So this is an interim little blog post as I’m not quite happy with where I’ve gotten to with my look back over week 3. For the first time I used the LifeStream feature that allows you to automatically create a weekly digest and looking back over a week of activity is, frankly, super intimidating. I’ve also been mulling the readings and what I want to say about them that wasn’t already said in this week’s Skype tutorial (which I really enjoyed – real time text chatting reminds me of my first happy internet adventures in AOL chat/IM spaces).
So unfortunately that means I won’t be posting my summary until tomorrow when I will have tweaked tonight’s draft blog post into some sort of order from it’s current state of mild chaos.
My visual artefact is, meanwhile, coming along OK I think… I think I’m going for a sort of infinity shaped navigation around a sort of dual-sided presentation on Prezi exploring the convergent nature of what constitutes the dystopic and the utopian visions of digital culture – I think both stem from many of the same feelings and expectations of technology and humanity so I’m trying to visually draw that out and explore it a bit. Expect at least one still from Fritz Lang’s 1926 film Metropolis.
