129 Wallace

by Eszter Hargittai on June 28, 2006

No thanks to Jim Gibbon for siphoning off a few hours of my time today with that Gapminder pointer. Nonetheless, I wanted to send him a shoutout and welcome him to blogging seeing that he comes from a bit of Crooked Timber lineage. Kieran and I shared an office for a couple of years while in graduate school at Princeton. And it is in this same office that Jim now spends a good chunk of his graduate student days (granted, right now he’s doing summer research in Germany). Welcome to blogging, Jim!

To try to decipher what it is about 129 Wallace Hall that leads to all this blogging, you can check out a light switch, a chair component, a scooter, part of the wall, parts of the building and its door for clues on this collage – all the product of an afternoon when I didn’t feel like working on my dissertation. Those were the days… You think you have no time in grad school, but then you become faculty and all that blogging, taking pictures and surfing the Net… oh, never mind.

“I wanted to send him a shutout…” Watching too much well-pitched baseball, or inadvertently drop the “o”? &lt/nitpicking>

Definitely not watching too much baseball as I’m not watching any. My exposure is limited to riding by Wrigley Field on a regular basis and watching proud White Sox fans sport their jerseys across town.

uh, this doesn’t strike you as a little cliquish, a little Princeton-o-centric? What’s next, photos of P-rade?

(Though actually, Princeton’s annual alumni parade really is ripe for the scrutiny of professional students of sociology–and sociopathy.)

Just doin’ my part to keep the tradition alive. Thanks for the shoutout!

OB – I don’t think it’s that shocking or rare that people who attend graduate school together click and get along well. I attended more than one grad school so it made sense to specify to which one I was referring here.

Grey seems to have been the theme color at Princeton that year.
