Mike Krieger (Class of 2008, M.S. '09) appeared recently with his Instagram co-founder, Kevin Systrom, at a special event in Cemex Auditorium. Quoting the article:
"'The moment I got here, I heard about this thing called Symbolic Systems (SymSys) and realized that it was a really good mix of computers and design and cognitive science,' Krieger said. 'So I ended up doing SymSys, took basically every human-interaction class designed here, then I stayed on for Mayfield Fellows.'"
