On more than one occassion, particularly as a first year, I've been trying to work out who someone in BE is. For example, your talking to someone at BE.526 and you remember later they said they had a great protocol for a yeast fermentation, only you don't remember what their name was. Most other departments (e.g Chem. E) display the names and photos of all their grad and undergrad students. Seems like it would be useful for us too.
Basically, I'd like to see the info. we currently all have in the MIT directory, linked to photos and organized by class.
I'd like to solicit feedback on this from the board and the students (I asked for a related question to be put on the student survey). If people thought it wasn't a terrible idea I will take it to Dalia, as they should have all the pictures and access to the data. If it isn't easy for them to do, we can do it ourselves given the data.
