I am pleased to announce that Donna Carter has accepted the position of Multimedia Specialist in Academic Computing, to replace Victor Haseman who will be leaving Stanford in mid-January. Her office is in the Academic Technology Lab on the second floor of Meyer.

I know many of you have had the pleasure of working with Donna in the ATL in her former position as one of the Multimedia Consultants. I'm delighted that she has taken this permanent position. She has been and will continue to be a real asset to the AComp team!

Please extend a warm welcome to Donna the next time you visit Meyer!

I'd like to officially welcome Dana Sheikholeslami to Academic Computing as a full-fledged staff member effective immediately. His new job is the Multimedia Systems Specialist, in charge of all hardware and software needs for the ATL/Multimedia Studio and Language Lab. Dana is now one of three staff who report to me in the Technical Support team, which also consists of John Chao (residential clusters and Mac model volume) and Frank Artusa (Meyer/Tresidder clusters and PC model volumes).

Dana has been working for Residential Computing since early June in a student position. During that time, he created a comprehensive Macintosh model volume for all parts of Academic Computing, and it's been a smashing success. John Chao will assume this responsibility, as Dana will focus on the above facilities and their special support needs. Dana comes to us from Penn State where he participated in the design, implementation, and support of new multimedia computing facilities.

Please join me in welcoming Dana to our excellent team.
