Jorge Cham's Australian tour

I'm just back from a presentation by Jorge Cham, the creator of the graduate school themed webcomic Piled Higher and Deeper, who is currently on his Australian tour. I clean forgot that he was talking today, and was kicking myself for not claiming a seat ticket, but luckily there were a few spares. I thought it was clearly worthwhile to listen to a guy who has both completed a Ph.D. and published a webcomic, two things I really need to do myself in the next six months.

Overall I thought the talk went great. Jorge seems like a pretty cool guy, I spent every dollar I had on me on comic books for signing, the Ph.D. student in me was pleased at the free food, and the engineering undergraduate still in me was pleased with the free booze. I'm not sure his theme of "procrastination is okay" is the best for a grad student in the throws of a massive thesis write-up, but it still went down well with the audience. I also learnt how to pronounce "Jorge", which isn't as obvious as the letters suggest. All in all a great talk, and incentive for me to get cracking on my own digital penmanship skills.
