I'm a software engineer. I graduated from BU back in '03. I'm at BC now, doing my MBA (Asset Management, unrelated to CS).

What kind of engineer are you?
Also, what do you have in mind to use your MBA for?

My experience is that the problems with Collaboration are basic
problems with mesh networking, presumably in hardware, drivers, and
protocols. Collaboration is one of the most important features of
Sugar, but many teachers find it too frustrating to teach their
students about it in its unfinished state.
