Progress Report

I had a rough beginning with this class that I am slowly getting over. When Dr. Becker was sick, I emailed multiple teachers to seek help with how the heck to even link blogs. I got no reply. From anyone. I did not feel like I was setup for success. I fell very behind, because…

From Conceptual Chain to Conceptual Network pt2

I was reading the article, honestly kind of really bored (even though I am a science major), and getting distracted and grumpy because it was taking so long to read. My attention is all over the place so unless I have a really amazingly captivating teacher (and I have only had four of those) I simply cannot focus.…

From Conceptual Chain to Conceptual Network pt.1

My sentences in order from beginning of course: -I am a chemistry major and going to double in forensic science. I also really love Star Wars. – I do not really like how quickly that we are advancing and how we humans in a general sense are extremely materialistic and just want to over advance.…

Gathering Information

Pinwheel in a hurricane My brain processes so much information in very little time. I have so much energy and synapses firing I barely sleep (surprisingly still healthy and can retain information). I get easily distracted because I am so sensitive to stimuli. When “digesting” information from others, it has to be really interesting or…

Mind Blowing

  Something that really blows my mind is that Saturn has an unusual frequency right now. Apparently it has been happening since the 90’s, but now it is having noticeable changes in frequency which don’t add up with what it should be made of. It is all happening in the core and we can’t send…

Augmenting Human Intellect

“These notecards represent much more than just an in formation file. They provide a workspace for me, in which I can browse, make additions or corrections, or build new sets of thought kernels with a good deal of freedom.”   This quote really jumped out at me. The notecards are something that are more to…

Inquiry Project Post

I really thought that the kitty litter post was interesting. I love science and I think that growing up with my grandfather using kitty litter for all kinds of wacky things, prepared me to not be surprised that something like litter could be used with nuclear waste. I also think that it is funny organic…

Analyzing the Obvious

Flies fly I looked up “flies fly” on google. It was interesting to see how many flies there actually are and the many different ways that they can fly. I also read many forums about people asking if you pull one wing off will they fly in a circle and other silly questions and statements.…

Man-Computer Symbiosis Revision

I think that I can relate with Brian’s post about how easy it is to lose things. I bought a new phone from Verizon half a year ago and the sales associate wound up erasing all of my pictures, like my daughter’s first birthday, (even though he swore up and down that he backed it all…

Man-Computer Symbiosis

“Books are among the most beautifully engineered, and human-engineered, components in existence, and they will continue to be functionally important within the context of man-computer symbiosis.”   This was a tough article to read, interesting content but it was so plain Jane scientific journal style that it took me an hour to get through this…
