Dear Cliomates, Thanks for your helpful comments on the design project, I’m returning from Jakarta this evening and will be back in the US Wed PM. It’s been fun following your comments from the other side of the world. The design projects are looking great — we’ve all come a long way this semester!!
I made what I hope are constructive comments on the designs posted so far–sorry to miss Tues class, because my critical eye is calibrated by your comments in class. I made some comments on designs by Mark , Steven, John and Chris.
Laura sounds like she’s tackling an ambitious re-work of CHNM–Since Laura’s such a creative designer, I commented that we might benefit from seeing some of the designs rejected as vicarious experience.
Thanks to Tad for reporting on alternative reality games–I commented how they are similar to military wargames done in the Pentagon
The Powerpoint Briefings I’ve watched this week had every possible bell and whistle activated and I commented to Marty that they could benefit from some cleaner design principles.
Lastly, thanks to Ken for identifying how to get comments up and running. There seem to be many ways to skin that cat and getting web 2.0 interaction going…an integrated blog/web page is how I’m approaching the need, considering a wiki might be another. Comment to ken on Web forums.
