Context of previous post

Just realized that my last post was very context here's a stab at some context. I'm at a camp this week called CSST or the 2010 Summer Research Institute for the Science of Socio-Technical Systems. I'll hopefully get a chance to write more about it later, but it's a great coming together of junior and senior researchers from all across fields of sociotechnical systems. So I don't usually hang out or talk with people from management and sociology backgrounds about my research, but this was a venue in which to do so. It has been an amazing experience so far (we leave tomorrow), but one of the interesting parts has been the unstructured social time every day. We documented yesterday's time and turned it into a random, in joke filled comic strip. Having this software makes me think that maybe I'll mess with this more as a form of storytelling so maybe someday you non-CSST folks will understand what the heck is going on (in comic book form).

PS. Apologies to my mother for the language. I was quoting others...Professionally. Also it was a technical term, so it's ok :)
