    Really fun week, especially the Sustainability Challenge. Thanks to Rob, Cassandra, and their interns for putting this together in such a great way. Looking forward to the Brown-bag discussion with Johhny Miller at lunch today.

    Had a great time last night at the Illuminated Tree Walk -- hope you did, too. So many great pop-up stations, including the library and sustainability. If you didn't get the chance to go, here's a photo from Stern Plaza.
