I’ve just returned from the trial of the Software MFA program
that Dick Gabriel (dreamsongs.com) proposed.

I’m exhausted and will say more about this later, but I do want to
say that thanks to Dick Gabriel, Ralph Johnson, and Brian Marick, this
event was one of the most rewarding experiences of my career. I can’t
wait until the program "officially" starts at UIUC. I’ll be
there.
