01.09.2003 – Monday 1 September – Spring
- • I woke up about the same time my train left, and had to do the traditional run and die to get to uni on time from the next train. Sometimes I notice how young the majority of first year uni students are – they’re still kids, just left home. During our “Intro to Information Systems” lecture, we were told we’d have to form groups of four for the second part of our “Intro to Information Systems” assignment, so I’ve formed a group with Matthew, Nick and Tim, who are both my age and happened to be sitting beside me – a few years can make quite a difference sometimes. They’re now added them to my MSN so we can collaborate electronically when and if any of us get around to working on the assignment – how high tech and exciting!
- • “A team of students had four members called Everybody, Somebody, Anybody and Nobody. There was an important job to be done. Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it. Somebody got angry about that because it was Everybody’s job. Everybody thought Anybody could do it but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn’t do it. It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done.” (Gibbs, 1995)
