Today I picked up my University of Texas at Austin ID card. Yes I’m now a Texas Longhorn. The Center for Identity here is teaming up with the Information School to offer a Masters of Science in Identity Management and Security and I’m enrolled in the first cohort of students.
It’s getting meta here with the @UTcenterforID and the new @UTasMSIMS we got out IDs today from UofT. pic.twitter.com/zXL7gxEZOc

I’m not moving to Texas though. It’s a part time program, one weekend a month and I’m going to fly here to participate in classes.
Today we had an overview of the 10 classes that make up the program, learned about some of the different research happening at the iSchool and the Center for Identity.
I wasn’t expecting this but we got a full tour of the football stadium, saw a bunch of statues of players and coaches and learned all about the team and the lore. It reminded me of the first week I had at Cal and the feeling I had that week knowing I would be a Golden Bear for life (I was a student athlete though so there was a whole other layer to the experience).
I will be blogging about what we are up to.
