We were given time to work on our projects rather than go to class today, but I have already been researching quite a bit.
I am looking at music in Atlanta, and I have spent quite a lot of time looking at venues. After bouncing around on Google, I have come up with these venues:
These venues make many lists found on these sites:
I really want to use all of these venues in my presentation, but I am still trying to work out how I will put it all together. I’m satisfied with the research that I have done so far, but I still have this to do list for the project:
I plan on getting the photos and research completed over Thanksgiving break when I have more time to drive around the city. I want to come back to class next Tuesday with all of my media so I can just focus on putting all of the information together in a multimedia component.
Overall, I’d say this project looks like it will be pretty fun!
The first thing that I noticed about the site (http://www.yahoo.co.jp/) was that it is very busy. There are a lot of links on the one page. However, I did recognize many of the icons on the page. I also understood some of the links based on what the picture next to them was. For example, I assume that the block containing the baseball picture is linked to the sports page. The language is so different though that I doubt that I would be able to gather any other information besides what the pictures can tell me. I think that the site definitely has some language barriers and some cultural barriers. For example,unless we are in the World Series, the US rarely puts baseball at the top of the front page.
“With the capacity to customize and make individualized selections, how does the emerging world of interactive media represent a significant change from the commonly shared experience of mass media?”
This article details how the internet offers users many different experiences that can influence what they determine to be their own style. Because websites come in many different formats and styles, internet users are able to make their own decisions about what interests them. While websites used to be pretty generic, causing people to like the same things, people’s interests have grown as more and more choices are presented. As the art of web design develops, interests in design have expanded as well.
