    What do you think was your strongest project for DS106?

    What (if anything) would you change or revise about it if given more time?

    #290 Godless America


    Godless America

    I do not think that Religion should be involved in any academic setting unless it is the choice for student. Religious people want to push their belief system on others because they assume what was taught to them by their parents is right. We do not know if …

    #203 Recordings for Someone


    I thought act 1 and the greatest phone message of all time was funny as well as very unique. I thought that it was really cool how one phone message blew up to what it became with the limited technology of the time. It was funny to see that the …

    Minimalist TV/Movie Poster

    #27 Cruelty of Children


    I found the first segment humorous but sad at the same time. I noticed how this guy totally masked his feelings for being a homosexual and his experiences and made a funny story about the pain he went through as a confused youth at camp. I have always noticed that …
