I just finished teaching a class in Physical Computing for Artists at a summer arts program at the St. Andrews school in Sewanee TN called "Shakerag".  What a terrific place and program!  An intensive week of work - with very hard working and dedicated students - and what is really interesting to me is that they are including technology based classes in with the other more traditional craft based areas - linking these kinds of "process" oriented activities together. This is something that I have long identified with, and is  also a connection made by Richard Sennett and others.  Anyway, a fantastic week - and a great program, and a really great vibe overall. I would recommend it highly!
