To paraphrase Coleridge: Water, water everywhere, / Nor any time to think.
Two weeks ago. Quiet Wednesday night on the UMD campus. Almost 6pm.
Viz Lab/MMAD Lab (emerging visual technologies and techniques and Motion and Media Across Disciplines) director Lisa Fitzpatrick is still at work, helping a student pull a paper together.
Then, without warning ... water starts rushing into the lab - threatening a million or so dollars worth of equipment.
