Chris Wilson makes the call with authority. The ball is in bounds, he indicates as he points down the line with his index fingers. One of two linesmen at a Cal State Northridge women's volleyball match, Wilson is easily the youngest of four officials working the match. He is a high school senior.

True confession: I sometimes (OK, fine, often) waste a lot of time on dumb stuff. Which probably explains my interest in Twitter. You undoubtedly heard that Twitter had its IPO (that's initial public offering for non-business-school types) Thursday. It went well, as The Times reported : “Twitter sold 70 million shares at $26, raising $1.82 billion, making it the largest IPO from a U.S. technology company since Facebook last year.” It also went well for the Big Tweets at Twitter, with the stock owned by cofounder Evan Williams, the company's biggest individual shareholder, worth $2.56 billion based on Thursday's closing price.

A new era begins Tuesday at USC. Steve Sarkisian, who was hired in December, will oversee his first spring workout as the Trojans' coach. The tumult that marked the 2013 season - the Trojans were playing for their third head coach when they defeated Fresno State in the Las Vegas Bowl, with a fourth (Sarkisian) already hired - has been replaced by optimism as the team prepares for a 2014 schedule that includes home games against Fresno State, Oregon State, Arizona State, Colorado, California and Notre Dame and road games at Stanford, Boston College, Arizona, Utah, Washington State and UCLA.
