My friend Mike D has just finished all of his work completing a master's degree in library science!!! That's Mr. Shush, M.S., to you all now.
Mike and I have been friends since (he remembers) Super Bowl weekend 1998, which is another reason to post around now. In the days before mass use of e-mail, we exchanged lots of cards and he once wrote, "I wonder when we'll stop having the 'one of us is unemployed' conversation!" Despite his degree and massive computer skills, the 2000 recession wiped out a lot of those jobs, including a couple of his.
Not one to give up, he decided to combine his love of technology and books and get his library science master's degree. He did this with a full-time job, ridiculous prerequisite requirements, and a lot of determination. Feel free to drop by his blog and give him your congratulations!
I plan on doing so in person, with cheesecake, this summer, even if I have to take the train up to Connecticut.
