    Rococop Rap

    by
    I am addicted to this retelling of the story of Robocop as a rap. It takes ten minutes to cover the entire narrative of the film in loving detail. It gets super bonus points for including the actual recorded dialogue from the original film woven int...

    A little late for ds106‘s visual design week.  You can find a bunch of specimens at http://badphotohelvetica.tumblr.com Looking through the submission there, I think it works best when there truly is a bad photo. The most common flaw of the submissions is that the photo is actually good. I am not sure where the original…

    Freedom, Art & Viral Media…. in 40 mins

    by
    via blog.ni9e.com This is a must watch for anyone that is reading this. For ds106ers, it should be required watching. I can’t enumerate all the ways this presentation is great, or all the great ideas and aesthetics therein. Let me just say it is a beautiful intersection of open software, open data, the internet, crowds,…

    Stirring Creativity

    Aside from all the glorious edtech rambling debates, I am seeing ds106 as really an exercise in unlocking and cultivating our personal creativity. It is a slow process for me, which saddens me, but I am still determined to work through this and emer...

It is a slow process for me, which saddens me, but I am still determined to work through this and emerge on the other side with some creative energy flowing. I am…

    I’m spending a couple of weeks of doing daily shoot photos for the digital storytelling 106 open course. I decided in addition to taking a photo based on the guidelines, I’ll also make a video each day. Today’s theme was repetition.

    The ds106 assignment for this previous week was to read O’Reilly’s “What Is Web 2.0?”,  Bryan Alexander and Alan Levine’s “Web 2.0 Storytelling: The Emergence of a New Genre”, and Seven Things You Should Know about Creative Commons. First off, for most of higher ed, the term web 2.0 is still some strange ideal that is…

    Dave Winer On Personal Publishing Infrastructure

    by
    Thanks to @drs18 for pointing me to this post by Dave Winer on students running their own publishing infrastructure.  How strangely serendipitous that while we in ds106 are raging on about the Gardner Campbell’s “Personal Cyberinfrastructure” that Winer joins in on the net with his own take. Winer also, like Campbell in his “No More Digital Facelifts”…

    The Animated Gif As Internet Haiku

    by
    The previous week in ds106 has been all about what I consider a uniquely internet art form, the animated gif. Yup, what was a gaudy attack on all that is good and decent has made a resurgence in some corners of the web and ds106 is riding the wave. ...
