A very good photo - and they've caught the personality of the robot nicely as well.

I'd say it's a nice photo, but given recent developments on LinkedIn I shall content myself with saying it's a photo :-)

What's happening on LinkedIn?

A young female lawyer sent an older male barrister a friend request (or whatever LinkedIn calls them).

When he accepted he said her photo looked nice.

She published his message on social media to illustrate the sort of sexual harassment women have to put up with.

The story got picked up by the papers.

She is being roundly criticised for Political Correctness Gone Mad!!

Popcorn sales are rising.

Popcorn sales are rising.

I assume the Hugos have already ensured popcorn supplies are scarce. Price must be rising and life must be good for popcorn salesmen.

That is indeed a good photo. As I also thought when I first saw the photo, last week, on doing a google search for your name plus lego robots :-) Which I was doing with El because he came out of school bouncing (literally) with excitement after his first (of four) special robotics lessons where, he told me, he had started learning to program a Mindstorm robot "which are made with lego and keep their brains on their backs." I said it sounded like the sort of thing G's mummy did and let's try to find out. Some looking at photos and watching your STEM ambassador video later, he had happily identified the robots, was pleased that he was doing at nine something that seemed more often done in secondary schools, and thinks you are extremely cool. Which makes you the second of G's parents that he thinks is cool for having a real job doing something he is interested in :-) (a few years ago he decided that when he went to university he would study "science and latin and dinosaurs", which I still think sounds a great combination, even if Greek might be better than Latin given the dinosaurs. I think the ancient language is currently going to have to give way in favour of computers and programming though.) :-D

Thanks! There are some universities which allow fairly freeform Major/Minor style degree combinations, though not, at present, I think any of the top rank ones. However who knows what the situation will be by the time El gets there.
