AfterMath and Longing

One week after the last exam of the semester, I have translated to a new milieu. Early (well, earlier) to bed, later to rise, a full read of the local and the WSJ, and then onto a few hours dedicated to the study of Java. Lunch, domestic duties, and before you know it, it’s supper time. Afterwards, reading of the enjoyable kind.

I know this interlude will be brief.

Today, after a nice lunch downtown with my bride and a brief spin through some specialty shops, we detoured through the CofC on our way home. The Cistern…..

is ready for the graduating seniors to “walk” for their hard earned degrees. The setting is beautiful, dignified, and reeks of academic ambience.

I can’t wait for my turn…….

“Life’s hard, son. It’s harder when you’re stupid.” — The Duke.

Education is a companion which no misfortune can depress, no crime can destroy, no enemy can alienate,no despotism can enslave. At home, a friend, abroad, an introduction, in solitude a solace and in society an ornament.It chastens vice, it guides virtue, it gives at once grace and government to genius. Without it, what is man? A splendid slave, a reasoning savage. - Joseph Addison
The term informavore (also spelled informivore) characterizes an organism that consumes information. It is meant to be a description of human behavior in modern information society, in comparison to omnivore, as a description of humans consuming food. George A. Miller [1] coined the term in 1983 as an analogy to how organisms survive by consuming negative entropy (as suggested by Erwin Schrödinger [2]). Miller states, "Just as the body survives by ingesting negative entropy, so the mind survives by ingesting information. In a very general sense, all higher organisms are informavores." - Wikipedia
