I’ve been threatening this for almost a year now. I think the time has come. This is the perfect place and time to kick start the “Engage Me” project. I have access to all kinds of artistic talent and facilities here at Las Positas College and I intend to take advantage.
Since starting this Mass Communications class, I’ve seen some of the more extreme examples of social media’s effect on lives, companies, regimes et al. It is both frightening and inviting at the same time. My little world of beating up liberals on Facebook isn’t even a zit on the butt end of worldwide interconnectivity via this new media.
In class, we are learning to use some of the tools associated with the new media phenomenon. The following is a presentation I created using Prezi.com, a simple but truly amazing tool. I’ve only incorporated the very basic components available in the interest of getting all my assignments done on time. Still, this is a great starting point for my project and I can certainly build on this as I go. It’s important to note that had I tried doing this several years ago, I’d have taken days to do so. I finished this admittedly simple presentation in two hours.
God save me, but I can’t do this fast enough…
