Bogu Giertler
Born in the land of poets, vodka and science, a young Pole named Bogo Giertler ventured into Colby taking a two-year-long detour at the United World College of the Adriatic, in Italy. At Colby, Bogo became a fierce debater, a stock-market broker and an amateur filmmaker. This Computer Science and Mathematics major is devout to his secret project of taking over the world using an army of robotic minions he obsessively constructs in the Robotics Lab at Bobs. When this finally happens, Bogo will rule the world from his yacht at Canary Islands. Of course, he will make a Confluence wiki about it, set up a WordPress blog to record what happens, and then give classes on robot democracy with Moodle at hand. So shoot him an e-mail, if you want these things explained real good.Bogo specializes in Moodle, Confuence and WordPress projects.

Gustav-100Gustav Gordon I am Carl Gustav Gordon, currently a sophomore here at Colby College. I am from Copenhagen, Denmark; however, I have spent the most part of the past four years abroad. I went to an international high school in Norway (Red Cross Nordic United World College), and upon graduation I travelled to Sierra Leone partly to assist the initiation of a malaria research program, but also to provide humanitarian relief to a hospital in the northern part of the country. After I returned to Denmark, I have worked on a specific venture project named G#Net which mission is to optimize usage of bed-netting for malaria prevention. I have also been involved in other projects with more or less humanitarian focus.
Now I am here at Colby College majoring in Economics and Mathematics, and possibly minoring in Administrative Science.Gustav is a general support student tutor.

haolu-100Haolu Wang Haolu “Lulu” Wang
Being a senior and double-major in economics & government, she feels bittersweet about having to take 20 credits in the last semester and yet enjoys talking about civil society and democratization.
Oh and she is obsessed with astrology and has recently developed a strong interest in blood types. Please tell her your zodiac sign and blood type when you meet her so that she wouldn’t need to spend the next hour guessing your zodiac profile.
At ITS, she maintains the Stu technology blog. Please contact her if you are tech-savvy and willing to contribute.

Jay-100Jay My name is Jay. I am a senior with major in Economics and minor in Math. I studied at University College London last Spring. It was pretty awesome living in London (much better than anywhere in the US), but the education is bad bad bad. Colby is still better. Anyway, I can help you with Common Spot, WordPress and Moodle. Jay is a general support tutor.

Kent-100 Kent Monma is a full-fledged Kiwi from Auckland (New Zealand), who has decided to pursue the exactness of physics and the fickleness of economics at Colby. He is known to be extremely elusive when the weather is good, due to his impulses to play rugby, to Sugarloaf, and to just chill with friends outside. So please seek for him when it’s frigid or pouring, and you’re most likely to find him in ITS complaining that it’s summertime in the Southern Hemisphere.
Kent is a general support tutor who will be taking over FileMaker Pro support in second semester.

Nirakar100Nirakar Yo, I am Nirakar from Kathmandu, Nepal. You don’t know, where is it? Look at the map then. If you find it difficult to pronounce my name, just remember the sentence, ‘I need a car. Then take the I off and pronounce it again. This drill will help you remember my name. I am a sophomore majoring in Maths and Physics. I love all kinds of sports and I am a big fan of Barcelona, England soccer team, Pakistani cricket team, San Antonio Spurs, Boston Red sox, Patriots and England Rugby team.  I like discussing about politics, religion and race. I want to pursue my career in Physics and understand more about the universe. The three things I enjoy the most are cultural differences, getting cultural shocks and shocking other cultures. ’ I believe in Gandhi’s philosophy. So if you slap on my right cheek, I will offer you another. I recently got my Ph.D on Moodle from VIT (Virtual Institute of Technology). So if you need any help, just drop by. We will have fun.Nirakar is a general support tutor.

MrV-100Rath Meas I am Mr.V, although my real name is Vichetrath, which many people find it is hard to pronounce. I am an Economics/Computer Sciences major. I am from the very little unknown country of Cambodia and I am the first generation at Colby! I am really crazy about computers. I formatted my own PC eight times in the first week that I got it and I learned a lot from it. I used all unlicensed applications that I got from the street in Cambodia. I am passionate about Web design and the idea of open-source applications. I fix people’s computers for free if they approach me! I also like adventurous travelling; I discovered six countries during my two years in Norway. I went to all six of them within a month with only 700 Euro. My next plan is to travel in the US. I like Rock climbing, Skiing, Skating and Hiking.
