[Photo taken while walking in the Missouri State campus wearing Glass] Sometimes I get a great idea and don't have time to write about it at that moment. This is one of those times. It's probably no secret that I was part of the Google Glass beta and that I used that time fairly purposely, … Continue reading Post-Glass post
This Missouri State student would love to have Google Glass. He doesn't know all it can do, but he's ready to have hands-free photos, video, texting, and email. That seems to be the big draw for most people who see me wearing it--the convenience.
This week and next I am blogging from Ohio State University and the Digital Media and Composition Institute. The photo below was taken by one of the participants who tried on my Google Glass for the first time. She scrolled thrown the cards, saw the "take a picture" option, tapped, and exclaimed "It did it!" … Continue reading Day 2 (day 1 for me) at DMAC
Thanks to the generosity of my university, I was able to borrow this sweet Macbook Pro to use at DMAC (The Digital Media and Composition Institute at Ohio State University). It's taking a while to download all those Project 365 photos and video clips, but it's getting there. I feel like an artist preparing for a … Continue reading DMAC bound
Sony agreed with me that the Cybershot was under warrantee and the problem was not my fault. I'm noting this because when does that ever happen? Well, it did. I will pick up my camera from the good people at Lawrence Camera tomorrow. Not to doubt all of the niceness and good-will here, but I … Continue reading We return to our regularly scheduled programming tomorrow

Yes, watching soccer and … Continue reading Unexpected
Most people will recognize that quote from the end of Back to the Future. I may not get my flying car, but I am getting Google Glass. Even though I need my copies of Remediation and Lingua Fracta, I also need to be home for a package I'm expecting from Norman, Oklahoma. So, I'll do that today. Yes, … Continue reading Future tech now, part 1: “Where we’re going, we don’t need no road.”
I am hunkering down and dividing my time between writing and reading for a steampunk article I'm working on. My big question today is, what are the most beloved steampunk movies or television shows and why are they so beloved? I have some ideas and of course, my favorites, but am very interested in what … Continue reading Steampunk in the movies
i just signed up to be an Explorer for Google Glass, me and a gazillion other people. The form had a drop-down menu of choices for the reason why I wanted Google Glass, but hey! I'm a writer, so I want another chance with more words. If Google is as all-knowing and all-seeing as some … Continue reading Pick me!
Geoffrey Sauer on Eserver writes an excellent post, Net Neutrality and the Digital Humanities, that details why the recent decision from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia to prevent the FCC from enforcing "net neutality" policies is a threat to more than our Netflix or YouTube access. Here is another view, from … Continue reading Academics need bandwidth too
