Beginning to speed up

At the beginning of the day today Bob gave all of us a challenge; a word we had to unscramble. Turns out that the word was intrapreneurship. Intrapreneurship is defined as entrepreneurship within large companies, and can be applied to any big organization that is forward thinking and comes up with new, profitable ideas. Like RIT.

Other than that today was another day spent prepping for the data collection fly-by which has now been tentatively set for Thursday. This, however =, might change because we are the backup plan for a team in another location. If the weather is nice they are going to do their collect before ours. I made some Excel spreadsheets for Nina listing all the targets that require asd data, this way it will be easier to keep track of which ones we have done. Earlier in the morning we also went onto the roof to check some things out. Not only was the view awesome but we worked out a basic communication system using two different-colored tarps that we will hang off the side of the building. Along with all of this the RS interns and I are going to see a thesis defense tomorrow morning, after that we have another field-trip in the afternoon (this time to the University of Rochester), and the day will finish with some volleyball outside the building. So much is happening in such a small amount of time!
