    by

    Sometimes in Tokyo, in the spring, it is vitally important to drop everything and go contemplate the cherry blossoms. (This has nothing to do with class–I just wanted to remind you all–)

    Sometimes, you should get off from Facebook, away from the virtual sunshine, and into the real sunshine.

    Personal Cyberinfrastructure

    by

    Reading the article “A Personal Cyberinfrastructure” by Gardner Campbell was actually a kind of moving experience for me.

    Actually, why CAN’T I copy money?

    by

    Amidst all of the controversy over copyright and censorship, I think it’s important to look at the arguments FOR copyright–for example breaking down this argument for SOPA/PIPA:

    …99% of the world does not have the time, the inclination, or the technological capacity to counterfeit money. By creating those techniques, …

    Design your Dream

    by

    The assignment I chose to do today prompts us to–

    Take a recent dream or nightmare you’ve had and make a visual representation of it for others to see.

    This is actually not based on my dream, but one that a friend had about me.

    The process was time-consuming, but …
