Hello world!

I was surprised to find out that New Media is such a new course of study at the university. I understand that it started in 1992 but at that time it was not a full-fledged major. It took many years for the course to change from a very small grouping of classes to a minor and then it took a an even longer time for it to become a major. I do not really understand why it did not become a major when some students graduated with degrees in New Media that they created. That in it self would be a wake up call. Those students devoted themselves to making a major to graduate in, because they were so interested. If over two hundred people are taking the same minor, would that not be a clue that the interest is there? The fact that the hour I’ve come to call New Media only came into existence in 2000 is crazy. This major has only been around for ten years! To me that is mind-blowing. But in a way it makes sense. I understand that years ago most of the things we will be learning were impossible without the technologies that we have developed recently. So in a way it makes sense, it just took some one else to point it out.
