Are internships key for all students?

I've recently set myself on a mission to find company internships for as many of my HPU students as I possibly can.  While wrestling over what to put in courses of mobile, games, software engineering etc. I've come to the conclusion that students need internships the most out of anything we can offer.  Particularly in software engineering having students work on an internship and cross-over their intern work with class projects is a win-win-win :-)

Are Shared Skype Chats the new IRC?

I think almost everyone has heard of Skype for audio and video calls.  What some people are less aware of is that the text chat functionality can be used for persistent chatrooms like those available through IRC and other chat protocols.  Whether you've heard of IRC or not, you've surely heard of IM.  IRC is a text based protocol that supports very large chatrooms.  Anyone with a server can host multiple rooms and there are many highly active IRC servers still around.  There is huge traffic…

Help HPU Students learn "Real World" Spreadsheet and Database skills

I'm teaching a database/spreadsheet course at HPU this fall

to accounting/management grad students as well as the odd computer

scientist, and I have all this boring sample data from the textbook

regarding fictional ice-cream companies. Pretty tedious stuff. I had

this idea to re-create the data based on the "The Office" so all the

accounts/salespeople names would be taken from the show.

What I'd also really love to do is get some actual XL/access data… Continue

Hi Sam,

Since you are into Artificial Intelligence, I thought you might be into games development as well? My name is Gorm Lai, and I am one of the founders of the Global Game Jam, which takes place at companies and universities all over the world on the weekend of January 28th to 30th 2011. In 2010 we had 138 locations and 4300+ participants from all over the world. We are right now searching for a site in Hawaii for the 2011 event.

A game jam is basically a space where talented individuals, professionals, hobbyists and the new generation of game developers meet on common ground and work together in a fun and intense atmosphere of creativity and experimentation.

If this sounds interesting and you would like to help us find a site for the 2011 event, please let me know. Even if you don't think you have the time, but you might know someone who could be interested, please let me know.

You can see more about the global game jam here, and a fun YouTube video about it here

Apologies if this post reads like spam,

Hi Sam, How are you? I just referred a colleague to you regarding a question on Rails. I also joined your hackers group and hope to learn more on this topic. I am working on course material to teach Ruby on Rails. Please let me know of any good online resources you might have.

Hi Sam,

I've been visiting Virtual Manoa and have come up with a few questions.

1) Are there currently only two buildings? POST and Holmes. Does only the LILT lab have content?
2) How do I put up a PowerPoint poster like you have?
3) How do I put up a Web page poster like you have for Diane?
4) How do I put up my twitter status like Aaron and Phil?

That's all for now.

Given your interest in natural language learning tools you might be interested in this blog post about Gabe Morris's Yabla website. Its an impressive web app.

E Komo Mai! The more I use this platform, the more I am impressed.

I'm definitely going to try deploying some custom features, possibly using the OpenSocial API.

BTW - Feel free to invite others :-) This only becomes interesting when we hit a certain critical mass.
