project update

ok here's a link: http://pages.pomona.edu/~apb02004/drydenone.html

i fixed the images problem, i think.

there are still things i
> need to do to make it look better - i.e. align the arrows better,
> fix the southwest arrows, insert the giant quotation mark (that will
> look cool, i think - thanks for the tip), put color in the text

A side note

Tagged:

Found This working on project.... it was both interesting and irritating.

I thought it was very self-defeating and pompous. Took an interesting premise and butchered it with a strange self-satisfying and superficial analysis. Maybe if anyone has time they can offer their own take.

wiki content

Tagged:

you win, campagnolo. i've successfully avoided seeing the two girls one cup video up until now. i think we're taking the wiki where no writing machines wiki has gone before... and it's no where i want to be either. have you seen kermit the frog's reaction?

Ender's Game

So, at my own academic peril, I just re-read Ender's Game . A helluva tale, everything you could want in a piece of science fiction and perfect, I think, for middle schoolers. There are two important games in the book. One is a fantasy game that all the cadets in battle school play on their memex-like "desks" which are essentially laptops that you put yourself into, similar to old fashioned cameras where the photographer got under a curtain.

stephanie's project

Tagged:

wow. stephanie, you have a lot to teach me about formatting. how did you do all that? especially your front page - that's amazing. also, i mentioned in my post to sam that i shared his problem of having an ugly block of text at the top of the page - how did you make yours centered and big like that?

this is perversely interesting

Tagged:

the bombshell.

do we really think that this is lori drew? would she really close with "here i am, internet. come get me."?? everything about the blog seems designed to provoke maximum outrage - and maximum readership. how perverted is it for someone to use this as a springboard to her fifteen minutes? how perverted is it that i could even consider that?

sam's project

as i've said before, i really like all the content up there (that was also on the wiki). i also like the skeleton you've put in place for the rest of it. where do you think the map will fit in? how present will it be? one extreme: it's on every page, along with a dot that tells you where you are. the other extreme: it's on only one page, and although it links out to all the pages, it's hard to get to. i imagine getting the map up there in the first place must be tough.

becca's project

Tagged:

well, i like it a lot. it's hard to go wrong with the little prince.

i like that that picture is on every page also. i think i told you that when i was talking to you in person.

class tomorrow?

Tagged:

uh... what are we doing in class tomorrow? are we supposed to look at something in particular?

oh, and here is that Collaborative Drawing site I was talking about. Check out the animated time-lapse of individual drawings, it's pretty cool.

shift space

Tagged:

shift space is really, really cool. at least, it has the potential to be really, really cool. there don't seem to be a whole lot of users yet, and most of the comments aren't all that interesting, but it's on its way. the image swap is a crazy feature. definitely watch the video posted there. and get an account for yourself. maybe i'll see you on the other side.
