What a wonderful surprise! Reading about Google’s Marissa Mayer — I have this obsession in which I obsess for days about certain people — I found out she got a BS in Symbolic Systems in Stanford. That’s right, there is such a thing! I’m shaking with excitement. I’m reading the career description online but my eyes just keep pushing ahead. It’s a weird mixture of “artificial intelligence, computer science, cognitive psychology, linguistics, philosophy, and symbolic logic.” Even “human-computer interaction” is thrown into the mix. I mean, a degree with * symbol* in its title! Could you possibly ask for more?
All the more reason to visit Stanford this May 13!
