Eleventh Hour – ds106 Blues

1 Comment on Eleventh Hour – ds106 Blues

As our eleventh hour of this course approaches, I’m experiencing a twinge of sadness. Part of that is because this has been the saddest season of watching “The Wire”.  It’s hardest for me to watch the kids and how messed up their parents and their home lives are.  Namond’s mother wanting him to be more like his father, the “good soldier” who worked for the Barksdales and watching kids who hold their food stamp cards and manage the family finances is tough. The other part of the melancholy is the end-of-semester closing down.  It always seems like it comes so soon and there’s still so much that I want to do and this course is no exception.  It’s been a great ride.

Wow, it’s been a TON of work and overcoming technology learning curves and using new tools to craft stories. I think I’m going to have to be #ds106 4 life because I’ve got this folder on my computer desktop called “future ds106” where I’ve been stashing ideas, sound clips, and pics that I run across.  It was supposed to be stuff that I would use in future assignments, but here we are at the end and my folder still has stuff in it. It’s 4 life!
