"1) Lack of socialization within the major. I find that oftentimes my only exposure to my peers is during occasional group projects. Other than this, I don't find that collaborating with others is something I do often because there are often…"

"What are three good things that the UH ICS program is providing for its students?
Opportunities local to the state of Hawaii. These include employer contacts, hackathons, and internships.
A curriculum tailored for various pathways in ICS.
"1. Professors, TAs, ATAs/LAs, and other computer science majors are happy to help.
2. Gerald is a great advisor!
3. Getting to take 400-level computer science-related courses in other departments and have them count as ICS 400 electives."
Areas of Interest (Robotics, Software Architecture, Green Energy, Web 2.0, etc.):
Software Language Proficiencies / Interests:
I am a professor of Information and Computer Sciences at the University of Hawaii. My current research and development interests focus on software for the smart grid and created sustained, positive change in energy-related behaviors.
I think it would also be a step toward better integration and synergy between the UH and local tech community. For example, there's a talk coming up on the use of Facebook in the 2009 election that I think would be of interest to techhui people.
I agree. We just added an RSS feed for ICS News & Announcements to the front page between Forums and Groups. We also added "Facebook Use in the 2008 Presidential Election" to the calendar and featured the event. If there are events of particular importance you want to feature just shoot me an email. We can place them in the event calendar and give them special mention in the "Site Info, Announcements & Things To Do" column.
I'm a big advocate of teaching foundations and theory. Software and hardware come and go and usually can be picked up quickly. Learning how systems work, art theory, the sociology/psychology of UI, that's priceless.
(2) In one of your previous postings, you spoke about friends going on tour with the Dead. I happen to play occasionally with a local Grateful Dead style jam band called Shakadown Street:
Do you play music? Would you like to come jam with us sometime?
A partner of ours, Atlassian, has been building and acquiring a lot of tools in the code collaboration space including monitoring and review management. These include FishEye - for monitoring source code, Clover - for improving test quality, productivity, & project integration of code coverage, and Crucible for reviewing code changes, making comments, & recording outcomes. The tools are free for open source projects. If you have folks working on Hackystat and Jupiter, they may want to take a look for research purposes.
