    The Big Leagues REMIX

    by

    Boom. Last remix assignment. This one’s worth 4 stars. Still a lot, and I feel like the stars system for remix assignments needs balancing, but I’ll leave that for future ds106 generations.

    For this assignment, I had to take a “Play in the Big Leagues” assignment and “Turn Up The …

    Final Project Update

    by

    I am in the lab writing lyrics like a madman! I don’t want to give too much away as far as lyrics go so I will release what I think will be my hook before the third verse. This is the hook:

    It’s 10 am, gotta check the daily create,…

    New Assignment

    by

    I decided to create a video assignment next. I love listening to music and I always either sing along or lip synch the words. Then I remembered when Lindsay Lohan lip synched on Saturday Night Live and got caught. Even famous artists lip synch! I decided to make an assignment …

    There’s No Crying In the Library!

    by

    Well, not anymore at least.  And for the record, I wasn’t really crying, there was just something in my eye…both my eyes…and they got really teary.  That’s all…

    For the past three and a half months I have had the security of knowing a job is waiting for me this …

    Premiere Pro Project #1

    by

    I must say, after struggling with the Premiere Pro for two days, I really like it.   It’s all pretty intuitive, I think.  I just have to keep playing with all the different tools and shortcuts.  I do like the fact that I have so much control over every inch of …

    Final Project – “Sun Setting on the Season”

    by

    As our season nears the end with about 3 weeks remaining before the Conference Meet, I thought I’d give my final project a bit more diversity by mixing in a visual assignment that I submitted earlier in the semester. I submitted the “Time of Day” assignment after seeing a cool …

    Final Project – Johns Hopkins Invitational

    by

    This past weekend most of the team went up to Johns Hopkins for a meet, which had a very unique setting in the middle of Baltimore. The track was immediately surrounded by city, unlike most college tracks which have many other collegiate practice fields around it. Warming up for my …

    I love businesses that stumble into themselves. At first it’s easy to think, “Wow wish I could get lucky and just stumble into such an idea,” but you have to remember, they didn’t get lucky. Usually, they were working their hardest on other ventures. Caterina Fake is one such person.…

    Blogger

    by

    Blogger, another Web 2.0 company, is another company that came into itself while working on something else. Evan Williams cofounded Pyra Labs in 1999. Originally Pyra set out to create a web-based project management tool, not unlike Basecamp. However, Williams built the core, simple Blogger to turn his own personal …

    Dropbox

    Dropbox is a seriously cool company. First of all, I know you have all used it, if you haven’t do so. It’s awesome. And so is Drew Houston (pronounced like the street in New York City, not the city in Texas) the mastermind behind Dropbox.

    Dropbox got started when Houston …

    New Final Project

    In a previous post, I talked about how my final was going to be comparing the Great Lives lecture class to ds106. One was a class that brought in distinguished lecturers and ds106, the epitome of the future for information systems and social media. However, as Steve Jobs said, do …
