So this is the third semester I have spent trying to get the school to offer some avenue for me to learn skills associated with building interactive installations. Since last semester they have purchased the software and hardware components, but due to a combination of lack of knowledge and lack of need (and lack of persistance in lobbying on my part) there still hasn’t been a class that offers such opportunities. I have taken things into my own hands this semester and talked to the head of the program that I am in and am now doing an independent studies this semester. Time has proven that if you really want to do something you kinda need to be a bugger about things… but politeness counts.
I need to keep remembering the point though
- is to do my project - and not get totally sidetracked and in love with learning—like I have with the web.
Keep it simple stupid! :P
