    I chose to do the assignment Cartoon You  which asks that you do the following:

    Oh Google, you so crazy!

    by

    So I decided to do my non-vice blog post on privacy and surveillance. There were a lot of articles on the relevant Scoop.It page related to Google’s new privacy policy so I sifted through those. I use a lot of Google Services, so I figured the information would be relevant. …

    I chose to do VICE for the F.A.L.O. section of our class. I was expecting to try and find something about emotional infidelity, sex-ting, and online relationships, but instead I found myself pulled into an article about Cyber Bullying.

    I’ll admit that I was mostly pulled in because the …

    Group 1?s Infographic Project

    by

    I’m pretty sure Group 1 was assembled entirely out of people that happened to miss class that day. It wasn’t really a winning group composition, but we *coughcough* made it work… I think.

    Below is our PREZI presentation. As of writing this blog post it is still unfinished (waiting on …

    My First Facebook Divorce.

    by

    There’s a whole bunch of stuff that’s gone by in my week, but I think I’ll share something thoughtful.

    Last night I got divorced. What’s more is that I got divorced on Facebook, which makes it super official. (Not really, but ok.)

    I blocked out names for privacy, and blurred …

    by

    I’m rushing out the door to teach some English lessons but after seeing today’s TDC assignment I had to do it, the assignment was:

    Make a photo of something upside down that is never seen that way.

    The assignment said make a photo, not take a photo… So I decided …

    My First Daily Create Experience

    by

    It’s pretty late so this is going to be brief, but I just participated in my first daily create assignment (tdc26). The assignment was to “take a picture of your feet that shows what kind of day you’re having.” I had an action packed day today, so it …

    The Intro

    I keep thinking that once I go back to the states that I’d like to start a blog. The beauty of a blog is that it’s far more casual and free form. There’s always the option of contributing to other blogs for payment, but I think I’d enjoy …

    Shimokitazawa in the Snow.

    I’ll start off by saying there is no point to this blog post. I felt compelled to post, but I didn’t really have anything much to talk about aside from my day last evening. I hope to post pictures once my friend sends them to me. I didn’t have a …

    Pre-Workout Blogging

    by

    When I have the opportunity I try to get ahead on my homework. I do this for a few reasons.

    This is my last semester and I’ll probably be leaving Japan once it’s over. I don’t want to spend all my days off from school doing homework. I’m taking 5…

    Inspired by role-playing websites, where participants create a character for themselves and “role-play” said character. Each post is a short piece of fictional writing, but unique in …

    How’s my internets?

    Hello Class,

    For the purposes of our online interactions for class, you can call me any sort of mash-up of my handle. Be it Roundhouse, Slap, Slappy, whatever you like. I intend to keep this online persona separate from my current professional and personal ones.
