Code to Joy: The School for Poetic Computation Opens – NYTimes.com

What a wonderful name for a school!  It will be interesting to see what is created at this new school.

The school’s motto? “More poems less demos.”

A start-up venture in its own right, the school has 15 students enrolled for fall, selected from a pool of 50 applications, who will not receive any formal credit, but will pay about $5,000 to spend 10 weeks tinkering, building and tweaking projects of their own design.

“People are coming from a programming background, and thinking, how do I make art with these skills? Things that are whimsical? Dreams?” said Zach Lieberman, one of the school’s four founders and instructors, who has taught at the Parsons School of Design and like his collaborators, has one foot in the technology world and another in the art world.

    I guess that they aren’t teaching English usage at the school, given the use of “less” instead of “fewer” in their motto. $5000 seems like a lot to pay for 10 weeks of play. That’s 3.5 years of Tech Shop membership (5 years for a student).

    Taking 20 Tech Shop classes (at $60–100 each) and a year’s membership still comes to less than $5000.
