Half-developed thoughts, for the sake of posting

To keep this blog going through a dry spell, in case someone cares, I’m putting up one page from a draft for a presentation, which is going agonizingly slow.

Maybe as I keep refining this presentation I’ll put up a later and more complete draft here.

For shame!

A whole week with no posts!

I am currently involved in the following: a massive shifting project, a rushed processing project while our staff person is still here (he leaves on the 19th to become the New Mexico State Historian!), writing up a program review for my work unit (in other words: justifying our existence to the higher powers), moving forward on another, massive processing project, and preparing four – yes, four – presentations.

Just a little bit swamped.
