    Giving and Getting Comment Feedback


    I like interacting with other students in our class.

    I am usually busy, but when I do reach out, I hear back.  And visa-versa.

    I had one other student ask me this past week how I do my photo editing.  At one point I had a copy of photo shop, …

    Design Safari


    I learned a lot about design when I was in high school.  We studied balance, rhythm, minimalism, form, color, when looking at the design of buildings.  I was in an architecture design class and we learned different styles of home and building design.


    The Starbucks bag/logo.  They use the …

    Design Inspiration


    This is a really cool talk.

    I want to be able to think about things beyond their normal use.

    I would never have thought of paper making sound.

    What really got me was redoing the NY Times. They just decided to change the material presented in the news paper.

    This …

    Amanda the Lemur





    Amanda wanted to be made into a Lemur!  So here is the final product!  Yet again I used pixlr.com!

    I used the blending tools, laso tool, and copy and past.

    You just laso around the image (her head).  Copy and paste it into the other image.  Position …

    novel in four pictures



    sooo what is the novel???


    I just used google.  I had issues with the noun project.  I don’t think I will have any issues with usage sine there weren’t any copyrights on them, nor were there problems with watermarks.  Plus, it is for academic usage.

    I copy and …

    Almost wrapping up the first week of ds106


    I think that I am getting a hang of things for ds106.  I still have one daily create left.  I did not like the newspaper one.  I couldn’t get any articles I liked in our paper.


    I will get tomorrow’s done and then put together the weekly summary.

    Michael Wesch: Knowledgeable to Knowledge-able response


    This video hits a home run with college students.  I didn’t have trouble finding it and watched the video throughout the day with breaks for chores.

    I really felt connected with the ideas that media should be fore response, interaction, and connections.  I felt convicted when he said that students …

    About halfway through, …

    I got onto the site and listened to the video.  It was about 8 minutes long.  I wanted to be able to comment, …

    Common Everyday Object


    At first I had no idea what to do for this assignment, so I looked around for what the heck I could tell a story about, with just the change of a color.

    I ended up with something simple and an idea began to form.

    I chose a water bottle.…

    poor Sid


    If Sid had one more day, he should totally spend the day at the beach. His day could start with a sunrise down here in Colonial Beach, VA. He could join me while I watch the sunrise, we could play in the water and play fetch like the other dogs. …
