Live Tweeting: Reflection #2

Originally posted on Madeleine Baker:
This second time around, I believe my live-tweeting game has slightly progressed since the first reflection. In these last 4 weeks, we watched I, Robot (2004), Robot and Frank (2012), Marjorie Prime (2017), and Blade Runner 2049 (2017) in our weekly screenings in BCM325. Admittedly, I thoroughly more enjoyed these screenings…

Future Cultures – Beta Reviews

homebrew drafts.

Beta 1 – Maddy Baker’s The Horticultural Solution

I thoroughly enjoyed Maddy’s digital artefact concept – a series of media-rich blog posts focusing on the future of agriculture and the potential for micro-agriculture technologies, even for students on a tight budget, to support growing one’s own food.

I simply cannot watch a movie and tweet at the same time, I probably missed at least one-third of the movies because of the tweeting. It is really weird because even though I am struggling I am enjoying it in some way.

I like being able to share my thoughts about the film while it is playing and everyone that is interacting is watching it with me. I especially like being funny or at least trying to be, by posting memes and GIFs. This meme of Will Smith from when we were watching I, robot, seemed to interest fellow students and engage them.

It got eight likes and two comments, which is…
