Accepted to NYU

Well, to some of you it may not be news anymore, but I’ve been accepted to the Interactive Telecommunications Program at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts for graduate school. Excellent.

And, it a fit of particularly good timing, I’ve also been laid off from BMC, so I’ll be picking up a bit of severance and will be able to travel during the summer. Again, excellent news.

So far, it really couldn’t have worked out any better.

Anyway. April may be my last full month in Austin. I’ll miss it, but the change will be healthy. It’s gotten to the point where I know every crag in the sidewalk around here and, well, I know there are bigger, better, more interesting crags to be found elsewhere…

So off I go…

Update: I forgot to mention… The creative portfolio I submitted can be found here.

I was wondering if Clay Shirky was there, and sure as shit he is. Are you gonna get/want to take some of his classes? His writings and talks always seem interesting and on point.

Yeah, I'm kinda familiar with Mr. Shirky and his writings. I really don't know what classes I'll be taking yet, but I think he'd probably be a good lecturer.

Douglas Rushkoff is also a prof at ITP, by the way.

Anyway, it's obviously a very webby crew on the whole. I've noticed the letters "ITP" popping up all over now that I know about the program...
