A plea for submissions. [Mar. 19th, 2006|07:12 pm]
MIT Comparative Media Studies - Journal

We're planning to get a portion of the CMS journal online sometime in the next few weeks, so we could use some content. So, anything you've written that you consider particularly new, or interesting, or, for lack of a better term, good, would be much appreciated. The journal mailing list doesn't seem to be working for me at the moment, so if you could send 'em on down to rauch.p@gmail.com, that'd be just dandy.

(Also sent via email, but, hey, cover all the bases, ere going to the flyers.)

In which we learn about cross-posting. [Dec. 13th, 2005|08:50 pm]

I wrote this for class, and then decided I'd exploit that fact to rectify my dearth of recent LJ posts. Cross-posted to my personal journal, where it appears in an inconsiderate, non-cut fashion.

Abu Ghraib, The Punisher, and a startling lack of italics.Collapse )

That was long.

I'm attempting to locate literary theories which focus on personal experience and physicality, so other recommendations are also welcome.

Most hated Advertising Techniques [Dec. 11th, 2004|10:21 pm]

Take Jakob Nielsen articles with a grain of salt--I think he tends to frequently be over-pessimisstic--but still he definitely does his research, whereas a lot of people who claim to know about the web and how it works are still using a lot of guesswork

Speaking of Computer Speech and Emotions... [Dec. 9th, 2004|03:50 pm]

Re conversations from Prof. Turk's class, I posted to my LJ an article which addresses this very subject. Ilya, here is a link from the article which provides a history of speech synthesized voices, including the rabid-sounding Whispering Wendy (one day I am going to hook that voice up to a personal security system and scare the socks off of anyone who tries to break into my system/house/hovercar)

Wow! It's getting to the point where I think the mashup of Hip-hop and Cyberpunk are ruling the digital revolution! So great!!!

Can we start an archive of links to fun stuff, since it is the freakin future of music??? I'll get it started:

Joellen's post to the CMS mailing list
The Long Tail
by Chris Anderson, editor-in-chief, Wired magazine
http://www.wired.com/wired/archive/12.10/tail.html

reminded me that the day the Bioware folks were in town doing their presentation at Sloan, they were also talking to a local game company about the possibility of distributing games through their online store. I s anyone producing/selling games strictly through an online store?

Games and Virual Marketing Article, by Henry Jenkins [Dec. 3rd, 2004|01:55 pm]
MIT Comparative Media Studies - Journal

kestrell
I posted it to my own LJ
http://www.livejournal.com/~kestrell
The article includes a lot of really good info/links. Also, for anyone interested in this topic, I would recommend two science-fiction stories, the first a shor story by Verner Vinge called "Fairmont High," (available for some price like a dollar on
http://www.fictionwise.com)
and the second a book by William Gibson, Pattern Recognition.
