What I Learned in Net Nar Is!!

In all honesty, I    struggled so much throughout the Network Narrative course. Being a digital alchemist is hard when you come into something  just to find out you know little -to nothing about the digital world you thought you were so familiar with. I    remember my first day of class I    was so overwhelmed when I    came in to find not a physical professor, but a screen. This was the first course in fours years of attending Kean University, that […]

Week 10 – Games As A Story, A Story As Games.Backstorying a Classic Computer/Arcade/Console Game

 The storyline starts here: It’s a rainy afternoon in Brooklyn, New York. Adam Park is at his sentencing. He stand before the judge after pleading guilty to verbal abuse and psychological manipulation. These are offenses the city has really cracked down on, because we all know New Yorkers speak recklessly. Eager to prove a point and make an example out of Park, the judge mercilessly sentences him to three years of silence, with GIFs and memes as his only means of […]

Week 11 -Digital Redlining

I   knew that redlining existed but I never knew that there was a name for it. I    found this weeks discoveries fascinating. As I  am the Vice President for the Black Student Union on campus, I    find redlining to be an issue that excites me to learn about. The technology I    picked to focus on this week were traffic cameras in specific areas in New Jersey. I learned that in more urban areas, the amount of traffic cams, including speed […]

Week 12 Bot, Not, What?

Okay so, I  hate twitter bots. Its all fun and games with twitter bots until its time so create your own I    have a new appreciation for the people and algorithms behind twitter bots. I    found the tsk of creating my own twitter bot extremely difficult and draining. I am not good with technology at all, so learning this was very difficult for me. I'm not sure what exactly went wrong with my bot, but I    received several emails saying […]

Alchemist week 4 – One Does Not Simply Make NetNarr Memes

Black Mirror is one of my favorite shows on Netflix right now. The way it highlights the flaws in our society is unconventional ways is fascinating. The Nosedive episode we watched in class is one that I'd seen before and probably my favorite one. It speaks to how shallow our society is and how insignificant the things we place value on are. I  never realized how desperate we are for the approval of others. We literally are so open to […]

Week 9- Seriously Yours, Games

I  struggled. I had never realized that empathy games were even a thing. Playing Spent in class last week made me realize how deeply a game can make you think as well as how games can uncover how you prioritize certain things in your life. In the game Spent, I    had to choose between, paying a bill and having my child teased at lunch for having it homemade. I    picked my child.  I'd never realized that as much as we […]

Week 8- This is A Game

I    always considered games, specifically video games,  to be this mindless thing that people do for entertainment, a waste of time and brainpower.  Growing up, I    was never much of a video game kind of girl, I'd rather play games like Monopoly, and Dominoes, games that forced actual human interactions. This was before technology became a thing that no one can function without. When the iPod touch came out, that is when I    realized that I    did like video games, […]

Alchemist Week 5

Alright, on this weeks episode of Adventures in Net Narr, we learned about the power of the selfie. This generation definitely reveres the selfie. There is a sacred process that involves the composition of a selfie and deeming its "post-ability."Step 1: Prep- think about your mood and what message you'd like to convey with this picture, because we all know, selfies are more than just a picture,theyre a reflection of you--your attitude-- what you want people to see you as.Step […]

Alchemist Blog Week 7

GIFs however you pronounce them (gif, gif, I   choose simply to spell the phrase out in conversation, because its such a controversial topic) are, next to memes, the funniest internet phenomenon. Its more than a meme, but less than a video, creating the perfect medium to engage an attention span that may be shorter than most (like mine). GIFs are fun, to make and easy to communicate. They provide a little more context than a meme may and create […]

Blog Week6

My blog is a little late but its here ! The DDA's this week definitely were fun to do. The numbers one made me more aware of the things that I'd usually overlook.  As kids i    think we notice more palindromes and fun things to do with numbers (like when you look at the time and the numbers are the same date as your birthday. ) Even though the DDA included and required the use of social media , it […]
