Final Essay Update

Thanks to some of my classmates making some insightful suggestions during my presentation, I decided to switch up the main focus of my final essay, while incorporating a bit of my old essay into it, and that really helped me finish the grueling 2500 words.  I managed to come up with a completely new rough draft … Continue reading Final Essay Update

I Need Motivation

I don’t know about anyone else but i’m finding it difficult to come up with 2500 words while still trying to make this paper interesting.  Especially after coming off of Thanksgiving break,  the motivation to do anything productive is completely non-existent.  Hopefully I can find that spark of interest to help me finish off this … Continue reading I Need Motivation

Monday/Tuesday Update

Putting It All Together

Part 1/2: The Gathering/Planning After looking through various sources among the web, I have found a handful that have been pretty helpful in providing information for my project.  I have used a book called World Wide Mind: The Coming Integration of Humanity, Machines, and the Internet which is pretty self explanatory in the title.  The second source I used … Continue reading Putting It All Together

“As We May Think” Nugget

“Machines with interchangeable parts can now be constructed with great economy of effort. In spite of much complexity, they perform reliably. Witness the humble typewriter, or the movie camera, or the automobile. Electrical contacts have ceased to stick when thoroughly understood. Note the automatic telephone exchange, which has hundreds of thousands of such contacts, and … Continue reading “As We May Think” Nugget

Thinking Big (Reflective Blog Post)

One of the blogs from last summer that caught my eye was a blog called Interior Design and Dreaming (WK 6), by NJ.  The subject of the blog was aimed towards reaching new heights in our existence as a human race via neruotechnology.  The reason this blog particularly caught my eye was because I am interested in learning more about … Continue reading Thinking Big (Reflective Blog Post)
