    Reality TV – The Horstylist


    Inspired by @andessurvivor’s work on Design Assignment #342.  I didn’t exactly follow the rules, and I’m sort of afraid I came up with a real fake reality show – that is, a fake reality show that’s actually real – but there you have it.

    Anatomy of DS106 Revisited


    Based on feedback from @DrGarcia, and on some things I forgot – notably the comment syndication – here’s v2:

    I’d like to open this diagram up for group discussion/revision, but I’m still looking for a collaborative, web-based flowcharting tool that’s as good as Visio, which is (in my view) …
