I haven't updated this blog since my initial post months ago. I'm not yet at KAUST (I move in 10 days), but I am actively involved in several aspects of KAUST already, like helping students select fall courses and preparing materials for KAUST's big inauguration event. More and more concrete information about mundane matters keeps trickling in as well: housing assignments, grade schools, stores on campus (the first restaurant is a Pizza Hut...ugh).
I intend to start blogging here in earnest once I've relocated. Then things should get interesting.
