Reading Response #5 Nicholas Ruskey

For this week’s reading response, I read the article titled: “Territory as Interface.” It was an interesting article that talked about an organization that deals with space, media, and how people interact. They created a media space around a park using specialized equipment that allow people to explore the space in a unique, original way. […]

Reading Response #3, Nicholas Ruskey

The article discussed many studies and then even conducted one of its own, finding […]

App Review, Nick Ruskey

The only problems were due to loading times and confusion as to where the zones were but honestly that was the apps fault not yours. It was just loading a bit slow. I thought the music gave […]

I am not a person who frequently plays games and when I do, I rarely, if ever, play real time […]

Week 2 Reading Response: Nicholas Ruskey

For this week I chose to respond to the article on politeness and interactions towards computers by Byron Reeves and Clifford Nass. I found this article to be particularly interesting in the way it showed that people really do have a sense of politeness when it comes to interacting with computers. The article talked about […]

Blog Post #1 Photo-a-Day: Nick Ruskey

The first week of the photo a day project has gone quite well except for a few bumps. I have been feeling much more confident with my photo taking and editing skills since starting this project. Originally, I had a poor sense of lighting and my subject was generally either under or over exposed. I […]
