missed a deadline for when I wanted the whole thing complete, but I was trying to get the final touches done. Fortunately, my publisher is very forgiving.

This week is Brookline Town Meeting, which fills my evenings. Last night, we approved the Brookline Library RFID program by a vote of 109-87, a lot closer than I thought it was going to be.

This weekend, I'll be returning to Lowell House at Harvard College to attend the June Bell Symposium 2008. The symposium celebrates the 78 years that the Russian Bells hung in the Lowell House Bell Tower, and it honors the return of those bells to the Danilov Monastery in Moscow. Not to worry, though, as the monks have cast a brand-new set of bells to replace the ones being returned.
