Needless to say, i’m a huge Eva and Franco fan. I try to stay neutral seeing as i TA a class and people should have the opportunity to develop their own feelings and opinions about E&F. The most common opinion is “They are criminals”. Over the summer, Glenn, Mariha, Vanessa, and I went to a show in LA where Eva and Franco were being featured.
This past weekend, i discovered Cleverbot. I asked the Actual Intelligence, if “you think that’s air you’re breathing?”. Since i never really knew how to answer the question, why not ask a computer. It’s answer is the title of the blog post. I also asked it some other questions that i needed the answer to. It answered 2 of the 3 questions. It seems the end of Inception may never have an answer.
Onto P6… I’m torn as to what to what reaction i should have this week.
On Tuesday, I hardly got any questions which got me to believe that either all of you were not doing anything and planning on procrastinating until the weekend OR that you all knew what you were doing.
I REALLY hoped it was the second one.
Thursday morning came along, and i saw some really amazing work that made me go…
So that made me happy and excited to see all of your P6’s.
Unfortunately, MANY of you underestimated the project and so when i went to see the documentation of what you completed this week, it scared me.
This week was only part 1 of building so there is still this whole week to make it up.
DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE THE PROJECT!!!
It will come back to haunt you if you don’t work in lab, ask questions, and come see us during office hours. You have the resources to do these projects but you just need to take advantage of them. We will be in lab on Tuesday and Thursday. Vanessa and I are also available on Friday all day in AS-120.
On that note, i leave you with this gif of Thinh doing a dance
Before i completely lose you, here are the best projects of the week as chosen by me from the 9a class last names M-P.
If your avatar approaches this building in Second Life, you instantly feel like Godzilla. Fortunately for the triplets, the building does not dismantle.
A Mariachi band…Now It’s a Party!!!!!
“When you start to lie so much that you get yourself caught up in almost this false reality of what the lie was but it may not have happened, but if you can convinve yourself of it than that’s your reality.”
“I started to see past the fact that they’re artist. And I started to realize that they’re an idea. They’re question something huge they’re questioning not just art or whether art is a lie. They’re questioning reality, and whether we even know what is reality.”
Hey Rachel, A HUGE ROUND OF APPLAUSE FOR YOU AND YOUR OBSERVATIONS!!!!
I fucking loved your insights and the way you had articulated your answers.
I’m not trying to to pick out favourites or anything, but I have to say, I’m excited and lookforward to reading more of your insights in this class.
Now you make me want to re-read the book again.
I already got out SO MUCH from it the first time around, but I feel that I will get even MORE from it the second time again.
