    Regarding USC bike registration… I thought this was already required, not sure if it’s a new thing. At least we all thought it was back when I was a student 2006-2010.

    And I know multiple people whose bikes were stolen and then recovered and returned to them because they were registered. In such a constrained environment, it’s actually a huge help and really effective, especially because it’s free and simple.

    For the most part, it makes sense. But what if I am just visiting campus and I lock my bike up. Does that mean I am subject to confiscation?

    Also it was great to meet you at Camp on Saturday.

    Pretty sure they just don’t think people would ever visit campus via bike. And those who might are the ones they want to keep out by locking the gates at night (a policy I firmly disagree with and have stated so in alumni survey after alumni survey, among other means).

    And yes, same to you! Saturday was fantastic.
