Analyzing the Obvious

AnalyzingtheObvious-Screenshot1-300x145.png
The trickiest part, for me, is initially coming up with an idea to research. After that, I feel as though the research process is fairly easy. After I wrote my observations regarding my primary text, I chose to pose my research question as: “Of what use are robots to surgeons?” So, I went about researching. I started my […]

Nugget for “Man-Computer Symbiosis”

by

“Man- Computer Symbiosis” by J.C.R. Licklider It seems likely that the contributions of human operators and equipment will blend together so completely in many operations that it will be difficult to separate them neatly in analysis. That would be the case it; in gathering data on which to base a decision, for example, both the man […]

Dreaming with Groupthink

by

After reading through my classmates “Reporting my Dream” post, it confirmed for me that I would like to work with my post regarding Human Rights Watch. None of my classmates had posts similar to mine, which confirmed for me even more that this is what I should stick with. #Dreamingwithgroupthink #Groupthink

Reporting My Dream

“Mirna, why are you so interested in human rights? Why do you read such depressing articles and watch such horrendous documentaries, haven’t you had enough?

While reading the associative trails of my classmates, I found a clear theme: we are all a bit scatterbrained. It was easy to see that many people began in a certain direction whilst searching for their primary text and ended up browsing through various random websites and social media sites (usually, I do exactly the […]

Associative Trails for “As We May Think” Nugget

AssociativeTrailforAsWeMayThink-1-300x168.jpg
Taking a screenshot of my history after I completed my nugget post truly opened my eyes to my thought process. I have always thought of myself as an indecisive thinker in that I will usually start with one idea for an assignment and then end up with dozens of other ideas, making it very stressful to decide which idea […]

Nugget for “As We May Think”

by

I find the paper “As We May Think” by Dr. Vannevar Bush awing in more ways than one. His elegant writing and surplus of intriguing information is captivating, but it is his predictions that truly amaze me. It is astonishing to me that in his paper published in 1945, Dr. Bush accurately predicts the invention of modern technology such as the electronic calculator […]

The sun beaming down on the glittering ocean, the calming crash of waves, the scent of salty air, the sweet serenity… Thinking, for me, involves envisioning the beach. Imagining the feeling of the sun and the sounds of the ocean calms and centers me. It prepares me and helps me collect my thoughts.
