Digital Identity: The Reprise

Digital Identity: The Reprise

Here is the text to my first Digital Identity write up. Well! If I search myself up now, here is what appears: So, not entirely riveting. Apparently there is someone out there with my same name who is a much more interesting track star. But, I don’t mind! I’d still say I’m rather active on […]

Even Thoreau Returned From the Woods

Even Thoreau Returned From the Woods

I’m over a week late on this, so it seems like a lifetime ago. I’m actually not even sure if I was in class for this specifically, but here are my thoughts on the ethics of cheap labor/consumption in general: Obviously the exploitation of slave labor has never been, and will never be ethical. However, […]

A Tiny Mapping Journey

A Tiny Mapping Journey

Let’s map this device out! After some fumbling about, the ‘Wes Anderson Does‘ team committed to the dissection of a Comdial desk phone unit that we believe to be from 1997, based on manuals and other documentation. Here is an adorable Comdial phone family photo: I was MIA for a significant portion of this project, […]

Wes & Us: Our Semi-Success

Wes & Us: Our Semi-Success

Have I ever turned anything in on time for this class? Last week I, along with four other classmates, attempted to do the impossible: create a trailer hinting at the plot of William Gibson’s 1984 cyberpunk novel, Neuromancer, in Wes Anderson fashion. We were inspired by other visions such as What If Wes Anderson Made X-Men, […]

Coding 1: The task

Coding 1: The task

Oh my god, I completely forgot to do this. I had a draft saved and everything. I choose ‘creative coding’ for my first DGST module mainly because I liked the prompt:  I love poetry, but I was also greatly influenced by being tired of science majors treating me like I was inferior to them. I […]

Coding 2: The Cinquain

Coding 2: The Cinquain

Admittedly, I began learning Python only a few days before my project was due. A bit of reasearch told me that it took an average of two weeks to really learn the language. I tried to teach myself from something called Learn Python The Hard Way, which had me downloading Notepad ++, using PowerShell as […]

The Empathy Equation: Neuromancer

The Empathy Equation: Neuromancer

Sadly, our unit on Neuromancer has come to a close. But is it sad? While I will miss discussing literature in class,  our close reading of Gibson’s Neuromancer has effectively set me on an interesting thought path- an equation that is perhaps unsolvable. Since the novel deals largely with artificial intelligence, the question of why […]
