[bksvol-discuss] Re: Wish List

Hey Cindy,
    Masters, Ph.D? I'm looking at a Masters at this point and telling myself
to decide on the Ph.D later on, especially since its only been a year. But
it would be very cool to program for the future versions of BookShare. Even
an internship would be neat.
    Trip to Chicago...for numerous reasons I didn't make it unfortunately.
I shall be seeing nearly everyone though in about a week. Would have been
definite fun to get out of Peoria for a day or two though.

Best,
Jake
