JHU begins

I'm writing this from the computer lab at JHU's CSLP.

With any luck, I'll be able to get my computer on the network by sometime tomorrow, but for now I'm logged into one of the super-expensive Solaris machines here.

This morning's lecture by Chris Manning (he of Statistical Natural Language Processing) was illuminating, although he was covering both the very basic and the intermediate/difficult parts of NLP, so some parts were boring and other parts were very advanced.

More later...
