Update

Hey guys, so I’ve done a lot of research over the break. I’m solid on how to connect all my points with all of y’all’s previous posts, but I still need to connect it with at least one of the dreamers’ works. I have a meeting with Dr. C tomorrow, so I’m hoping to be […]

Progress report/Research Reflection

Well…since most of y’all have not seen my face in a while, you can guess I’ve been slacking off. I first started off being sick and missing classes and then getting better, but lacking the energy to do work and go to classes. So here I am, way behind everyone and everything, trying to catch […]

Meta-The Craft of Argument

The first post I’m going to talk about is one of the older one’s, “How does it feel when I think?” When I started writing this blog, I didn’t want to sit there and think about what I was going to write, I just began writing. As I kept writing, I found myself in a […]

Animation and Music

Timbres, the “fonts” of musical expression, contain the quality and mood which different instruments bring to an orchestration. They may be captured, edited, and used dynamically. This may not seem very fascinating to some, but it is to me! It’s crazy how someone was able to put this information into a computer system to allow […]

Inquiry Project Draft #2

After the comments I got on my first proposal for my topic I think I’m going to stick with authenticity, but I’ll focus more on social media. I think there’s a lot of examples I can find throughout my feed and others’ feeds that will help explain and break down my topic. I will most […]

Dreams

Technology is an expression of man’s dreams. If man did not indulge his fantasies, his thoughts alone would inhibit the development of technology itself. Ancient visionaries spoke of distant times and places, where men flew around and about, and some could see each other at great distance. The technological realities of today are already obsolete […]

Authenticity (Inquiry Project)

I am taking this class called Intro to African American Studies, and my professor introduced the “concept” of authenticity to us. Authenticity is used to distinguish the value of something, while devaluing the thing it’s distinguishing. In simpler terms, it is the concept, or the lack there of, of valuing something that has just happened […]

Class of bloggers

I love reading my classmates blogs. Most of them are very intellectual and others are funny. I actually get inspired from their blog posts to write mine. I try to be creative and write on the spot what I feel, which is what I do sometimes, but sometimes I just like getting a feel of […]

Are You Happy?

I always stumble on the though of happiness. I never know how to explain it and it gets frustrating. Happiness is a thing that one always desires, because who wants to be miserable all the time? I always think of where I am in that certain point in my life; I do so because I […]

Linked post

I found myself very baffled by these few statements. The first statement was more surprising to me. If you ask me, I wouldn’t want to simultaneously work together with a computer. I feel like computers are there to relay information to us that most of it’s users are not capable of finding ourselves. They are […]

Curiosity Killed the Cat

” There will nevertheless be a fairly long interim during which the main intellectual advances will be made by men and computers working together in intimate association. A multidisciplinary study group, examining future research and development problems of the Air Force, estimated that it would be 1980 before developments in artificial intelligence make it possible […]

Connecting worldwide

http://rampages.us/karlaimpala/2015/08/31/concept-experience/ http://rampages.us/srikaruniv200/2015/08/31/concept-experiences/   What I found interesting about a few of my classmates’ posts were that they found themselves on one site looking up a certain topic, but ended up on a totally different site, connecting themselves to different parts of the world. They discussed how the internet allows us to explore past what we see, […]

“Associative Trails” Concept Experience

  If you scroll through my history, all you will really see is YouTube, Netflix, or Gmail. As you can see I spent most of my time on YouTube yesterday. It’s very convenient to be able to search basically any song, and if you’re lucky, find an instrumental or karaoke track someone has made. It […]

As We May Think

Science has provided the swiftest communication between individuals; it has provided a record of ideas and has enabled man to manipulate and to make extracts from that record so that knowledge evolves and endures throughout the life of a race rather than that of an individual. This passage was interesting to me because it had … Continue reading As We May Think
