Locative Media App Review – Abbie Rush

In selecting my space for my locative media app, I really wanted the location to be one with more activity going on, opposed to just a library where people are mostly sitting at desks and there is not much movement happening.

In Evgeny Morozov’s article, “The Death of the Cyberflaneur,” he discusses the downfall of “cyberflânerie” which can be described as aimlessly surfing the internet.

I have started brainstorming ideas for what an interesting but easy How-To video this week, and so far the only ideas I have come up with relate to preparing some sort of snack…classic.
