honoris causa

Tomorrow, a tremendous honour will be bestowed upon me by Seneca College. I’m grateful and flattered to the point of speechlessness, which may pose a problem as I deliver the convocation address tomorrow.

Thanks are due to many people for the wonderful time I’ve had working with Seneca, but one person stands out even in that sea of achievement and dedication: Dave Humphrey, without whom there would truly be no Mozilla@Seneca, and who is a great friend in addition to the best teacher I’ve ever had the pleasure of watching in action.

    Congrats, Mike! Deeply deserved. And, tip of the iceberg. I think the Seneca + Mozilla has alot to offer educators and budding developers around the world.

    Congratulations, Mike. Well deserved, I know. Have fun, and yeah, don’t cry during your speech! :)

    Aven: boy, did I ever cry during my speech! It all went quite well though, and of course I had the time of my life.

    Rocking! What else can I say?

    Excellent! Congrats from the rest of the Coopers – you’ve been amazing us all for many years – it’s about time someone officially recognized that wonderful mind.
