Great summer help!

TJ (Matt’s intern) is off to a great start helping in the office. He’s already helped add some new data to the maps to show the locations of several varieties of sign languages around the world. He’s also helping to improve the quality of our map data by finding where shapes on the maps are not consistent with their neighbors and helping us develop an automated procedure to get those corrected. I’m so glad to have this extra help that will make our finished maps even better yet!

Jay’s corner

Well, Jay is now a 5th grade graduate! He came home with awards for perfect attendance, A/B honor roll, the principal’s award for his home room, and future president award from his homeroom teacher. So proud of him! Now it’s time for some summer fun including attending camp, going swimming and spending time with friends.
