Week 3 Private: Joel Arellano

The use of the Internet has both broadened and fragmented the contexts of communication. This is why the Internet can have a subversive effect on intellectual life in authoritarian regimes. But at the same time, the less formal, horizontal cross-linking of communication channels weakens the achievements of traditional media.

Week 3 _ Omar Aldakheel

Mapping Memories uses a great underestimated Multimedia tool that is maps! It’s more identifiable that way based on proximity. The few downfalls in this project were the amount of text that made it look too busy, and the amount of commercials in the site played pretty much before each video.

I like how in the […]

Week 3 – Jerry Makare

I am a firm believer in the concept of simplicity, so when going through the readings I tend to boil things down to the cleanest most simple example of what is being discussed within the readings, and go from there. While reading about spreadability and stickiness I thought of a popular web comic called The […]

Week 3 – Helen De Michiel Check-In

It was great video conferencing with the teams this week and talking about how the term projects are developing. If teams want to, please post your sites for any preliminary feedback before we meet again on November 2. Crowd-sourcing feedback in a safe place is only going to give you momentum and inspiration.

It is […]

Week 3 – Derek Yoshikane

After watching the videos for week 3, I felt like there were many educational applications for these videos. High school students put more effort into work that is more personal in nature. I thought of self-expression through a multimedia platform very engaging. I was continually amazed at the way a story can be told in […]

Week 3: Emily Priebe

Rethinking literacy. Mapping Memories defines this as one of their mandates. I found this to be one of the most profound concepts behind the projects that we watched this week. As we’ve talked about, storytelling has evolved and our relationship to story has changed powered largely by the technology we use to tell stories. Mapping […]

Week 3: Scott Anderson — response to viewings

The one site that stood out to me most this week was the Interview Project site that is run by David Lynch. At first, I thought I was going to hate it because when the page is loaded, all you see are these thumbnails. At first, I couldn’t figure out if they were pictures or […]

Week 3: Mike Plett response to viewings

Of the three sites we were assigned to explore this week, the Center for Digital Storytelling was the most arresting. I enjoyed the deceptive simplicity of CDS’s approach to storytelling: short narration, still photos, perhaps a bit of video. But these digital stories pack a lot of emotional power in a short amount of space, […]

Week 3: Allyson Woodard response

Of all the sites we explored this week, I think I was most struck by Mapping Memories–not because their projects were more powerful or better produced, but because the organization has such an aggressive mission, and seems very savvy in how they employ different media to pull it off. Whatever it takes to give a […]

Week 3: Adam King

By the looks of many of these posts and comments, it seems quite clear that the majority of us were far more drawn into the Interview Project then the other sites presented. Trying to override my David Lynch fanaticism, I’ve been thinking about what makes these interviews and stories ‘feel’ so starkly different than stories […]
