school is rad!  
I think I've figured out what my graduate research can be on:
Computers in the schools, and how to get teachers to understand their resources better, especially with regards to immagrant students, and understanding the internet and it's resources.
and then going to schools and getting a grant to do research that would both teach teachers how to use their computer resources, but also see where deficent areas are, and then write about how to fix them.

I want to make a play for my final senior project. I want to write about an immagrants experience in japan, and about all the social taboos that are not adressed in school overtly, and the main character will have a socially unfunctional grasp about it. things like the swastika is evil, even though the kanji "manji" looks the same, and has a different meaning. also, things like how you don't talk about pearl harbor in front of a japanese decendent, and you don't describe black people as "black" but you're like "the one with the newest shoes" stuff like that. that is my idea. and stuff.

yes. It makes me want to be a better programmer, because there are so many teacher<=> communication issues that could be solved with realitivly simple XML and what not.
Maybe I can enlist ravi and kevin type people to program. I mean, it's not like they're gonna get a job anywhere else with programming skills. Especially in todays technophobe society.
