Beam Me Up! How to Make Your Own Transporter Read more: http://blogcritics.org/scitech... - 1 views

    This is evidence that Dr. Burton and my metaphors in class were not in vain. The transporter is the thing that was used when they said, "Beam me up Scotty". And they made that doing a trick with the camera of glitter and water in a glass. BOOYAH

Twitters - 3 views

  • Twitter can be tricky to explain to a newbie. So Robin Cooper (well, me with my silly voice) decided to call up some people who could help
  •  
    Okay, so really I just think this video is hilarious.  But also, relating to the Vinge book, this humorous video reminds me of Robert when he started to learn how to use his wearable, especially the silent messaging feature.  This video stays funny with every viewing.

      Note the features of this online writing:
      -situates itself relative to ongoing discussion (via explicit reference and links)
      -contains an explicit thesis statement early in the post
      -includes headings to make subsections easier to navigate and the longer post easier to read
      -includes appropriate images to draw interest, break up the text, and illustrate the argument
      -includes mild use of formatting options for emphasis (highlighting in this case)
      -includes hyperlinks to references
      -quotes and cites both traditional and online sources (uses the blockquote formatting for a longer quote)
      -links not only to sources for quotations, but to relevant entities or organizations, or to discussions of the issue (maybe less scholarly, but timely and relevant)
      -rhetorically, it lays out a story about the past, situates a phenomenon in the present, and discusses the impact for the future of these ideas within our more mediated digital environment
      -includes relevant tags
      -has received comments from others (due in part to the author "pinging" or announcing that he'd published a post on his blog via Twitter or other social media

Internet Archive starts backing up digital books on paper - 3 views

  •  
    this is interesting but how do they KNOW what the "original copy" is. and I just submitted a random homework assignment as a "book" to IA as a test to see if we could upload a copy of our ebook that we wrote as a class for ENGL 295. Are they just going to store those "books" people randomly upload as well? Who determines what goes in the hardcopy archive?

    That is sounds like it could be the headline for The Onion!
