My first blog

How do you understand our class goals?

We can understand our class goals by sharing our thoughts to one another. This can create different points of views which we can all think about. With different perspectives on our class goals, we can see which one is the most reasonable and work from there. 

What do you need and want to learn as you/we explore the different themes from application of online communities and networks to open innovation design?

I would like to learn about other ways to communicate with one another. Facebook is clearly the easiest way to get messages across and keeping up to date with what people are up to, but Google Hangout was definitely an eye opener for me. It looked like there was a bit of a struggle with connecting with one another but otherwise, it seemed fast and simple, which is really handy. 

What would you like the outcome of your team’s project to look like?

I would like the outcome of our project to be as professional as possible. Everyone should know their role and put in as much effort as they could possible without overdoing it and making a mess. A nice clean project would also give a good impression on what our team is like. So far communication is there and so is motivation, I hope we can keep this up until the very end. 

What “specialty quality” will you bring and contribute?

One special quality I can bring and contribute is producing music. The music I produce could be put in videos and I could even make the sound fit the theme of the video. Another quality I have is drawing. I am very aware of different light sources in sketches or drawings as well as vanishing points. With these skills, I can draw many things to scale and even make it pop up with shading and light sources. 

I am looking forward to working with such a motivated team!

  1. Hi Zakk, nice post. Love that music part! It’s always hard to find music for videos and if you can create stuff yourself at least you don’t have to worry about any copyright issues! Being the artist often makes you vunerable. You don’t have to master all skills of being a manager but communicate well to those you work with. It will make your life a lot easier!
    Look forward to your next blog post.

  2. Do you mean Yang Yang?

  3. Great Blog, is this Zakk? Can’t be sure if you don’t give it a name I can recognize. Maybe you could add this somehow? Looking forward to being treated to some of that music!

      Hello Laura, yes this is me, Zakk. I noticed it didn’t have my name when it got linked here so I changed my name on tumblr, but it didn’t change on here. I think on my next blog it should show up fine.

        I may have been mistaken, the name change will be reflected on the sidebars, but it will not correct older posts. I can do some changes manually.
