I’ve made a good start on tidying up my blog this week, finally getting around to finishing off several draft posts from earlier course blocks. There’s still more to do though and I’m grateful for these two weeks to get the work done. I’ve not felt any compulsion to edit existing posts, where I have added comments I’ve clearly marked them as additions to maintain the authenticity of the ‘lifestream’.
I have also been researching predictions for the future of social media, machine learning and artificial intelligence. There are a couple of items relating to this in this week’s blog posts and my reflections on them are included where I have had time to reflect on the ideas expressed in the relevant videos and articles. I intend to add more metadata to these during this week.
Currently I’m full of cold and feeling pretty grim so I’m hoping I’ll be over that in the next few days and ‘on my game’ for the final furlong. An idea I’ve had for how to present my ‘web essay’ will require some testing to see if it will work as I intend it to. It’s a concept that takes its cue from the film ‘Sliding doors’ and will be presented in video format, a medium I’m reasonably comfortable with and one that I haven’t made use of in the course so far. Fingers crossed!
