Blue Devil Milestone

It's been a long great ride. With my adviser's approval, I have submitted my master's project to Duke. Grateful to all of those who have supported my efforts not just during this project but this degree, I am finished and awash in relief. Only the ritual and celebration remains (okay, the some of celebrations have already started).

When I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with my computer science degree (way back when), I couldn't give a hoot about graduation ceremonies. While challenging, the completion of that degree was never really in question. On May 11th, 2008, however, I'll be doning that blue cap and gown with pride and receive this master's diploma grinning wide. For this degree was in question many times: it was through grit and grace that this moment has arrived.

For your loyalty, I'm going to punish all of you readers (both of you?) by selecting portions of my project and posting them here. I mightily encourage your comments: ideas, suggestions, criticisms, questions or just musings. So get ready, here comes An Information Systems Strategy for the Conservation Community.
