I achieved a B.S in Information Systems with a Minor in (Cultural) Anthropology and History.
My studies involved computer science courses, software design courses, team-based software projects, and project management courses. I once wrote an anthropology seminar paper called "An Experience in Digital Ethnography: The Online Culture of Asheron's Call".
I definitely had some peak experiences at CMU, these among them:
. Learning about the historical context around computers and computing at CMU from Dr. James Tomayko (renowned expert on NASA's digital fly-by-wire technology)
. Meeting Dr. Herb Simon (Nobel Prize winner, Economic Sciences, for his pioneering research into the decision-making process within economic organizations)
. Meeting and conversing with Jaron Lanier (a founding father of Virtual Reality)
. Crawling through steam tunnels to sneak a peek at the simulated Mars environment (lol)
. Exposure to the Entertainment Technology Center (learned how to build virtual worlds without taking Building Virtual Worlds)
. Taking the Green Visions, Grey Infrastructure course with Reiko Goto and Tim Collins
