Glad to see that France still has 2€ bottles of wine. Just like the last time I was here 15 years ago.

I wonder if I could convince my university to let me work remotely if I had one of these bad boys to attend meetings with. 🤔

There's a petition to Save the .org top level domain. Apparently, ICANN could still stop it from being sold.
I know, petitions rarely work, but I also know that _sometimes_ they do.
Please consider signing if you _run_ anything there, or if you _use_ or _care about_ anything that's on a .org domain. Also, boosting this to others who follow you, would be very much appreciated.

If you have a .org domain name: go renew it now. For the full 10 years.

Registration rights for .org were just bought by a private equity firm. And as part of that contract, the price caps were removed.

Anything in .org will get much more expensive, soon.

A ten year renewal will cost you a bit over a hundred bucks. Which is probably less than one year will cost you in the very near future.

It looks like as of January my administrative chain will include an interim associate dean, interim dean, interim provost, and interim chancellor.

I guess at least my department chair is in an elected position.

Sometimes I wish I had come up with a cool moniker back in my early internet days.

This article is bad and the authors should feel bad.

"...we can all but guarantee you won’t be going back [to Machu Picchu] there again unless you were begged." Definitely not true for me.
