Fancy Words for Simple Concepts

After much thinking, here is the new idea for my contribution to our fieldguide: The creation of multiple digital identities by adolescents highlights their need to share versions of themselves online, proving that there is no distinction between "real life" and "digital life".You can see the specific questions I plan to explore in my other post: "It's Crunch Time!" Ultimately, I have come to realize that many are discussing the concept of digital dualism, and whether or not living online is […]

Thoughts

I’m still a work in progress because I’m still not exactly sure how to put all my work together. I have no issues with my research but to make it all come together as a complete assignment is where my struggle comes in. I’m trying my best and hoping that I am doing this correctly. I feel I am struggling with my bot but I followed all the steps. Now I can’t get my hypothes.is to connect to the article […]

Job Scams

https://www.thebalancecareers.com/top-job-scam-warning-signs-2062181 https://www.scamwatch.gov.au/types-of-scams/jobs-employment/jobs-employment-scams https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/articles/0243-job-scams https://www.njit.edu/cds/scam-job-postings.php After meeting with the professors I didn’t know what topic to choose because my first topic on viral videos was simply too broad. So then I decided that I would gear towards scamming and chose to focus on job scams. I have been a victim of going on job interviews which were complete scams. Why do people advertise jobs which are scams and how exactly can you decipher which job is real and which is a […]

Exploring Issues of Social Curation in Online Spaces…

So, upfront, this is my blog. If you’re looking for commentary or “dialogue” about the content on my blog, I’d peruse the margins… Discussion Hello~ Hope everyone had a nice and healthy week. I’m back up and kicking. This week, I got the chance to catch up on a lot of work. One of the things I needed to work on apparently was refining my idea for the field guide (aka my research project(?)). After discussing my thoughts with Dr. Zamora and […]

Fieldguide

I came up with my field guide topic which was selfies, but I am not sure if that’s what I want to do. I wanted to talk about selfies and photographer, how selfies would take over photography and people would enjoy taken pictures themself without going to the studios to take pictures. Then I thought about selfies in general and why people take selfies. Also why girls take selfies more than boys and is there a reason why? So am […]

Weekly reflection

I am still working on my digital Alchemists. I keep going back and forth about what I want my Alchemist should look like. I still need to work on my Alchemist, because am not used to creating something like this. This is so not me, but I am working hard to do my best. My field guide topic is a bite broad and I need to narrow it down a little bite, and am not sure if that’s what I […]

Dr. Kittens Comes Alive! And She Is To Darn Hot, like ‘Spicy Watermelon-Bubble-Gum’… Is That Even A Thing?

  This week as been an interesting one for sure. Especially with the class and our final project. I think this project will prove itself to be more fun than expected. So, this week we talked about coming up with a topic for the final project, as well as creating a ‘profile’ for our alchemist (mentor). For my final the topic relating the final project, finally decided on what to go with. At first, I was think of doing something […]

Recapping

This week focusing on viral videos was very interesting because there were many times when I seen a video circulate and within minutes I seen that same video and there were some changes made. This had me confused because now I no longer knew which video held the truth. Technology have taken over in the worst way and it sometimes become sickening because people really lose their lives behind things like this. Some may find messing with with viral videos […]

Viral Videos

I decided to focus on why do some videos go viral? That’s a question that I always wondered what makes this content so special that it reaches so many people across the world? Scrolling through social media makes me ask myself that question almost everyday because many times it’s the simpliest video that becomes viral. I sit back and think hey I could have did that even better but what made it viral. My digital alchemist is so chill and […]

Despite what my featured image says, I was, in fact, not feeling okay.

Flu. Upper respiratory infection. 103 degree fever. Hacking every other minute. congestion. insomnia. The whole nine yards. It can really slow you down. I tried my best to work through it. My […]

The Usual Suspects…

Hey~ Sorry I couldn’t join everyone in class this week. Unfortunately, I’ve been very sick lately and apparently it’s getting worse before it gets better. I would not have been my usual pleasant presence had I been in class in-person this week. Anyway, I am sorry I missed getting to discuss different ideas for the field guide with everyone. I’m sure that would’ve been fun and constructive ^.^ As far as that subject goes, btw, I am thinking of focusing on […]
