semillero / incubator

I recently received news that an incubator I worked on while on sabbatical in Colombia has gotten institutional support from the Universidad Sur Colombiana. this is great news. This means that the “let’s make a game” game can startup in the town where I was born. the first cohort is made up of first-year students who are not yet 18 years old. they have precious little support, and there are learning materials in spanish that I have to track down. it will give me a professional reason to keep visiting Colombia.

the students call my by the honorific “ingeniero” because the semillero is located within the engineering department. I’ve tried to get them to call me “diseñador” instead, which is my earned title.
