  • Filene Auditorium, Moore Hall, Dartmouth

Ge Wang, Assistant Professor at Stanford University, gave the Fall 2012 Donoho Colloquium October 1, 2012, at 5:00 PM in Filene Auditorium, Moore Hall. His topic, "Music, Computing, People: An Emerging Dimension for Engaging One Another Creatively, Expressively, and Socially," provided insight into his perspective that mobile computing devices have become natural extensions of ourselves. As such, they are reshaping how we engage one another, particularly through the creation and use of music. Professor Wang delighted the audience with a mini-concert using his iPhone, iPad and laptop.
