The second is a vlog entry from early 2013 (http://youtu.be/O51nverG-h8). I believe it addresses some of the issues of online networks, and how the control of our individualized networking is being subverted by logarithms and corporate control of social networking sites (SNS) for profit. To help you contextualize, you may wish to review pages 20-21 of our readings for a brief explanation of collapsed contexts, or you can view Wesch's presentation at the Library of Congress (http://youtu.be/TPAO-lZ4_hU).
Mark KThank you to everyone for your participation. I hope you found it beneficial and informative for your future endeavours with communities and networks whether they be virtual, or traditional.
On November 12, Vim sent an email to the group noting her hesitance about Appmaker and our project as discussed.
After each member responded, it was agreed upon to change the focus of our project away from budgeting to something more feasible.
Dr. G was informed of our decision, and supported the change.
A group discussion was held about the change. Vim suggested using Infinite Monkeys to create an app for a business. Erin suggested teaching coding. Mark offered the continued use of Appmaker, but for a different goal.
An open exchange was held, and it was agreed for the time remaining, and with the work that remains in other classes, Appmaker should be what is presented.
Each member will present a specific function of Appmaker: Narinee will showcase the music functions, and show how to import a file to Appmaker; Erin will highlight the "To do" checklist function; Vim will present the counter and line-graph bricks; Mark will present the text-input and chat possibilities.
Each member will have 12 minutes to make their presentation.
Mark will create a schedule for the presentation and share with the group.
Each presentation will be hands-on.
The new title of our presentation is "The building blocks of Appmaker".
