HCII week two: uh, equally manic?

Weird. I feel like a different person here. The kind of person who has all the energy to do all those things that I wish I could do if I had all that energy.

Becoming an expert: a lot of these tips (but not all of them) seem to be summarized by “beginner’s mind.” Stay humble and eager!
