Okay, now it's official. [Mar. 26th, 2002|08:56 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
Two important things happened in the last few minutes:

1) I checked my grades online and I passed the general studies class for which I wrote my first LJ paper (technical infrastructure growth)

2) I submitted the final draft of my second LJ paper (business/community/technology interactions) for which I'd already got my grade.

So, lookie here:

Cumulative Summary through Winter Quarter 2002

Graded Credits
Grade Points
Grade Point
UW Credits
Extension Credits
Total Credits
152.0 525.90 3.46 155.0 25.0 180.0
And not a credit too many! Over-achiever am I! :-P

Thanks if you do,
no problem if you dont.

i'm not really a good student. i work(ed) too much instead of doing that homework stuff as much as i should've.

i drove from portland to seattle today, and head back to portland tomorrow with the last of my stuff. then i chill for 5 days in portland, and fly to dresden on the 1st.

Don't post your paper on the web, try to get it published as original material. If it goes up on the web, no one will wish to publish it.

Heh!? That goes against everything Brad stands for!

Besides, these days, with publish-on-demand, and everything else, if Brad truly wished to sell his work in print, there are plenty of ways to do so without having to listen to the whims of a traditional "publisher".

Publish on demand aside, it still does matter where you end publishing papers, because you can end up with a lot of eyeballs looking at work depending on where it ends up at.
Traditional publication also still look better on resumes, vitas and all of that (not that Brad has to worry about a job nor going to graduate school).

I'm actually not arguing with you when it comes to "most other people".
