Wherever the Wind Takes Us

Unfortunately, this is only going to be a tiny sneak peek for the final project. The current plan is exploring the distinction between digital-dualism and augmented reality. As I’ve most likely mentioned before, the concept of augmented reality is introduced as “just a legend” in this is ongoing story that I’m working on for the project. Below is the conversation in which this “legend” is brought up (you can simply follow the replies). The sun shines vivid, the wind blows […]

Just A Brief Update….

Hey~ So, suffice to say, this weekend has been a bit overwhelming for me. I’ve spent most of it getting my final touches together for my thesis presentation at Research Days on Tuesday. This weekend was one of the first I’ve had totally off in a while so I got a lot of time to focus on these last-minute-but-very-important things. There’s never enough time for anything, is there? Anyway, as far as my research for the field guide goes, I’m still […]

To AUC, What Are Your Thoughts on Social Curation In Online Spaces???

Hey~ How’s Cairo? Hot? Mild? Does it ever get sandy in the city? I’ve always wondered…. Anyway, I’m getting off topic. It happens. I hear you’re working on projects about digital literacy? So have we! …Well, kind of. We’re each researching a problem associated with the Internet and increasing digitization of daily life. The focus of my research is social curation in online spaces. Specifically, I’m looking at how social curation in online spaces affects our emotional engagement IRL. I wrote […]

‘Blackfishing’: To the AUC Students

For my final project, I will be discussing and "investigating" the new phenomenon of 'Blackfishing'. For those who are unfamiliar with the term, 'Blackfishing' is when a person on Instagram or Twitter (specifically a woman) who is not of color, changes her physical appearance (e.g. hair, skin color, etc.), in order to be perceived as … Continue reading ‘Blackfishing’: To the AUC Students →

Death by Selfies

For my Fliedguide, I picked selfies but just like I said in my other blog. It was a Borad topic so i spoke to Dr Zamora and professor Alan Levine and bespoke about different topics. Alan suggested that I should research about people that take selfies in dangerous places, so I said I will look into it. I did some research and I found death by selfies, which I was really surprised to hear the amount of dead by selfies […]

Socrates’ YouTube Channel Has Hit 1000 Subscribers!

I think the title of the post revealed which article that I’ve chosen to examine. I mean, come on… the title of Sacasas’ article is simply amazing and really hard to ignore. I hope that I managed to do some service with mine. Although I had opened up an account for my Alchemist character on Hypothesis.is, I was reluctant to annotate anything because there were no other annotations available. I’m thinking that maybe we should start a private group for […]

field guide 2.0

Alright. So. I’m just gonna jump in about my topic. We’ll make this as clean cut as possible. No fluff. Ya gurl is Tired and has a lit review due in two (2) days. As I mentioned in my previous field guide post, I was leaning towards and am now 100% committed to (aka like 10 sources deep in) the examination of fandom culture and obsession with a focus on K-pop, “stan,” and “sasaeng” culture. (A bit lost? Don’t worry, […]

Augmented Reality

In support of my last post, "Fancy Words for Simple Concepts", I found an article titled, "Digital Dualism Versus Augmented Reality" by Nathan Jurgenson, which discusses the idea of both your online presence and physical life as one entity that is entwined together. The article defines key terms, such as: augmented reality, slacktivism, and false binary. The article states that in this world, we are "comprised of a physical body as well as our digital Profile, acting in constant dialogue." The article […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
