Podcasts are pretty cool, though I haven't really found the killer app for me yet. Since I don't own an iPod, I don't really have that available to listen to the casts on. So, for the most part, I just have to listen to them on my computer. Not always what I want to do, to be honest, because I'm usually busy with other things.
For that reason, a podcast that does work for me is the audio commentary podcast for Battlestar Galacticca. It's like having the comment track on a DVD. Nice! And it's something I would use--since I'd just play it off the laptop as I'm watching the show, it doesn't distract me from what I'm doing. Instead, it adds to it.
It's good to see that I have company. Here's my bathroom hack from fall of 2006, where I added audio triggered by the IR sensor on the 10th floor sink:
The best part was that I left a "record" button on the device underneath, so people could sample their own voices, music, sounds, whatever. Hence, audio graffiti.
Notes from the Major Studio: Interactive class.
I'll be blogging for the Major Studio: Interactive class for the rest of this semester. I may also blog about my other classes, but I'll keep those tucked away under my main blog section.
I graduated from the University of Virginia, Phi Beta Kappa, with an honors degree in Anthropology. I spent the last eight years as a programmer for various dot coms with varying longevities. I'm a mostly self-taught hacker, which means I have the right combination of pig-headedness and lack of social skills to get pretty good at it. Foo.
I have a lot of odd interests, but here are a few, in no particular order, that have tickled me recently:
Welcome to my Major Studio: Interactive class page. Most of my work, for now, will appear on the blog. All the work I do in the class will appear there, so keep an eye open for the torrent of new stuff that will appear week after week.
