I am thrilled to announce that I will be defending my dissertation, *From

Laptop Per Child, *at noon on May 6, 2013. The first portion of my defense
is a public talk and all are welcome to attend (and there will be food!).

https://plus.google.com/events/can6q664pea0ta5epvdhc7mqqes so I know how
much food to order and chairs to put out.

   - *What*: Morgan's dissertation defense
   - *When*: Monday, May 6, 2013, 12pm-1pm (public talk/questions)
   - *Where*: Mendenhall Library, 101a McClatchy Hall (building 120 in the

   yummy lunch stuff if you come to listen to my talk.

In addition to (or instead of) watching my defense, join me later that
