As many of you know, I’m currently working on my Masters of Science in Integrated Digital Media from the Polytechnic Institute of NYU (which also happens to house my current employer where I’m the lead developer on a thing we call Betaville). I’m now starting my final semester of study during which I’ll be writing my thesis, which I’ll be defending some time in December as my final step before graduation.

Step one?  Write a proposal, which is what I’m starting on now.  This is a topic that’s weaved in and out of conversation with Betaville’s PI, Carl Skelton, for about a year now.  Barring the unforeseen, I’m proposing a study on geospatial information systems (GIS) and their potential for better, more mature, integration within the 3D space.  The topic is neither new, nor solved at this point, which makes it all the more interesting to me.  Words of wisdom, support, and suggestions are all totally welcome.  It’s also worth mentioning that I’m also looking for a job to start upon graduation (which would put a start date in January 2012).  If you have any leads, or want to hire me I’d appreciate you dropping me a line!
