Process Post #12

Jesse Thorn gives some great advice in his article. I appreciate that he pulls examples from all types of mediums, so the reader will likely be familiar with at least one person on the list. Of the names I recognized, I feel like Thorn even undersold some of their accomplishments. I didn’t think I knew […]

Process Post #11

Ah yes, the hellscape of online comments. As a seasoned poster, I’m very familiar with what comments can bring: constructive criticism, spam, trolls, and everything in between. Maybe it’s because I grew up online, but “rude” comments don’t typically bother me much, especially if it’s from an anonymous source. Rent Free I personally think it’s […]

YouTube educator Tom Scott (2022) recently put out a video detailing his thoughts on AI. Scott uses the metaphor of the sigmoid curve (an s-shaped curve) to describe the rate of technological progress. Progress starts slow as only the initial innovators exist in the market, until it begins to rapidly increase as others enter the […]

I was thrilled to see Jon Bois’ 17776 as one of this week’s readings. This piece is one of my favourite examples of unconventional storytelling. The story takes full advantages of being published digitally, it could not be told the same way in a conventional medium. This piece of media blurs the lines of what […]

Peer Review #2:

I am reviewing Ainah Enduma’s blog, The homepage design is simple but pleasing. I was worried her homepage would look like the examples in Travis Gertz’s article, but I was pleasantly surprised. Most minimalist websites I see opt for a sans-serif font as it looks more “modern”, so it’s a nice change to see […]
