ORG Rice University Title BIO William Deigaard is currently the Director of Networking, Telecommunications, and Data Centers, at Rice University. This group deals primarily with educational technology systems, but also designs, develops, and maintains many other core campus systems and projects. William Deigaard has been both a student and a staff member at Rice University. He arrived in the Fall of 1988, majored in English and Computer Science, started working as a Unix systems administrator, graduated in '93, and has continuted to work for Rice ever since. An advisor described Computer Science as, "problem solving with the computer as a tool." This sounded pretty good to William, and has led to a a more general approach of problem solving with technology as a tool." William's primary interests have do do with communication systems, information delivery systems, and good glue (integration). He is also now the new father of Audrey (a fine example of how simple technology is compared to people).
