After 4 years at Cal, I've finally gotten to graduation. This past Wednesday, May 10th, was the Class of 2006 Commencement at the Greek Theater. It is supposed to be all majors attending, but in reality few people do attend. I was one of them. The commencement for the CS major is this coming Sunday, the 21st, so I'll post pictures of that after sometime.
One thing that did suck about our graduation though is that our speaker, Fabian Nunez, didn't show up. First of all, I wasn't too excited to hear from a California State Assembly speaker. I mean other schools get good speakers (Stanfurd with Steve Jobs, William and Mary with Jon Stewart). And since Cal is the best public university in the world, one would think that we could be able to pull someone worth listening to. Instead, we get this Fabian Nunez, who then doesn't even show up!. There were a handful of people outside the Greek Theater picketing, thus creating a "picket line" that Nunez couldn't cross. That is ridiculous and he just lost a vote for life. So we had our master of ceremonies give another speech instead. Thanks Fabian Nunez for making the commencement memorable for life, but not in a good way.
I graduated! My CS graduation happened yesterday and it was a good end to 4 years.
