The day I didnt come to class

To be honest I did not watch the full documentary of “start Up.com” because I wasn’t present at class during the day it was shown. However, I did watch the final 20-30 minutes of the video. My first impression of it is you can tell its pretty old when the color is all wacky and the phones, they use are obsolete compared to what we use today. Personally, I didn’t enjoy the documentary and find it very boring but on the topic of. bomb it was quite informative. We see how company were trying to join that internet hype train where investors invested in inflated ideas and eventually lead many businesses going bankrupts or being bought out by other bigger corporations. During the final 30 minutes of the film, Tom Herman became a little prick by trying to sue his own company because of personal reason and argument with Kaleil. I just thought it was a childish move because if he was trying to help the company move forward, he should of just step down as Co- CEO, take his paid vacation of 2 mo…

The boring speaker

To be honest at first i was excited for our guest speaker since it was talking starting a companies and business. But as it continues I didn't find the guest speaker lecture that helpful and I also kind of feel annoyed mainly because I have a hard time grasping his theme. At first, he was talking about the books he wrote and the history of how he goes into writing books and then he was talking about his radio business in Tacoma. The lecture was bouncing back and forth between history and his business. So at the end I assume it's something about entrepreneurship but at the point his just kind of boasting about his business not really that informative in terms of enlightening us about starting a business and how to get there. In addition, he also talked about his web development career early on in his life. I'm not sure how it relates to the entrepreneurship theme lecture, But I guess it has do something about marketing your product and services via social media and online. …

Project idea

I am not too sure what I want to talk about for my presentation for my project but I do have a general idea since my criminal justice class is talking about cyber crime and my group decides to do a presentation for it I might as well reused something from my TCRIM class and present for this. Not only it saves me time and some effort but also it's along the lines of computers and technology. In terms of what specifics of cyber crime topic of cyber crime I think I'm planning to do something in regards to cyber crimes, hacking, DDoS etc. Some of the mainstream and less known cyber crime that people don't always know about which I will touch upon. If this doesn't go as I plan I might do something else like artificial intelligence or VR both of these subjects are pretty hot right now especially VR games I find the most interest in between the two. The reason why I am excited for VR because not too long ago I watch a movie called Ready player one. It absolutely blew my mind …

Journalism lagging behind

In regards to journalism the topic is fairly new to me I'm a person that doesn't read much magazine or news so I had to do a little research on this topic. From what I have seen and experience so far journalism has come a long way especially we are living in the digital age where everything and everyone is connected to the media in some form. Journalism used to be something people take pride for and seek the truth of a certain news or topic. But as technology progress and evolved better and better every day, journalism seems to be lagging behind. In terms of moral and value. For example, journalism used to be a prestigious job for certain individuals where they take time to physically go to a location and seek the news and information. But with smartphones, computers, and the web it made journalism seem less credible because a lot of information can be posted as “fake news” where it makes the public lose faith in some big journalism firms. In addition, mega-corporation control…

PTSD FLASH BACK ASSIGNMENT

I did have some experience on programming way back when I was still a freshman in high school. Even though I was still rusty on creating a website this assignment was still fairly easy for me since it just creating a webpage with minimal text and picture content. The most challenging part for me was not using a proper programming software. Using only a text-based editor application (notepad) it was challenging for me to decode some bugs, for example, multiple times I kept forgetting to put end tags or "/" because I was used to having a programming software to help me fill in the end tags and debug lines of code if there were any mistakes. In some parts, the assignment I kept referring to google to refresh my memory especially when adding pictures and links. For pictures the syntax was <img src="url"> and for links it was <a href="url">. In total the assignment took no more than 15 minutes to finished. This assignment reminded me a lot of my hi…

Email or mail?

In today's age, everything seems to be digitized including our mail. Mail has become obsolete nowadays mainly due how slow the process it takes to get information from one end to another. In addition, you need a pen and paper which can be somewhat harmful to the planet where we are using more trees. Email, on the other hand, is more convenient, at present most people have some sort of smartphone or computers. This gives the user access to mailing anytime at anywhere as long you have some sort of internet connection. Sending email is instantaneous compared conventional mailing, where emails could take days, weeks or months meanwhile email takes a press of a button which literally takes in total 1 min or so. The email also has a feature to spell check and proofread your content while mail you have to do it manually in some cases you have to rewrite your letter if the mistakes were too big. From the looks of it, E-mail is superior to mail in every aspect speed, productivity, and effi…

The filler course

To be honest I did not expect too much from this course. When I first read the course description I thought I knew what I kinda sign up for, but I guess I was wrong. Since the first day of class, it seems pretty chill it fitted my schedule and it was only 3 credits. So it gave me a lot of breathing room for other harder courses since this course is somewhat on the easy side. I've always been fascinated by new cutting-edge technology mainly because of it exciting to see what new tech can change society and the world again. I think this class might help me along the road for a IT or CS major at UWT. In addition, I also want to learn some history about the computer and the internet since I am a PC gamer I always wonder what the first PC was like and how it came to be the computers we know today. I’m running things to talk about the course so I’ll just talk a little about myself. My name is John Huang, currently a sophomore at UWT. I'm trying to major in CS or IT but I'm still…
