We're off! The first logic lecture of the year done. No disasters. The data projector behaved. The last slide popped onto the screen with one minute to go. I talked mostly good sense. Bits of explanation had a beginning, middle and end -- even sometimes in that order. Phew. After all these years, the first lecture is still nerve-racking. Piece of cake from now on.
But the lecture room doesn't look much like that picture (of a scene that should really gladden the heart of Steve Jobs). I noticed just one laptop -- odd, as I think a lot of our students have them, but they just haven't yet got into the habit of bringing them en masse to classes here. But give it another year or two ...
