    Laura was one of my multimedia students, bright and very memorable. Remember Communicating on the Internet, Multimedia Production. Playing Quake in the Lowell Thomas Lab?



    Laura, email me at anthony.pennings@nyu.edu when you get a chance. I want to talk to you about our new digital game production concentration and pick your brains a bit on our digital game programming classes, texture and level design as well as our interface with the Computer animation degree. Too bad about G4 cutting back on it's tech and gaming shows. Unfortunately I have had to cut back on viewing their programming accordingly. All the best in your career.moreless
