The Origins


Not that a location defines a person but I’m California born and raised living in Japan. In my high school years I fell in love with Hip Hop Culture, not to be confused with hip hop music. This love has crafted my goals into the hope of sharing and nurturing the culture through a progressive web media company which has led me here. “Where exactly is here” my imagined voice of you readers asks… here is in the ds106 course.

Digital Storytelling (also affectionately known as ds106) is an open, online course that happens at various times throughout the year at the University of Mary Washington… but you can join in whenever you like and leave whenever you need. This course is free to anyone who wants to take it, and the only requirements are a real computer, a hardy internet connection, preferably a domain of your own and some commodity web hosting, and all the creativity you can muster.

(I’ve been on wordpress using this blog for 8 months now and that’s my first block quote.)

Aside from hopefully improving my writing skills, it seems like this course will force me to experiment with various mediums which I find both interesting and a tad bit terrifying. You can check out the course’s promo video below if you’re interested. This concludes my first post for the course, wish me luck and follow me to see how experimental it gets!!

Have you ever heard of the course or are you interested?? Let me know in the comments!!
