Okay, so maybe the intro MIS class won't be as awful as I thought. Turns out it's all internet delivered, so I can self pace through it as fast as the prof will put out the assignments.

One of the projects will be a little intro programming piece. He said to not be afraid of it, as some of the class gasped, it'll be a program written in Alice. Turns out that most of the class are all from other majors picking it up for an 'easy' ellective.

Alice though? My ears perked up. What is Alice I wondered? Today I did a quick google for Alice and turned up http://www.alice.org/

How did I miss this beauty? It's been around for 10 years now, though with it being Carnegie Mellon I'm sure it's been mostly directed towards educators alone for the first part of its life. A 3d programing language that makes it easy to create animation/storytelling?

You can create more models for the environment if you know, or have a friend that does, 3d studio max. Look over here for more info on the 3d studio max part.. http://www.aliceprogramming.net/models/index.html

This is made of coolness.
