I know I’m running late this week. The weekend was crazy. You don’t want to know about my troubles getting home from SIGCSE over the weekend. On the fun side, yesterday was Pi day (3.14) so don’t forget that a pizza of radius "z" and of thickness "a" has volume = pi*z*z*a You can groan now. Here now a few links to get your week started

@anitaborg_org reminds us that SF Bay Area young women grades 9-12 NCWIT Award for Aspirations in Computing applications due April 2. Also in Portland OR.

Yeah, not a lot this week. But I have ideas for a bunch of posts based on things I heard at SIGCSE so the rest of the week should be more interesting.
