    Shark GIFing for ds106

    jim groom posted a GIF of Henry Winkler’s infamous/iconic shark jump this morning.     I can’t imagine a world where media-saturated Bava had missed the origins of this trope.  And if that’s really the case, then maybe he missed the Arrested Development sequel as well.     I’ve really been enjoying this process.  Alan […]

    I just happened to be here.

    I mentioned it yesterday and couldn’t sleep last night for thoughts of GIFing Hal Hartley’s Trust.  This was easier in Schizopolis in many ways, because Hartleys films are already focused on faces and moments.  But, oh… the faces, the moments.  In the kitchen this morning, in between coffee and rinsing a quart of hair gel […]

Micro-nutrient? Colloids? […]

    Melissa has been making me reflect on the power of names, especially habitual names, to silently shape the world we make and live in. As a result, I stalled out on some random web-form at the “occupation” blank. Educator sounds daft. This month, I’m going with learner-in-residence which is equally daft, but as the double […]

    Makers? How can making be a class?

    I’m still not sure if it’s a great class, but it’s certainly a standout hour of my day. Here’s today’s class compressed into about 2 minutes. Yes, I cheated and used audio to elicit an emotional response. I also captured spontaneous student emotion and cuteness. Projects being worked on in the video include: Sparkfun TriColor […]
