    Here I did a reflection after reading and re-editing and adding to my already existing posts. This was my final blog-post for my class, and it was a close one! I really enjoyed the class and my recording is a bitter-sweet ending. This project was for extra credit that I …

    Phenomenal Woman Poetry Reading


    I did a reading of Phenomenal woman for my DS106 Audio category. This was a stressful assignment, mostly because I kept messing up and having to re-record. Not to mention how terrible I think my own voice sounds, all nasally yuck! In any-case i chose this poem because it …

    The Future


    This blog-post is a response to “The Visible College: Four Futures” The video can be found Here I think that this lecture is spoken on the same gust of wind as Gardener Campbell’s article. In many ways both men are hopeful for the future of infinite possibilities. For me watching …

    A personal Cyberinfrastructure


    Being a University student in a digital age. It is a hard topic to tackle, mostly because I have known nothing different. I even remember in the third grade when the teacher was explaining that when you open a program you click twice on the mouse. How do we know …

    “New modes of comunication change what can be imagined and expressed…Enviroments are not passive wrappings but active processes”

    This quote was a significantly powerful statement for me. It shows that people are the limit to ourselves, if it can be imagined that it can be achieved. T’his rings true particularly …

    Repression in China~


    For my presentation I decided to research and report on fear and loathing in China. What I discovered was not only repression in the available information, but also in the law that dictates how the persons who violate the rules are treated.

    No unit or individual may use the Internet …

    Blogger love


    When I started this class, I was very worried. For one I had never started my own blog, nor had I read them regularly. Suer I jumped the wagon on Myspace and Facebook, and still linger, but just because I know it, it is comfortable. Like the diner with the …

    Behind the Scene


    Sitting and listening to a presentation, while asking witty and argumentative questions comes like breathing for me, but giving a presentation was quite another story. While in theory the presentation was quite simple, the matters of the mind often get in the way. What do I mean? I mean every …

    Tarantino Story


    Ill-Timed Travel

    Tracy had never wondered what her friend was like in youth, she was exactly the same just in a different time and place. 

    The sharp pungent scent of chlorine and echoed laughter of children set the stage. Normally the gentle whispers of energetic nurses and could be herd, …

    My thoughts on a Cyber Bullys~

    When thinking about a Cyber Bully I imagine someone who is just nasty to others on a chat. Cyber-staking and sexual predators on the internet is really what I think we should be watching out for. Teenagers  being the key targets for exual predators, …

    Mongolian Art

    Our class was assigned the project of making a presentation on Prezi<check the link to see our project! I was one of the few people who prefereed Prezi to Powerpoint. I think it is because I have little to no experience with powerpoint, and therefore I am an open …

    State of the Net



    As we are learning and listening to more about the publicatinos on the internet, the more I am realizing what a big mess it is. Twitter is dominated by idots with feelings to express but nothing of value to say. Similarly so many junk videos and crap animations take …

    Temporary Tat


    So some of you may know, but I was run over by a Taxi cab last Thursday. Resulting in my absence from class, among other paramedic filled adventures. I was looking over the Daily Creates and I saw some scars and some self-made tattoos and I got the of marking …

    Social Gaming~


    So to start off, I had no clue what Social Gaming was. Actually this was very important because as I looked at our infografic things were not getting clearer. The stats were clear and colorful, but I am highly skeptical about the statistics provided, it reminded me of a friend …

    This is my DS016 triple Troll


    Story and Process: This is a picture from San Fransisco and it worked great for my project because this man is stuck in a chaotic wire-infested room with no reason or rhyme that I can see. My quote “I accept chaos, Im’ not …

    Something LOUD!


    My favorite loud person, for the Daily Create:

    She is a four year old with a sassy side~ She may not be loud in volume but her ideas are loud.

    That is why she is my daily create! This photo was taken when she was three, she is now …

    Oops, I did it again~


    My next assignment was inspired by R. Kelly Can Fly? I really liked the idea and often spend my  time reading funny articles about bizarre crimes. like you do. I was looking and I found a less funny more sad story:

    This fella looking classy abusing these people

    What kind of name is Vannevar anyways?

    Clearly a fashion role-modle for future generations of the fashion disinterested

    When deciding who of the pioneers to choose to research more (rather than reading a little until I found someone I was interest in) I decided to chose the best one in the most sensible way. the most attractive …

    WANTED:1965 220SE Cabriolet


    Dust, leaves, cracked leather, slow time down. The aggressive ripping of a seasoned stight-six. The stuttering of the motor echoing your own heartbeat. A healthily smooth sound, ready to go. This car makes me sad. I remember the white flowers, and the impassioned speeches. The lack of tears. Then the …
