Are you a Cornellian? Do you work for the university? Teach on the Hill? If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you are Cornell.

During Reunions, my rag-tag bunch of friends and I happened to come across the I Am Cornell booth at the All-Alumni Affair. Urged-along by my friends, I soon found myself up on stage, avec my now infamous blazer, holding a sign that was written for me which didn't completely fulfill the spirit of either the I Am Cornell project or MetaEzra, because after all, this humble author is but one contributor to our fledgling blog, and you can barely read the 'I Am Cornell' text in my sign, which also says "and this blazer cost $20 on eBay".
Of course, this all occurred two months ago, but I'm only able to share the resulting picture with you now, dear reader, due to some bureaucratic hold-up that occurred between the University and the photo studio, Laughing Penguins. (Who take pretty nifty pictures, I should add.)
The Big Red Tape strikes again!
Looking through the Flickr pool, it's pretty clear that the project is off to a good start, but it definitely needs more diversity. To date, the pool features a lot of white alumni and professional staff. Not a lot of faculty. Nor are there a lot of faces of color. Where's the 'such diversity in one university' that we love and cherish?
The good news? If you take your own I Am Cornell picture from the comfort of your own home (and not a sweltering Barton Hall), you should be able to get it online pronto.
