    Chicken Sandwiches and Marriage

    by
    Chik-fil-A.   And the larger issue of gay marriage.   I haven’t really touched on any political issues yet in this blog. There is no premeditated reason for this, but maybe on the spot I could try to think of some. One would be that I feel like the vast majority of people who might ...

    Why do you live here?

    by
    Why do you live here?   I get asked this question a lot. By the way for those of you who don’t know I’m a Tokyo-based……guy. I guess if I was cool and actually doing something meaningful with my life at this present moment I could tell you I was a “Tokyo-based journalist” or “Tokyo-based ...

    Freedom is Free

    by
    (For context, I originally wrote this around Memorial Day, but never got around to finishing it because of school, laziness, and the Internet).     I can’t take it anymore.   I’ve been wanting to write these words for a long time, and I feel my patience is at an end. I am so eager ...

    XXIV-While I’m at it

    by
    Let me complain about some Japanese people for a minute. Technically I don’t have to ask your permission since it’s my fucking blog and I can write about whatever I want. But I still try to observe decorum, and that counts for something in this crazy world.  This isn’t going to be a Japan Times(read: ...

    XXIII-No, it wasn’t

    by
    As I alluded to in my final class-related post, I knew there was a possibility that the end of CIS 0835 wasn’t necessarily the end of this blog. Hell, what can I say, I missed vomiting my thoughts out onto the Internet. You might say that I do this very frequently on a daily basis ...

    XXII-The Grand Finale…?

    by
    Well here it is, the last ds106 assignment.  And here’s my submission… THE ASSIGNMENT  In the interest of full disclosure, I have actually deviated somewhat from the instructions. I was supposed to re-create the sounds of MY family around the dinner table. We rarely ate around a table, and during the times that we did, ...

    XXI-Renaissance

    by
    Once upon a time there was a crazy guy who painted the ceiling of a building somewhere in Europe. Also, some other stuff was happening. Historians refer to this period as “The Renaissance”, which is a word they made up. Bryan Alexander liked this made-up word so much he used it to describe his 4th ...

    XX-A Personal Cyber what…?

    by
    This should be obvious by now, but this blog is written as a reflection on this article. Where to begin…I must say that Professor Lock Scott’s lecture about this article was incredibly useful to me, not because I didn’t read the article previously, but because it simply didn’t make that big of an impression on ...

    XIX-And On A Personal Note….

    by
    I just realized that I’m racing against time (14 minutes and counting) in order to write this blog assignment before the section deadline. But I just wanted to share a personal anecdote about the human side of the internet, and an example of how things can go horribly wrong. But of course I will have ...

    XVIII-Gettin’ Topical

    So recently I gave my presentation for this section of the course. It was about this article, and for those unwilling to go read it, basically it’s a blog written in reaction to another blog. One guy blogged for Wired, floating ideas about the dreadful consequences of Syria having a chemcial weapons stockpile (if it fell ...

    Link to original assignment. For this ds106 assignment, I was asked to try my hand at the recently popular “What ____ thinks I do” meme. Because I’m an egomaniac, I decided to do one about myself. THE PROCESS I originally set out to make it using MS Paint, because I had found nothing but pain ...

    XVI-Great Scott, Sean made something!

    by
    In this ds106 assignment, “Stick Figures in Sticky Situations”, we were asked to draw a picture of a stick figure in an unusual situation. This was significant for me, because 1. I actually had to draw something, 2. I did it while I may in fact be dying of tuberculosis. THE PROCESS I thought it ...

    XV-Terror and Vitriol On The Internet

    by
    Friends, I blog to you today about grave matters. As you can see by the title of this post, I have decided that the moniker “Fear and Loathing on the Internet” is just not quite strong enough for the subject I am about to broach. It is more base and inhuman than the most sinister ...

    XIV-Gateways to Geekery

    by
    Link to original assignment. For my first ds106 assignment of the section, I’ll be writing a blog post modeled after one of the The Onion’s “Gateways to Geekery” articles, the purpose of which is to give you an in-depth introduction to someone else’s geeky obsession as if you might actually want to undertake it on ...

    XIII-Fear and Loathing On The Net

    by
    I did have a good, creative writey idea for the first blog post of this section. But then I realized it had already been done, by the greatest comic mind of my generation no less, and I couldn’t hope to top him. The Internet can be an incredibly creepy place. The negative interactions you can ...

    XII-Chicken Tenders and Jeremy Lin: My muses

    by
    So the focus of this section is “State of the Net”. My strategy for this section, as opposed to last section where my output proved to be lackluster, is to accomplish something everyday, be it a blog post or a ds106 assignment. That would make this my second blog post in this section with no ...

    X-Infographic Analysis, Part 1

    by
    This is the infographic that Group 3 has chosen to analyze first. I will be doing the bottom portion (the red part which mainly deals with government surveillance). Big Brother. The Man. The State. Do they have your best interests at heart? Or do they like to watch you take a pee? Some people don’t care, ...

    TDC31

    by
    TDC31, a photo by johanlackbeard on Flickr. Let me begin by saying that I can’t quite pin down a best or most memorable moment of my life. I find myself extremely fortunate that after only 24 years there are multiple candidates. With that being said however, this picture is by far the most interesting one ...

    , a photo by johanlackbeard on Flickr. Today’s Daily Create assignment was to take a picture of somewhere in your house where you often lose things. …Any questions?
