Interesting news. We received an email a few weeks back from Gary Hack inviting all students to a meeting about the future of PennDesign's home. I don't want to call it the new Meyerson Hall because it will surely have a different name, like Trump Golden T-Square Park or something. For years people have been speculating about a new Meyerson, but there was never a donor. Well, I guess they found a donor. We got another email today reminding us about the meeting and to let us know that Renzo Piano will be on hand to discuss his feasability study and take suggestions from students. RENZO PIANO!? We go from no new Meyerson to RENZO?! DAMN! I'll let you know if anything cool happens.
Today it was funny. We had presentations regarding our research. We had our TA and James Timberlake on the "jury" (Keiran and Timberlake don't usually come on the same day). A girl was researching connectivity and started discussing Second Life. Timberlake was cracking up and said "Sounds like No Life." The girl was (knowingly) calling the avitars dolls and saying how you can use fake money to buy clothes for your dolls. She really presented well and accurately, but no one could stop laughing because it just didn't even seem real. When she started talking about buying land, cars, and the exchange rate, no one could handle it. Good times.
