Digital imaging in our times is very crucial, and its very important to know its beginnings, revolution, and impact on our society. We are going to show the transition from old fashion film cameras to advanced digital ones. We will describe how the digital imaging works, and we weight its advantages and disadvantages over its predecessors. Significant part of our research paper its going to include the improvement on our technological life.
The topic of our research is the negative effect of planned obsolescence on consumers of the cellphone device industry. There are no positive effects for the consumers. If Androids and iphones continue to use planed obsolescence it will encourage other companies to follow similar trends.
This caught my eye today–we’re all watching Sandy, but luckily most of the information out there is more direct and simple than this! Maybe we can try rewriting it in class next week.
You will need two books for this course:
Diana Reep’s Technical Writing, 8th Ed
Luciano Flordi’s Information: A Very Short Introduction
Links to other readings will be posted on this page in reverse chronological order–so the reading for the next class should be the first one you see below!
Before class on Oct 31, read:
Reep, Chapter 7 (“Writing for the Web”)
What Is Information Architecture?
Starting Out Organized
After using Prezi for our in-class presentation on Wednesday I have to admit that I am surprised. Until now there was basically one universal tool known to me; PowerPoint. Prezi seems to have an enormous potential, maybe even to surpass the Microsoft’s ultimate and leading application. This new and innovative tool was really interesting and fun to play with. A lot of new and fresh ideas were implemented; nice and clear interface for convenience of use or even the eye-soothing look. Prezi might be the future’s leading presentation application.
The group presentation we did in-class on Wednesday was challenging, due to the fact that, I had no prior experience using Prezi. In the past, I used only Microsoft PowerPoint to develop my presentations. Prezi is a very good tool which provides more options to developing a presentantion whereby you can add pictures from the Internet in a very efficient way by using the ‘insert’ tool and I am really excited about being introduce to it. The little time that was given in class to practice using Prezi, as a group we were able to create a very good presentation.
