I finally feel good about our site and how great it looks.  This last week has been extremely tense and tiring, to say the least, but it is worth it.  We still have things to do, but it is no longer overwhelming.  I really enjoyed seeing all the projects today and I cannot believe the […]

Uploading Videos

Tonight I stayed after school to try and upload some videos, but the college’s server is slooooooooooooooow.  It is not like I am not already challenged!  After downloading the multi-file uploader, I started to upload Dean Rucker’s clips. Yes, they are all done! But Google’s multi-file uploader is even slower than the regular one, which […]


Todays readings were very interesting.  The one in particular that I liked was about blogging.  I think this article would have been more appropriate at the beginning of class, since I have fought the whole blogging part of this class.  For me, it put blogging in a new perspective.  Maybe I am just worn down?

Getting More Organized

I think part of what has been bothering me about our project is that we seemed to lack organization and structure for our archival material.  So yesterday I created an exhibit for each person in Omeka.  Although it was tedious and time consuming, I think in the long run it will get our project completed and […]

Inching along

This this last week was awful, but I think that meeting with Andy Rush twice last week gave me some hope.  I now can transfer the dvms myself.  Although it takes about sixty minutes to transfer the tapes, while sitting there, I worked on other things for the project.  Our group is meeting on Thursday and hopefully we will get some closure on […]

Presentation Today

I was feeling okay about the project until class today.  I feel like we lost the class and we were all over the place.  Let’s narrow our focus and polish the site, then we can move on to other things.  Matt has really done a great job of the site design, but he needs help […]


These last few weeks have been quite frustrating.  We are doing a lot of behind the scenes work, including editing, research and Omeka uploads.  Although all is going well, it is taking exponentially more time than we ever imagined and we all seem to be getting bogged down.  On the upside, Dr. McClurken and Patrick fixed our […]

Editing Videos

I started to edit my videos last night.  It was a lot more time consuming than I expected.  Since we are approaching this project as an alternative way to look at history, it is much harder.  For example, one of my interviewees jumps back and forth between events that were four years apart, so it is hard to understand the historical […]


After looking at many different wikis,wiki discussions and wiki historys, I have to say  the one thing that comes to mind is wow! I think that the discussions in many of the wikis is often a dialogue between two differing sides.  Maybe it is the wikis system of che cks and balances. Although I would never use a […]

Contact with Alumni

I am very excited, since some of the alums that I interviewed on Saturday have already e-mailed me back wanting to give me more artifacts or additional footage.  It appears that after our interview, they thought of many more things that they want to share.  I guess maybe in the future we should broaden our scope of […]
