Bob tells me he will taking a few weeks off (hopefully the weather will soon actually start to resemble Spring), deliver some lectures, and take up some of the many invitations he's received to become involved in various STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Education initiatives, which were a major focus of Barack Obama's State of the Union speech earlier this year. Just about everyone talks about the central importance of getting more young Americans educated and involved in these fields. For decades, Bob has been doing something about it.
He says he's not actively looking for another full-time gig right now, but he's still available for consulting, and if you need to get ahold of him, let me know and I'll pass it on.
Just reading all the things Bob is involved in leaves me exhausted, so I think it's only appropriate to illustrate this post with one of Bob's shots of a beautiful sunrise over the Chicago river.
