Academic Orientation

Classes at HMC started today, Sep 2, so I had to work on Labor Day, but it was for a good cause. Apologies to organized labor everywhere. Apparently, this is not unusual at schools that are on a semester system. Since I lived with the quarter system at UCLA, I had no clue!

One thing I did was a brief presentation for Academic Orientation.  The freshman class was introduced to topics like plagiarism, cooperation on homework, time management etc.  My bit was on some Computing Services and, of course, on file sharing.  In talking about file sharing, I focused on the RIAA's tactic of sending early settlement letters for the College to deliver to users whom the RIAA claims are infringing copyright.
