The EMAC program helped me realize that there are countless opportunities for those willing to invest time in new media and taught me how to successfully interact with a networked world.
About James:James chose the EMAC program for his graduate work because of his interest in better understanding social media and experimenting with new forms of digital communication. For his Capstone project, James researched the relationship between organizational intelligence and networked intelligence in the United States. "The research focused on the impact of networked tools in a historically compartmentalized set of agencies and organizations. This included topics such as the networked intelligence database, Intellipedia, and the impact of newer offices like the Office of the Director of National Intelligence." After graduating, James began work for the Red Cross of Dallas as a Fleet and Facilities Coordinator.
