Jake Szemanski Media Internship

What have you learned so far?

I have learned a lot about the history of the internet and some specific technologies.  It has really given me an appreciation for what we have now and an awe for what is to come.

What kind of skills have you begun to develop?

Mainly blogging.  Just being able to find a topic that I don’t know a lot about, then researching and writing about it.  I also scratched the surface on some technologies that have led to ideas for future projects, like the idea that I had for a mobile gaming device.  However, the one overriding skill that this internship helped me hone was the ability to give structure to something that is relatively ambiguous.  I feel that this might be one of the most important skills to learn in any profession.
