    Week 9 : Final Radio show reflection


    Originally from Week 9

    Working with my radio show group was a lot of fun, work, exhaustion, and learning. I loved working with Neila and Jonathan to produce a really good show. A lot of people thought it was confusing, but I think that was our general purpose or idea …

    Laptops, city love and design all in one.



    So, as everyone knows  – my blog/ds106 experience is pretty much all politically centered/about hating my commute to DC. One of the things I don’t get to talk about enough/dwell on is that DC is absolutely beautiful. Morning, night, afternoon, rain or shine. I am in love with the …
