Well, I graduated yesterday. I got a BS in Economics and Political Science from TAMU and a cool watch from my dad (on the right.) What does the future hold for me? I don’t know, but if you’re looking to hire a highly-motivated techie to design the next killer app, let me know. Meanwhile, I will be having fun at the Objectivist Summer Conference and Cancun this summer as I catch up on my programming and philosophy and put my plans for the future in focus.
I’m going down to Mexico for a day, so excuse my lapse of entries, y ruegue que no consiga la venganza de Montezuma. ¡Muchas fotos que vienen pronto!
Update: Check out the various photos I took along the way.
I’m working on some new websites and learning PHP/MySQL in the process. Check out Capitalism Worldwide to see one of the PHP/MySQL content management sites I have been developing. I celebrated New Year’s at Laurel’s parent’s place, and took lots of pictures, but unfortunately, my BRAND NEW digital camera broke on my way home 🙁
I had a great time in San Antonio over thanksgiving, including good food, several new books to read, and a brand new digital camera! Expect higher quality photos soon!
Meanwhile, check out a few shots I took with the new camera…
Actually, I love swimming, but lately I have been cramped up all over and seriously not ready for my 100 yard swim test on thursday…I should probably spend more time at the pool practicing and less on the keyboard getting carpal tunnel…
(Update: I passed my swim test! Yay!)
…was a blast! I met many, many cool people, talked philosophy, politics, economics, ethics, and business all night, ate some great food, stayed in a snazzy hotel room, and got the (unofficial) job of LP state webmaster in addition to potentially doing some local campagn websites. I also made a tentative speech plan for the coming year and met several potential speaker I can invite to come to A&M.
There were some negative aspects however, such as the highly argumentative nature of the nomination and convention process (more than should be, methinks) Also, some less than qualified people were nominated to office, but I suppose that’s what elections are all about. In any case, I bet the Libertarians are about the only party that actually have a real Parliamentary – style convention process, whereas the Dems, Reps, and Greens probably have big PR gigs, while the real decisions are made in smoky bars and strip clubs. I’d like to know how true that is.
