    Photoblitz Challenge

    The visuals of storytelling


    Also: How does an image create a narrative by itself? How does an image tell a story?

    Summary- Week 3


    This week has been by far my favorite week so far. Potentially the reason for this is a mix of the fact that writing is one of my favorite forms of being creative and that I was very proactive in getting the assignments done so that they didn’t conflict with …

    The 6.1 Million-dollar man


    Son of Colt and Kathryn Luger, Richard ‘Rich’ Lancer grew up on the south east side of Boston. As anyone who was there in the early 70s will tell you, it wasn’t a nice place. Richard and his family grew up near Little Italy. His parents were killed by the …

    Week 3 – Just another day


    I stepped outside a few minutes ago to take in my surroundings. I admit, it is not something that I do often anymore- but I appreciate the opportunity to do so every chance I get. My days are often a jumbled mess of deadlines, appointments, meetings, classes, and between all …

    Week 3 – story analysis


    Jason Bourne: Where are you now?
    Noah Vosen: I’m sitting in my office.
    Jason Bourne: I doubt that.
    Noah Vosen: Why would you doubt that?
    Jason Bourne: If you were in your office right now we’d be having this conversation face-to-face.

    Week 2 summary


    Hello there, fellow agents! Week two is coming to a close, and now I get to take a moment to reflect on the things that I have learned, enjoyed, disliked, and accomplished overall.

    This post was inspired by my classmate, Riley’s post.

    The link to the original visual mashup assignment page is here. After seeing Riley’s post from above on the ds106.us class feed, I was inspired to try my hand at making a mashup advertisement- between two competitors. I had actually …

    Week 2 – Assignment 1


    Hello there, fellow agents. As of today, I have decided to share a few unclassified photos of my private life with you, against my better judgement. Hopefully nobody will use it against me to blow my cover. Honestly, OPSEC has never been my strongest skill around the office. (Look, I …

    Week 1 summary


    I was kind of surprised that I faced such a strong learning curve coming into this class. But since I’m not a big social media person, it wasn’t as bad to use the sites as I expected.
