Well, the semester is wrapping up and I have finished editing the short story pages for the wiki. This took a while, of course with stories varying in length, but it is finished. Mainly at this point, I am not too fond of having my picture taken for the site. Not all of us are photogenic and the last thing I want is a picture of me up on a website that I don’t find to be a picture I even feel comfortable with having. I rarely make myself up for class and I’m not going to start tomorrow. I even put both fists up yesterday after the proposal was made, after Professor Chang asked for opinions. I don’t think any decision was really made, but chances are I’m going to show up to class tomorrow with a camera being flashed everywhere…not cool.
Aside from that, it’s been interesting to see how many of us have been able to put up footnotes successfully with the html coding, while others, including myself, have not. At this point, which I felt this might happen, is why I proposed we not try to do anything too fancy that we weren’t positive would work for everyone. I feel for the Continuity team because this is something I think they’re going to end up dealing with, and it could have been prevented.
Nonetheless, I am very proud of what our class has accomplished. This class began as a class that would need to be adapted many times and I feel we have all made it through successfully. The wiki site is functional. Though we may not have all the fancy do-dads, the content is there. The content is why this site is important in the first place. Looking around, I have been very impressed with how we have all pulled our individual work together to form this site. You all should look if you haven’t! It really is something. I honestly am grateful I chose this project for my capstone class versus a long research paper. I have learned more in this class about practical skills that I will need in the future and that is definitely more important than a headache and a 10 page paper that you may or may not be proud of. So for everyone in the class, we did a great job, you all. Let’s drink to that!
