In another delightful instance of "small world, huh?" I found out that Ian Haken, a friend of mine from TAMS, is also taking the same Computer Security course as I am. I didn't even know he was at Berkeley. The conversation went something like this:

Ian: "...yes, I am." *suspicious eyes*
Me: "Drew Fisher, TAMS class of '06."
Ian: *pauses* "You've got a lot more hair than you used to."
