I attended the Michigan State University Dr. MLK Jr. Community Dinner and heard from Trustees Ferguson and Owen and President Simon. I also learned more about the new exhibit at the MSU Museum with children letters to Rosa Parks and President Nelson Mandela.
Here is a video of President Barack Obama introducing the exhibit:
I plan to take a trip down to the museum soon. The exhibit will run until December 2010.
For lunch I met with @joshpremuda at the Travelers Club International Restaurant and Tuba Museum in Okemos. Josh is working on some side projects and we got to talking about starting a tech group in the Lansing area.
I went to my first Detroit Java User Group meeting and saw Mac Liaw give a presentation on Scala. The conversation was great and there were many in-depth questions asked. I was happy that the presentation wasn’t too beginner focused. The questions led the discussion for most of the time.
