Letter in Response to Dianna Levi

Letter from Dianna Dear Missy Diana Levi, I’m glad you had a great time being in our Arganee World. I enjoyed my short interactions with you and we seemed to have a lot in common. You brought up good points about me being “hidden.” I just want to remain anonymous in a way with the online pictures. I want to be seen but not seen at the same time if you know what I mean. And yes I absolutely love […]

The End of Netnarr is Nigh

It only seems like our fun had only just begun yesterday. This is some kind of hoax. Just an alchemistic (made this word up) trick to deceive us. Ahh, to say goodbye to all these alchemist friends I’ve made will be such a hard thing to do. Of course this is a hoax because digital alchemy/network narratives could never die. Even if technology were to come to an end tomorrow. It’s just apart of the human culture. Collaboration has been […]

Dual Digital Identities

So, I love having multiple online identities and this Netnarr class is allowing us to openly engage in this activity while actively pursuing our education. How about that? Talk about a non-traditional class for sure. But in the past and also  in this class, having many online identities becomes seriously overwhelming. Different emails to check, multiple identities to maintain and people to reach out to/reply to. All of these tasks make being more than one person online very challenging for […]

Weekly Reflection

Another great week has come and gone. We didn’t have class this past week but extra breaks are always good. I look forward to whatever secrets Dr. Zamora and Prof. Levine have been keeping from us and can’t wait to get back on the tour and all that. I listened to the Egypt tour and at times the sound was a little unclear but I did find the overall talk interesting and very insightful.

Weekly Reflection

It was a completely awesome experience to hear everyone read and share their piece with the class. I do have to say its hard not to get intimidated when one hears others read their pieces. It’s really hard not to judge yourself and compare your writing accomplishments with others. But I do understand it helps you grow when you listen to what other people are able to do in their own works. Excited to see what we do next.

A Lovely Game of Cards

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ A Lovely Game of Cards By Anna Bella (Expanded on from http://daily.arganee.world/dda84/ ) I found deck of cards no light but warm. Bored so followed the sound of a lady’s laughter. She bid me take rest and join her for a game. I was sure I would win but she wouldn’t give in. Hours and hours she played her witchery No she couldn’t make it easy. Haunted by hours past with green blood the fire consumed itself and disappeared. My […]

The Guiding Light

The Guiding Light By Anna Bella   I’ve been asleep for hours and awaken to use the restroom. I struggle to get out of my bed and put on my fluffy night slippers and open my door to go down the hall. As I eagerly return through the hallway to go back sleep, I am completely shocked to realize that my room has been closed back in with only a beaming blue light coming through the outline of the door.

Hope in the Rubble

Here’s another great dda I decided to respond to. This @AFP photo from Aleppo is one of the most haunting, powerful images I've seen in a long time. A novel in one shot. pic.twitter.com/PbSH1o619r — Ishaan Tharoor (@ishaantharoor) March 13, 2017 This is my fictional account of this moment (imagining how he feels.) Hope In the Rubble By Anna Bella James looked at his old record player remembering how he had everything he had ever needed. He never had to […]

Weekly Reflection

I made a Trapped in My Head sound file this past week. This was made from a collection of noises at work- an alarm beeping and phone ringing, professors speaking( mostly Levine can be heard at the end). I also found some heartbeat and breathing files to place inside. The back story would be this is a girl who is a former soldier coming into a campus environment for the first time after being in war.  I also had some gun […]

Thinking on The Boundaries of Written Language in a Digital Environment

Thinking on The Boundaries of Written Language in a Digital Environment By Anna Bella The other day I found myself in a conversation with an online friend about some internet drama. After a while, I had so much emotions and passions behind what I wanted to say that I felt like I had become mute. I wanted to actually SsAyy the words that I was typing. The typing felt like a burden. Then in my rush to type what I […]

The Man on the Blue Moped-Rated R

The Man on The Blue Moped-Rated R By Anna Bella   “I looked for someone to help me and I was surprised when I saw myself. I saw a man on a blue moped, and I saw freedom.” The man in the photo you see is Reuben Cross. I met him a few days ago. Mr. Reuben is a man of an arrogant yet remarkable character. He has held a deep bitterness in his heart for what happened to his […]

Bus Stop-Weekly Reflection

Tonight’s class was definitely an interesting experience for me. It made me see firsthand how our ideas/opinions are based on what we hear from others, see on media and on television. As I was reflecting on the idea of improvements for bus tours I thought of seeing  the visuals of the surrounding environment, greenery, outside and animals, someone in class asked to see through their window (maybe our Professor). Once this happened it became a different experience for all of us […]

Weekly Reflection of Memes

    Last week of class was fantastic. I don’t think one can ever accurately predict the course of the class each week. They always have something fun and engaging for us students to do. It’s almost like we’re kids but this is too fun. The best part of the class was spending time creating memes from Rheingold’s video on lucid dreaming. I was a little unsure of how far would be too far. In the digital world, one should […]

Network Effect Experience

When we were told to experience this Network Effect I wasn’t sure what to expect. I’m not very enthusiastic about doing this again. I do wonder why I have to wait a whole nother 24 hours for the next experience. Anyway, I like the statistics and the diagrams but the 7 minute wait was annoying. A lot of the image flicks repeated. I’m not really sure what I was supposed to get out of this exercise but for me I […]
