    EDUC 206: Reflection Paper


    For my final paper in EDUC 206, I have been tasked with reflecting on the past quarter and the work that I have completed in the course.  For those of you who don’t know, the EDUC series are classes taught at Lake Washington Technical College that are aimed at developing …

    Disneyland and Storytelling


    Let me just put this out there and let everyone know once and for all that I am a total Disneyland nut.  And while I am not ashamed of this fact, I will also be one of the first to say that I know the reasoning behind this is deeply …

    Integrating Open Resources into the Clasroom


    This week for EDUC 206, we were assigned the task of integrating copyright free or open resources into one of our classes.  The class that I decided upon was my Film Studies class.  Right now in the class, I do not use a text book.  Film Studies text books can …

    My work thus far


    It’s tough to write about my own work that I’ve created in this class, because I’ve mostly been blown away by the other work that I have seen in the class.  It is truly great to see so many people putting their time into often non-required material.  I think we …

    Course Favorites Thus Far


    DS106 has gone in waves for me and I am still not sure what it is.  In the beginning of the class, I remember stressing out over my first story — I was still in the mindset of I needed to do a project as outlined and I need to …

    The Post Post Show – Episode 4


    Here’s the new episode of the Post Post Show.  I’m not sure what time it airs, but I just need to put it up for organizational sakes. I’m really growing to love this process of creating these shows.  Just so you know, I create all of my shows in Garageband …

    Minimalist Poster: Primer


    If any of you have not seen the movie Primer you really need to get on Netflix right now and watch it.  For the design project, I decided to do the minimalist Movie poster.  I did the poster in illustrator, because I thought it would be relatively easy to build …

    The Post Post Show — Episode 2


    Even episode 2 of the Post Post show already aired on ds106 radio.  I have not as yet put up the set list.  Overall, I didn’t love episode 2 as much as episode 1.  But the process of creation is really fantastic.  Once again, I pulled most of my samples …

    The Post Post Show


    So I just finished my first half hour set for DS 106 radio.  I love what the radio project has become, but I think about it way too much and probably devote too much time to thinking about what kind of things I can devise for it.  So, I’m telling …

    Bumpers Made for ds106 radio


    It’s been a little hard to do the actual work for ds106 because all I want to do is create bumpers and programs for the ds106 radio station.  Anyway, here is a bumper that I created, incorporating some good ol’ Freaks and Geeks into it.

    After completing (maybe skimming a bit) this weeks readings for ds106, one of the things that popped out to me most in terms of what defines web 2.0 is the idea of microcontent.  The matter and substance of web 2.0 is small chunks of information, that we knowingly scatter …

    Wading Through the cPanel


    When I started this class and bought some additional commodity web-hosting one of my projects was to redirect the content from a previous now-defunct mp3 blog/podcast — gentletyrants.com.  That site was an experiment for my 26 year old self who was obsessed with indie-music and hipsterdom and at the …

    DS 106 Assignment #1: 30 second story


    Right now I am taking Jim Groom’s open course DS106- Digital Storytelling.  I am excited for the challenges that the course will offer me.  Oftentimes as a teacher I feel hypocritical for making my students create digital media around certain parameters while I feel like I don’t rise to the …
