Nugget #2

I will use Ted Nelson’s phrase as my biggest inspiration: “Technology is an expression of man’s dreams. If man did not indulge his fantasies, his thoughts alone would inhibit the development of technology itself” – Ted Nelson It goes well with what I chose to talk about in this second nugget. I’ve been reading and… […]

Movies and dreams

I’ve been looking for sources that may be helpful to my inquiry project and I found an article from a News chain that may be helpful. It discusses the changing from film to digital mainly for cinema theaters and their projections of the movies.  The nugget I picked is the following:   “We still call them “motion… […]

First of all, one of the things that I found most interesting and curious about this text was that I found myself reading about stuff that was written as a visionary and futuristic plan, but almost all of those things described are so widely used today and incorporated, or at least easy to get, in… […]

Personal Dynamic Media

The particular example captured in the pictures shows patients lining up for service in emergency. It indicates that there is insufficient staff available in that important area. I picked this as my nugget, because of how short staffed the emergency room actually is. We should all know how long it takes to wait to be…

Medium and Messages

by

“Every message is, in one sense or another, a simulation of some idea. It may be representational or abstract.”(“Alan Kay and Adele Goldberg, “Personal Dynamic Media”) This is an interesting statement that the author made. Based on this idea, a message can be sent from one person to another that represent what they are thinking.… […]

Computer Lib/Dream Machine

by

Computers are simply a necessary and enjoyable part of life, like food and books. Computers are not everything, they are just an aspect of everything, and not to know this is computer illiteracy, a silly and dangerous ignorance.   I think that this really hits home with today’s society. I see a lot of people…

Personal Dynamic Media Nugget #5

by

My nugget for “Personal Dynamic Media” by Alan Kay and Adele Goldberg comes in pretty early, on the second page after the Introduction. Nothing in this article struck me as much as the section that Kay and Goldberg discuss using children as their “user community” to test the Dynabook. Specifically, these two sentences:“Another interesting nugget […]

Ultimate test = children’s reactions

by

I found it interesting that the Dynabook was first tested through the use of children, ” at that time we became interested in focusing on children as our “user community.” Which makes sense when you really think about. If the device can pass the test of keeping children entertained and they were able to comprehend on how… […]

CL/DM Nugget #4

The introduction to this book was daunting! After reading Augmenting Human Intellect, when a disclaimer was given to this book, I was completely prepared to be bored out of my mind. But I wasn’t! The opposite, actually. I found that Ted Nelson’s “Computer Lib/Dream Machines” was actually quite easy to read and more entertaining than […]
