Revised Plan for Project

Strengths: The idea of live tweeting, the varying POV’s of the different people for the keynote Problematic Design Choices & Fixes: Live tweeting for 5 people is tough to do at once and there is no twitter handler that allows you to customize the time of tweets for 250+ tweets. The fix for this will […]

Another Work Day

What I did: Did another viewing of the keynote with a livestream based on the perspective of an apple fanboy. I also have decided to use XRAY goggles to work with my twitter accounts. Why I did it: I chose another perspective simply because that was the next item in my list to liveblog. I […]

Preparing for Project 4

The hardest part so far about project 4 is actually picking a project. I have decided to Remix the story of the keynote of the release of Mac OS X. This was Apple’s first step into the modern age of computing. If you look at images of mac os 9.2.2 and the next release of […]

First Glimpse of Project 4

Today I reviewed the project 4 description and some of the examples. Here are the responses to the assignment questions: What makes a good remix is the overall rethought of a well-known story. The usage of old stories modernized or simplified seems to be ideal. The example that I enjoyed the best is the remix of Beauty […]

Presentation Day #3

The application that I found to be the most beneficial is Vialogues. I thought it was really great in its usage. It seems easy to use, one can derive a lot of usage from it, and seems applicable to teachers. As far as utility, I as a student think its utility is pretty menial, but […]
