So: As a result of a dialogue sparked by Josh Rosenau, I now find myself in tiny Hays, Kansas, pop. 20,000, where I’m here to give a talk today at Fort Hays State University. Other than, like, Kansas City, I have never been in Kansas before that I can remember. I flew here in a turboprop. And it’s about time: All too often my travels, especially for talks, have been essentially bi-coastal. There’s a big country in the middle, though, and quite a lot that I’ve missed–including some great people, like the folks from Hays, who I’ve had the pleasure of hanging out with a bit already.
So today, I start making up for my previous geographical biases in travel. Up next: Nebraska….I hope.
