Colleges and universities cannot be expected to solve America’s problems of inequity. They cannot repair broken families, or make up for learning deficits incurred early in childhood, or “level the playing field” for students with inadequate preparation. But they should be expected to try to mitigate these problems rather than worsen them—and one main reason they are failing to do so is their relentlessly rising cost.

Northwest Arkansas isn't California's Silicon Valley and has a long way to go before it can be considered remotely comparable, but technology industry leaders say the area is proving to be on the short list of best places in the field.

Pitmasters, this will be hard to swallow: Some of the best smoked brisket comes out of Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Can we have some more options in repeating event periods? In particular:
- monthly by day of week (every 3 months on the 2nd Saturday)
- have "after completion" as an option for each period type

Also, great job on repeating multiple days in a week (Mon/Wed/Fri) and last day of month! Those are great features.

The Owl Creek STEM Expo couldn't have gone better. Nothing more fun than serving Cheetos frozen by liquid nitrogen to dozens of middle school scholars.

Elegant Solutions to Interesting Problems
Introduction

I'm CISO at the University of Arkansas, so I think a lot about Information Security. I also think about how information flows from humans to computers, between computers, and back to humans. There are a lot of inefficiencies in that flow, and I think that's one of the primary reasons that information technology hasn't yet made our lives better.

I'm a strong proponent of open systems and free software (a.k.a. open source software). I believe that I should be in control of my computer and the data on it, and that control extends to any environment that I use, local or cloud-based.

I'm very interested in emerging technologies, and the possibilities of cloud infrastructure, especially self-hosted clouds in micro data centers.

I think that good Internet identity concepts lead to better communication and collaboration, while preserving privacy.

When I'm not occupied by all of the above, I sometimes like to go fly a plane. I haven't done it in years due to the rising cost of aircraft rentals, but flight is amazing. I read a lot. I occasionally write something interesting. I take care of my family, and I think about the future.
