1. Everyone who signed up for the AINYC Text Messaging service received a text regarding last night's guest speaker Anna Dokza, Producer for HBO Fight of the Concords and Bored to Death. Both Wednesday night sections of Visual Storytelling were in attendance. According to the dean, the conversation was lively and many great questions were asked. My apologies for not posting the event on the blog. Anna was rescheduled late on Tuesday evening. The dates and times for Rich Hunt and Don Argott will be posted as the dates get closer. Many thanks to everyone who atteneded!
2. A few students stopped by my office the past few days asking about the new computers in the 5th floor open labs (7 Mac Pros on the right hand side wall). I understand that some students are concerned these computers will be used by students outside of the DF and VP departments at busy times (mid quarter and finals). At this time, the technology department is overwhelmed with responsiblites and cannot properly police the open lab. The best advice I can give you guys is to maintain open communication. Ask fellow students if they can move to another computer or an open lab if they are not using FCP or Final Draft. At this stage, we have to rely on the honor code. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel stop by my office or e-mail me. I'll be happy to answer any questions or address concerns.
Thanks! - Eve.
