Meet Eyemymii

  • Meet Eyemymii,

Me, myself and I, I, my, me, Eye, my, me, Eyemymii. That is my “online” name, or warieye –but that one is so old man, even Pepperidge farm cannot remember. So the phenomenon “Internet” is certainly not new to me. In fact I am pretty sure I cannot live without if anymore.

Hi5, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, these are just few of the social media platforms I participate or participated in. Being social, does not only mean being social in real life. Especially with WiFi and 4G-internet, it is possible to stay connected 24/7 –updating how bored you are, changing your profile picture every fifteen minutes, spamming hi.

Yet I do not only use the internet for the media, I use it for gaming too; Runescape, Maplestory, League of Legends, DOTA, Diablo etc.

Combine that with Skype or Teamspeak and I don’t have to type anymore, we can now all scream and rage at each other with lots of love. Plus, now I can hear if a message was meant to be sarcastic or not –dastard.  

However I am not a complete Barbarian. I like art too and I do artsy stuff. I like drawing. I like singing –yes that is an art, and I like making selfies, because I think I am a piece of art myself. I have a deviantart account and if you are my friend on Facebook, you can experience some of my epic drawing skills and selfies.  

 Though, internet does not only help us keeping in touch with each other. It helps us meeting new people, like how we met Nancy and Alan –nice people really, no I am totally not kissing your asses.  

 Sure, I can all teach you about all these wonderful things, but I cannot chew it for you and feed you. Most of the time –I am pretty sure- I will just give you the link to Youtube and Google. Hey, that is how I learn most of the time, plus I am a horrible teacher, since I am too lazy to explain, so go away with your questions. Thanks.  

  • Meet the need for speed my usefulness for the team.

 But first! Did I already introduce you guys to Google? Seriously, if I do not know something, I google –yeah that is an actual verb, in Dutch at least.

 You type in some keywords, you get result, you no get your desired result, you change your keywords, you still no find your desired result, then… -wait for it- KEEP CALM and DON’T FORGET TO BREATH! Lastly ask you team and -if you still cannot figure it out- send your questions to your contact person of your NGO or your supervisor.  

 Ok no, seriously… Hmm… Nope. Cannot think about anything that makes me useful anymore through digital meaning. Wait, well… if for our strategy guide we need comics, I guess I can be your man woman.   

Sorry, no comic this week, ah so lazy~

PS. I get the point where you explain your Digi ID, but after the part of NGO…. Not really? So I hope I did something right there…

PPS: Have not update it for a loooong timem but if you are interested warieye.deviantart.com

Me and technology

Any information about you on the Internet is a digital identification. .A digital identity is an online or networked identity adopted or claimed in cyberspace by an individual, organization or electronic device. You can just write your name in google and find a lot of things, which you or other people post.

I believe I have not enough versed in technology to our generation. But our teachers are contrary in this regard are very advanced, it makes us think that it’s our generation, we need to better understand new technology. I’m trying to change it to myself, learning new programs and technologies. Also I began to notice that im change my phone or computer not when it become old but simply because the company has produced and presented a new model of them. Every day I use a variety of technologies that help me communicate and stay online all the time

It is not so difficult to deal with the new program for me, because I’m always open to something new.Now I’m trying to learn how to use Photoshop with videos that I find on the Internet. That is why I’m a bit excited in learning such new social networks as google+ hangouts and meetingwords.

I can work with a variety of social networks such as tumblr, twitter, Facebook, VK. Also I know how to use such programs as Word, powepoint, excel. And of course I will help my groupmates with this programs if they will have questions or stucks.

I think that my technical skills are progressing position. And finally if we understand how to use all of new software and technology it will help us to further explore the design and engineering.

ON DUTY! – Week 1

Call is on duty and I have finished my first blog for Project Community 2013 -yay me.

 

  • COURSE GOALS:

The goals of this class was quite vague to me when I entered the classroom. Though gradually the puzzle pieces seem to fit into each other –a bit-.

I think some among us were thinking: “What does this have to do with ‘Design’?”

So did I.

Once home, I started giving it a thought. I mean, why else would they give us this course if it has nothing to do with our study? It has to have some meaning to it.  

This is the conclusion were I came up with: NETWORKING and also TEAMWORKING.

Why network? Because this course helps you start contacting different kinds of people from different culture, for my project it would be Sheila. This probably will be helpful in the future. You have to start somewhere and this course really helps you with it.  

Since the term just started, we still barely know each other, here is where the teamwork comes in. Later in “real” life you will also probably be placed with people you have not ever met, but you still have to work with them and make the best out of your team. So I kind of can relate that scenario with my situation now.   

  • EXPECTATIONS:

What I wish to learn is to optimize the use of the internet for networking. Yes, I use Facebook, Youtube, Instagram etc., but for those platforms I use them to keep in touch with my friends, not finding new ones. Where do I have to start searching especially if it is business related? I have no clue.

Also at the end of the semester, I hope to get to know my class a lot better so I can use- I mean- keep in contact with them later in the future.

  • FINISH LINE:

Everybody has a dream. I mean… I want to be the very best. Like no one ever was. Dum-dum-dum-ahem.

So of course I wish everything would go well and that there are no hurdles to the finish line, and that we will finish the race as number one as a team –let’s not forget to mention that.

Though I am already content if we get a passing grade. :D  

BUT! If I may dream bigger: How cool is, if our strategy plan gets chosen to become reality…. My mom would be so proud. :’)

  • GOOD GREAT POINTS ABOUT ME.

What I do know about myself is that I really like to have a clear starting point and an endpoint. Once I figure that out, I can start planning –I really am a great planner, really-, and even though I do not always tend to stick to the plan, it will always work out –somehow. Just… trust me on that.

As long as you do your job, I will do mine. You work, me happy, you no work, me grumpy, means no one happy. L

I guess I am also good at switching between my work- and play-mode. Sure goofing around is a must for stress relief, but once serious business comes to the table, we have to work and I will, kick you in the butt. No one happy, see?

Oh I also like to draw. 
Here is a comic, from me to you, inspired by this week :)

Can you guess the story?

If you did, then I did a good great job haha… If you did not… then I need to start practicing more!

More to come next week! :D

To begin with, I think that this course is a good way to learn how to work in a team, how to organize your project and team project.

community project is a term applied to any community-based project. This covers a wide variety of different areas within a group of networking entities.

According to Dennis D. McDonald (2008), community has a more complex and subtle meaning that refers not only to group members, who are sharing a common goal but also to their internalization of the community’s goals at a more fundamental level than just a simple agreement or disagreement. 

Сommunity project is an integral concept that shows not only how people work together as a team, but as a project organized, how relationship between group members influence on the project, and how the work is actually performed. The success of the work is to ensure that all people in the group were involved in its creation.

Motivation playes an important role in comminity project. People should feel pashionate to the project because, that the more committed one is to a project’s success, the more likely the project will be a success. (Filev, 2009) From the very beginning it is necessary to determine which advantages and disadvantages people have. Also people should define which roles they play in their community (Team leader, coordinator, designer, creator and others). Maximum productivity of the team will lead to successful implementation of any job for any period of time. All project participants need to understand the what exactly they do which will help communities understand the role of project.image

After that, we have to write a plan of our work. What are we going to do first, second and third. We have to do a lot of research about the subject.

And of course we will use social networks, this is a simple way to communicate with eachother. It is very good to share your ideas with your group members when they are far away from you and of course, when they read it, they will better understand what you are exactly mean. There are a lot of different usefull websites, which can help you to communicate faster with eachother, like meetingwords or google+

Also I think that this blogs will be really usefull to understand your groupmates better and faster.
