Busy day. Dashed over to GW early to catch the keynote address of Tech@State by the President of Coursera, Lila Ibrahim. Ran into friend/colleague and co-CUA librarian, TS, and had a nice chat. After her speech I met with Ms. Ibrahim and we chatted about ModPo. She had her folks take a picture, which she e-mailed to me, which I posted to Facebook (of course). Here is a link to the photo and comments (hope this works!): https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=211690639012407&set=gm.256472484504884&type=1&theater

Took a group photo (which we have not yet received) and a single shot with Grand Master Ben Franklin, which I posted here: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=211784162336388&set=a.142153369299468.1073741826.100005144172946&type=1&theater
