Well, another semester has gone by… but not just any semester; it was my last semester at UC Berkeley. I’ve graduated! Again!
This time, it really all boiled down to my Master’s thesis, which is about creating a collaborative game on mobile phones for unschooled children in rural India. Quite different than what it was originally, but that’s how things go in the world of graduate school.
A lot of HCI (Human-Computer Interaction) theory and user interface work was put into CalMap. In lieu of any action on the CalMap front, I thought I’d introduce another blog I have created that chronicles my coursework in HCI-related courses. Many of these courses are taught in the School of Information at UC Berkeley (a.k.a. the “iSchool”), and that is where I’ll be posting:
Many of the posts there are required by the courses I’m taking, so you’ll see (forced) posts more often!
P.S. The downside of a blog hosted by the School of Information is that I am a lot more restricted server-wise. That is, I am not free to do things such as embed any old Flash object I want, like I can do here:
