My Charles on the computer

I am excited to share with you that the Charles River Conservancy's “River Stories III” book is now out. The book is a collection of memoirs, poems, reflections, and artwork about the Charles River by local writers and artists. It celebrates the Charles River Parklands, and the experiences and memories of those who cherish them. I contributed a chapter “My Computerized Charles River“, where I share some of my personal feelings about the river and our work to help make it swimmable. It was a real pleasure to work on this piece, because it was so different from the other type of writing I typically do (i.e. technical journal articles). Here is a link to the book.
