Hope Greenberg: Personal Page (?)

It's work, it's school, it's life. Where does the official end and the personal begin. I don't know. It's a web! My ancient main web sites can be accessed through Hope Hall for the Humanties.

My Appointment Calendar

Personal Data from our campus directory

I am currently a Humanities Computing Specialist in the Academic Computing department of Computing and Information Technologies at the University of Vermont. Came from SUNY at Stony Brook's School of Medicine (several years as a systems support person and before that, in the pre-personal computer days, a financial/budgeting number cruncher type). Here is a semi-formal resume/vita as well as my Graduate Student Portfolio.

Latest project:

Virtual Electronic Text Center and the truly experimental version at my server

Favorite listening: Anonymous 4, Gothic Voices, Machaut, certain operas.

Used to play the flute and sing but that's on hold for a bit due to work, school, two great kids. Also have done historic and other kinds of costuming--might even do more some day!

There is also a link to my personal record in the UVM database.

Not to forget the many faces of Hope.

My how the Web has grown. The first Web server at UVM was installed in 1993. While cleaning out files I found this relic dated November 11, 1993: an early attempt at an imagemap. (It doesn't work now since I have long since thrown out the supporting files!) Another early Web page I developed that said something more than just "Welcome to my page" was dated 9/23/94. It's a document with pictures of campus buildings with accompanying text (the pictures were taken with the then new Apple QuickTake camera). The document, originally posted to UVM.TODAY in response to a question, is a history of how several buildings on campus got their names.

Any Center Moriches High School or C. W. Post alumni out there who knew Hope Roesch? That's me. Say Hi, OK?
