-A venture-some crew headed off the [MIT Glass Lab](http://web.mit.edu/glasslab/) last week. In the basement, off've of the Infinite--or more accurately, directly below the Infinite, the Glass Lab is an odd corner of things over here. I'd assumed that it was a hold-over from the days when chemistry departments blew their own glass and the like, but it's apparently not. I forget the details, but it's folded into the materials science department, I believe. There is a much coveted lottery every semester, where a lucky dozen or-so get a chance to learn the craft. I've missed every opportunity, unfortunately.

+The Glass Lab is something apart at MIT. Less lasers, more 15th-century Italian glassblowing. I'd assumed that it was a hold-over from the days when chemistry departments blew their own glass and the like, but I believe it comes from the materials' science department, or some such. There is a much coveted lottery every semester, where a lucky dozen or-so get a chance to learn the craft. I've missed every opportunity, unfortunately. Alas.
