    hello!

    Hi all! I'm really excited about joining the group! I've been peeking around some of the discussions and I really like all the great insight and the occasional "chaff"! I'm a young professional in construction considering a move into urban planning and development. I am thinking about going back to school for a masters, although from some of the discussions I've read, it seems like planning is in as much turmoil as construction is. In any case, my favorite video game is Sim City and I don't want to have to build the same half-baked and out-of-place office complex for the rest of my life, so I thought I might be among like-minded people? Looking forward to being part of the group and contributing where I can. I may have some questions about schools and programs so I'll check out the students forum as well. Happy Friday!

    Welcome from the Great State of Ohio! I would guess many around here loved Sim City and found a nice way to parlay that into a job. Good work on joining on a Friday! Enjoy!

    Hello, from Dallas, TX!
    "We do not need any other Tutankhamun's tomb with all its treasures. We need context. We need understanding. We need knowledge of historical events to tie them together. We don't know much. Of course we know a lot, but it is context that's missing, not treasures." - Werner Herzog, in Archaeology, March/April 2011
