#NetNarr Season 4: Net Mirror Post Script

Oops. Speaking of slacking on the blogging, the last post here on this year’s Networked Narratives class was the first one about this year’s class. Net Mirror is the New #NetNarr This fourth iteration of this change it up every year course co-taught with Mia Zamora at Kean University mixed things up from previous years. More on that soon. From the start, the theme/metaphor is a 100% rip off (done with total respect, natch) of Black Mirror. And what we […]

Glitch, Remix, a #NetNarr Exquisite Corpse

There you go, try guess the nature of this blog post from a word heavy vague title. Better yet, just go first and try the thing I will be ‘splaining right here. Well, are you back? Did anything happen? Because one of our students in class (she too a teacher) asked as well as my twitter dog pal I hope you will write about how you set that up in Glitch (does it require an Airtable account? What’s Airtable?) You […]

Three Gifted Poems for #CLMOOC

Through the course of the day yesterday, I wrote three different poems as gifts, inspired by our month-long Poetry Port adventure in the CLMOOC community, where folks are writing poems to daily themes, composing words as gifts to others, and requesting poems be written for them. (learn more) The first poem, above, was written as a gift for the collective students in the Networked Narratives class, which I dip in and out of as an open participant. I went through […]

Does You Know What’s Inside Your Own Cookies?

Each week I buy a package of cheap storebrand sugar cookies, I call them my “Horrible Cheap Cookies.” I eat 2 or 3 when my blood sugar dips. My wife laughs at me, but I kind of like those no-name maple cookies. I have no idea what’s in them. I can guess, but do I really know? Can you see the metaphor coming? Web browser cookies, invented originally as a means of convenience to remember preferences from a web site, […]

Net Mirror is the New #NetNarr

It’s back. It’s dark, reflective, you are looking into it. It looks “off”. CCO image from Pikrepo But it’s not. It’s looking at you. Is it? This is the 2020 iteration of a recast Network Narratives, the course I’ve co-taught (completely remotely) at Kean University with Mia Zamora. Things are different this time around, start with the intro that leads you to the new site. Here’s what it’s about. Through my own fascination with the dystopian future as now series […]

The NetNarr Field Guide: A Journal Worth Exploring

Early on, I was pretty active in the Networked Narratives course as an open online participant, as a sort of satellite with a few others to the actual university course being taught by Alan Levine and Mia Zamora. My comic strip alter-egos — The Internet Kid and Horse with No Name — were also part of the Twitter conversations and activities. At some point, I admittedly lost track in a peripheral way (this is the beauty of RSS feeds — […]

[disconnect from server #netnarr ? Y/N]

Self-assessment: It’s the end of Network Narratives class. It was possibly one of the most interesting classes that I had a chance to participate in. Originally pitched as a follow-up to Electronic Literature class —which was also quite interesting in its own right, I can safely say that Network Narrative exceeded my expectations. The beginning of the class was focused solely on “the darkness” in social media. Frankly, I had some concerns during the first couple of weeks or so […]

Self-Assessment 2019

This semester has been quiiiiite an interesting one, haha. I started off not even realizing I was taking Netnarr again and ended with a amalgamative journal entry about fandom and K-pop while talking to myself. We’ve… come a long way, huh. Regarding new skills, I think this semester I’m most proud of the fact I got my bot, @fab_euphie, working. She ain’t perfect, but she’s functional, and boy if that ain’t the mood of the year. Anyway kudos to Kelli […]

Culmination of my Experience on Networked Narratives (Self-assessment on The Class)

        My class of Networked Narratives, with Professors Mia Zamora and Alana Levine, has been one of interesting ongoing learning within digital spaces. I can share that my accomplishments and performance within the class were some that provided me with a certain experience, which affected what I enjoyed most, and what I learned in relation to the light and darkness of the internet, and what I took away from it. To put it in simpler words, this […]

“Well, If I Don’t See You…” {Self-Assessment Narrative}

As I look back over the semester, I am proud of myself. Back in January, I walked into a class that I had no knowledge of and frankly, had no idea what I was getting myself into. It was like I listening to another language. In the beginning, I didn't think I would live up … Continue reading “Well, If I Don’t See You…” {Self-Assessment Narrative} →

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 […]
