Reflection on Gardner Campbell’s Lecture

Tuesday, January 19th, 2010

When Gardner Campbell began his lecture last Thursday with a quote from Kay, I was suddenly very interested with what he had to say.  Gardner said, “A computer is an instrument whose music is ideas.” Growing up with music my entire life has led me to understand the value of creativity.  I was always the […]

Reflections on Gardner Campbell

Tuesday, January 19th, 2010

No Digital Facelifts emphasizes the role of the internet and networking and the personal cyber infrastructure in education. I agree on most fronts. My education has been purely transactional, I haven’t been encouraged to be creative or taught to be creative. That hasn’t stopped me from being creative, but it’s kept me from enjoying school.

A little late but who cares… Gardner Campbell was nice enough to skype with our class and give us his insights on technology and the limitless potential we can use it for with regards to computers. All though most of it went over my head, I was still able to take out some key points […]

Technology, Ignorance, and Photoshop

Friday, January 22nd, 2010

The readings and Gardner Campbell’s talk got me thinking about a few different topics related to technology and using it. First, I liked the idea of a “cyber presence,” and that it’s “not linear.”  The visual of your life on the internet as more like a cityscape got me, and I decided to make a […]

Creating for Ourselves

Thursday, January 21st, 2010

I have to be honest, when I was listening to Gardner Campbell give his talk to our class on skype I was rather jarred. Half of me was thinking “Uh… what?” while the other half was thinking “Oh, wow! I’ve never thought of it like that!” So I just sat there taking notes. Perhaps I […]

Technology: not just "stuff"

Thursday, January 21st, 2010

Listening to Gardner Campbell talk really got me thinking about computers and just how much I use them. I spend a lot of my free time on the computer (mostly on the internet), and it got me thinking: what would my life be like without the internet?  It’s hard to even think about how much […]
