What if the student list, itp help, all the alumni networks, and something like the media lab’s resume book existed for just ITP? For this week I made a super-low fidelity ITP craigslist to try it out. I checked out the craigslist model and html but significantly pared this down. It also occurred to me that for the stuff exchange especially, it would be useful to have a file upload.
Potentially useful elements
Useful elements of craiglist: community, personals, housing, jobs, for sale, services, gigs, resumes
Content of the ITP student listserv: questions, housing, midori announcements, tno
ITP facebook group(s): articles, parties, events, including workshops, alumni networks, jobs
Things that would be useful if they were more easily searchable: old tno videos, old thesis, media/press from ITP shows, everything that someone makes a random google doc for (useful pcomp materials, book exchange, etc), students blogs/instructions for something new to you that has been done before
It would be cool if it could also serve as aggregator of many things ITP students care about: news/blog roll (hackaday+fastcodesign,nyc/mit media labs, etc) roll, adafruit & sparkfun deals
