    New to Cyburbia

    Hi guys! I came here trying to find info on planning programs. I'd heard a little about cyburbia, but hadn't really explored. Anyways, I live in Brooklyn, and as you may have guessed from my username, play the banjo. I used to think I wanted to be a musician, but then I realized I could do that AND a real career that I find engaging! I'm tired of being a receptionist.

    I'm currently deciding between planning programs @ Pratt Institute and NYU Wagner. Why is this so difficult? I don't know. I also have no idea why more people don't apply to both. I posted a thread about it over in the student lounge already. Planning seems like a really small field, so it was a relief to see such a lively discussion over there about which programs folks were considering.

    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
