Celebrating an Oregon State Ecampus ranking while also having an institutional skepticism of rankings. Higher ed is complicated.

Had fun playing Horrified. It’s a cooperative that’s very similar to Pandemic but without the soul-crushing theme. Dracula isn’t as scary as a mutating virus.

Had a great day at the state LEGO robotics tournament yesterday. Our team had a great time and their best performances all around. Such a great way to finish our first time out!

Recent games: Bargain Quest (light fantasy card game), Lords of Waterdeep (still my favorite)

Corvallis has a drive through Christmas lights display that gets a little Lynchian.

fun personal news 

I’m a coach for a First LEGO Robotics team and the kids had a great experience at our first competition last weekend. They’re advancing to the state competition happening in a few weeks!
