As of this moment, my intention for this final project is to create a game, video OR analog that incorporates concepts from modern media platforms. For example, in this game, you yourself will be the protagonist fighting off commonly seen tropes from the modern internet trying to navigate the labyrinth of free time. For example, you will encounter a boss called Yourspace early in the game, it will a relatively tame fight. Another example is internet piracy. That battle will be against a pirate and will be a harder battle as its still more of a thing than myspace. Later bosses can include Fakebook, Bitter, and why-fi, things that are more ubiquitous in modern life. There are RPG generating programs that can create these kinds of games that I was thinking of checking out, hence the idea for this project.
The British broadcasting corporation is a household name in regard to news and education. I chose it to be the primary news source for this class because I hope it will provide a breath of fresh air regarding the news stories I consume.
And speaking of news stories that provide a breath of fresh air, I recently came across a news story on the BBC news page about a new method of teaching the blind coding and principals regarding coding. They use physical and audio cues to bring coding to blind students, allowing them to interact with coding in non-visual dimensions. One of its most beneficial utilities is to allow visually impaired and non-visually impaired students to work together in the classroom. The actual objects they interact with are about the size of remotes with two dials instead of buttons and are called “pods”. Each pod represents a single line of code which the learner strings together to form an executable program.
This tool, in the long run, mean more coders will be ready to kick some digital ass. Coding is the basic building blocks out of which our castle of modern technology is built. More builders, especially differently able ones, will undoubtedly take our metaphorical castle to new heights.

Hi folks, if you are reading on this website in all likelihood you are a student or teacher of the class I’m writing this for.
that or you are either going through an intense Odyssey throughout the world wide web and found this page at random. In either case, welcome to my own little cul-de-sac off the information superhighway. This post is a reflection on the experience of creating this website on WordPress.
No, but seriously I am a very private person, so publishing what amounts to a diary for the world to see leaves me with anxiety. And whenever I feel this way, Will Ferrell banging away at a cowbell is the only imagery that can describe my emotional state.
Anyway, this is where I talk about possible additions I will make to the website. Well, I will have you good people know that I will link this website to my SoundCloud as soon as I make a SoundCloud. Then this will be the premier site to find recordings of me passionately reciting dialogs from old silent movies. It might sound like 2 hours of silence but hopefully, I get picked up by a label, after all, there’s a market for everything.
On a more serious note, my goal for publishing this website is to create a tool to use to do well in the class I am currently enrolled in. To that end, I decided to keep it simple and clean. To avoid bright colors and distracting imagery. And to keep the blog posts 200% professional… I think It’s going great so far!!!
Thanks for joining me!
