I had my conference with Dr Zamora and profess Alan about my Fieldguide project and we spoke about the topics that I was interesting in. I picked selfie but Pro. Alan said what about people that take selfies in dangerous places. so I said that sounds great and I will look into it. I did and it was amazing what I found out. It spoke about how 250 people died taken selfies on clefs and other dangerous places. Still research more about Death by selfies.
For my Fliedguide, I picked selfies but just like I said in my other blog. It was a Borad topic so i spoke to Dr Zamora and professor Alan Levine and bespoke about different topics. Alan suggested that I should research about people that take selfies in dangerous places, so I said I will look into it. I did some research and I found death by selfies, which I was really surprised to hear the amount of dead by selfies was 250 and over in 2018. I am still working and doing more research on it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AJCnbE_QI0A
This is my Digital Alchemist, its a working progress and i think I like it. I made a new twitter account and a new hypothesis account.
I came up with my field guide topic which was selfies, but I am not sure if that’s what I want to do. I wanted to talk about selfies and photographer, how selfies would take over photography and people would enjoy taken pictures themself without going to the studios to take pictures. Then I thought about selfies in general and why people take selfies. Also why girls take selfies more than boys and is there a reason why? So am working and thinking about my project and if I would change it or run with it.
I am still working on my digital Alchemists. I keep going back and forth about what I want my Alchemist to look like. I still need to work on my Alchemist, because am not used to creating something like this. This is so not me, but I am working hard to do my best. My field guide topic is a bite broad and I need to narrow it down a little bite, and am not sure if that’s what I want to work on.
Memes are so popular now that when someone creates a Meme it spreads like wildfire, but they are funny and they lighting up your day. The question is are Memes copyright and if so who owns them? The answer is no because Memes that are found on the internet have a creator but they are often unknown. The generators of Memes on the internet allows everyone to create their own Memes. So it’s impossible to issue a copyright.
GIF are everywhere you look on the web. People like using them especially when they’re iconic or used to describe words. I read an article on why GIF images are so popular. writing by Hector M. . He spoke about how GIF images are worth a thousand words and that’s why it’s so popular. He spoke about how GIF images were first discovered back in June 15, 1987 and it’s not something new. GIF have taken over the world and millions of people use it which makes it cool and it has became our new communication. I am getting use to it and trying to make my own, so we will see how it comes out.
