Syntax Terror – The Media Show 

The Media Show continues!

Email goes horribly astray when the new intern tries to help Weena with her... hamster problem. Lesson learned: You never know whose hands your message will fall into if you spell that address wrong. Even spell check can't save you.

A Democratic Agency  ☆

For me, the story about EdLab—its purpose, vision, and strategy—boils down to the goal of democracy. This post is a reflection on today's seminar by Gary Natriello, but I think it may also resonate with anyone who's a part of a similar organization. Gary articulated a vision of the future of the education sector that …

Reposted from Learning at the Library. Written by Leanora Lange.

While researching for one of my library science classes, I recently came across two different manifestos  for the Digital Humanities.  Digital Humanities has been an increasingly hot topic over the last five years or so, thanks to an increasing amount of humanities scholars blogging on scholarly topics (some examples are Planned Obsolescence

A Service Design Opportunity  ☆

I just participated in a two day workshop run by Engine, a UK design group that focuses on applying diverse design processes to designing customer-oriented services. The workshop focused on designing services that are complex by nature, usually involving "four P's": People, Places, Processes, and Products (not to be confused with the four P's of marketing). …

First Day with Engine 

I just finished my first day of a 2-day "Service Design Workshop" run by Engine – a design group that focuses on service design. What is service design? It's pretty much as simple as it sounds, design processes applied to designing services. Of course, there's the challenge: services are complex by nature, involving "four P's": People, …

Drawing and an Argument for its Autonomy 

Should the ability to draw be seen as a literacy? Is it sensible to characterize the act of drawing as the reduction of  multi- dimensional events to readable two-dimensional imagery? Last Thursday I was lucky to attend a lecture and conversation by Professors Stephen Farthing and Simon Betts on "The Bigger Picture of Drawing: A New Curriculum …

World of 100 

Information about the world as if it were a village of 100 people -- a simple design and a powerful effect. Nice work Toby Ng!


Reposted from The Data Art Review. Written by Jihii Jolly.

Even when statistics are clearly represented as visuals, understanding data is difficult. We're not so naturally inclined to to understand statistics in relation to our personal, daily lives. An emerging method of providing people with the tools to achieve that contextual understanding is through interactive graphics, such as the 9/11+ME project (which uses Facebook or …

Check This Out: Ethnocharettes 

This is an interesting example of "design" being an inspiration for a day-long collaborative event. Interesting in many ways, but especially for the marathon-like duration. (It seems like it might not have been worth it . . .)

For those interested in developing courses that integrate ethnographic methodologies and social theory with the modeling practices of designers I suggest checking out the innovative work of the University of California Irvine's Center for Ethnography.

Around the Campfire at IR12 

The Twitter hash for the conference was #ir12. I had a chance to meet Mike Monello from Campfire and hear about his work in transmedia marketing. Monello was one of the producers on the Blair Witch Project. I also went to a panel about communities and behaviors of fans online.

Richard Eldridge Day 

The first chapter to Richard Eldridge's An Introduction to the Philosophy of Art provided a good basis for discussion in class last week. He really shows off his interest in Romanticism, and his leanings towards a Pragmatic philosophy of art. We talked about the problem of "not having a perfect philosophy," located some philosophizing …

Two Steves 

I'll be using my friend Steven Wolkoff's work as a talking point in class tomorrow. This kind of formalism gives us a lot to think about. What happens if/when students make art like this in school? How can a teacher approach it? What could they say about it to other students? These kinds of questions …

Intellectual Cosmopolitanism  ☆

I'm getting excited for the upcoming New York Times' Schools for Tomorrow conference, and working on my presentation. I'll be on the "Tools Available (college-level)" panel, and I'd like to convey some ideas about the future balance between tradition and timeliness in the academy. It's hard to articulate an interesting position in the 5-10 minutes that …

As preparation for the lecture and group activity (collaboratively writing philosophies of art education), we read: Ursula Niklas’ “On the Philosophy of Teaching Philosophy of Art” to …

I like Wall's quick look at the realities of entrepreneurship: Why MBAs Fail at Entrepreneurship, and in particular his inclusion of the problem of workers with a sense of entitlement.
