    Keys to The Past: TDC603

    Today’s daily create is a story about a key…   I seem to have a key collection. There are way too many keys in my collection to tell a proper story. Maybe it could be a novel; one of those long rambling ones that never seem to end. Why do I save keys, or at […]

    ds106 Reflections: Week 1

    I started the week by watching the three videos… …embedded in the assignment. Some of what I took from these includes: 1. Great ideas often come from hunches that have time to incubate and collect a cluster of related ideas/concepts – this process requires CONNECTIONS to happen. 2. To be creative, take an everyday phenomenon […]

    Elegance21: DailyCreate

    21st century elegance… a personal choice. This is public seating in a tiny parkette between two tall buildings. Furniture has to be functional, durable and too heavy to carry away. I think the designer achieved these goals and a measure of elegance as well. And here’s my little story (fictional of course) of how this […]

    BumbleBear – DailyCreate

    Bumblebee as Teddy Bear… I cheated on this, of course. I started with a photo of an actual bumblebee and then converted it to a line drawing using ShockMyPic on the iPad. Then, also on the iPad I proceeded to further modify the image using SketchBook Mobile, another iPhone/iPad app. Now bumblebees are already pretty […]

    Video+ – Daily Create

    An old, old bit of video… A quick mashup, overlaying a few modern comments on an old message. How would this video be made today. Done with MAGIX Movie Edit Pro.

    Dented Coke Can: DailyCreate

    Deep indentation in a Coca-Cola can: Here’s my daily create, something with an indentation. This is the second image I’ve uploaded to Flickr today. I try to upload an iPhone photo every day, just to keep my own creative juices going. Some I like a lot, others not so much. But I’d never find the […]

    Welcome to DS106 from Me

    We’re headless, right? So I figured why not.. Yeah! I’m a newbie, but so what? Why not offer my own welcome to DS106. It’s all about attitude, right? That’s the way I felt especially after I had seen the short video, ‘Georgia Tech Welcome.’ shared by Darren Barron originally to Education Revolution (Student Voice) and […]

    1st 5-card Flickr Story

    Here’s my first 5 Card Flickr Story,”The Sign’: Actually, I did it wrong the first time round. Instead of picking one image from each of a series of five groups of five randomly chosen images, I took the entire first set and made a story up about them. Here’s the result. Only the first […]

    Not a headless me, but a headless DS106. The create challenge was to make an animated GIF of yourself. Didn’t have a full-body shot of myself handy,… so I thought I’d work on the DS106 wordmark. This could also be interpreted as a headless version of me as a DS106 …

    Getting started…

    Getting started with digital storytelling… This blog has been started as part of my participation in DS106, a course in digital storytelling that originates out of Mary Washington University. This Fall it’s going to be a little different. The traditional instructors will become students, and the students will take turns facilitating the course. Sounds like […]
