EXTRA CREDIT! Go fill out the Final Survey now available in WebCT. You get 1 point on your Final Exam grade for EACH question answered, total possible 5 points. All answers are anonymous–WebCT just gives me a list of who did it, and a list of all answers. Mark Guzdial

Folks, the things you've done in 1315 and 1316 – collages, animations, music – would be terrific to show. Would you consider being part of this? Please contact David ASAP if you are! This is the first time we've involved undergrad students, and we're eager to show the participants what great work you're doing. It's a terrific opportunity for some important future contacts.

Interactivity @ GT, the February 17 student showcase, is just this week, and we already have a record number of industry attendees confirmed. I cannot urge you strongly enough to make the most of this opportunity to show off your work.

We have had this annual showcase for HCI and IDT graduate students since 2002 – I participated in the first two! – and many students have made connections that have led to internships and full-time jobs. Employers are coming this year with the same thing in mind for CM students.

The showcase leads to jobs. The jobs help build our the reputations of our programs and our students. Which lead to bigger showcases. Which lead to more jobs. You get the idea. :-)

Before you decide to stop reading this long e-mail, let me try to hold your attention with a partial list of confirmed attendees:
Ant Farm Interactive
Avenue A/Razorfish
Big Spaceship
Cingular Wireless
Cox Communications
Elemental Interactive
General Dynamics Viz (formerly Maya Viz)
Georgia Public Broadcasting
Macquarium Intelligent Communications
Pandemic Media
Rival Industries
Turner Broadcasting
U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
User Insight
Walt Disney Imagineering
Yahoo Research
(more to come)

Any work you have done under the supervision of a CM, HCI, or IDT professor – as independent study, or as a group or individual class project – is a potential poster and/or demo. If you aren't sure about whether a particular project would be good for the showcase, ask the professor who supervised you.

I particularly encourage the CM students to demo something. Several companies are coming from the West Coast to attend the showcase for the first time, partly because of the growing reputation of CM, and we want them to come back next year. Don't think that your work has to be perfect. The industry attendees are coming to see talent and enthusiasm that are still growing.

Even if you don't have anything to demo, you can benefit by looking closely at the work and presentation skills of more senior students. And, as usual, we will have talks by several of our industry guests.

Oh, and breakfast at the undergraduate session. Lunch at the grad-student session.

One last note: We have a LOT of posters to print, and only two printers, so don't wait until the last minute to get started.

I'll be sending more messages over the weekend, so watch this space. :-)

I forgot some fixes to the files for java-source this semester.
  1. Please download this file:
  2. Unzip/expand it
  3. Put all the files in it into your java-source folder. (Go ahead and overwrite the files already there.)
Thanks! Mark Guzdial
