All posts for the month September, 2015

I was working on my ICM homework. To which, surprisingly, I was able to do successfully what I wanted to do on my sketch.  Then I began to research what to do next.  Okay watch the Schiffman video, cool.  Watching and following along, download cyberduck, great! Installed great!  Go to the hosting site and find out the name of the ftp and password, great!  Select sftp, skreeeeech! Screen Shot 2015-09-07 at 5.58.44 PM

What does this mean!

So I am looking through the hosting wiki and I can’t find anything to help.  Meh.


I was able to successfully post the sketch via ftp but not via sftp

I figured out  how to switch from ftp to sftp.  It was on the github page for our class homework. Duh.

I am learning all sorts of things about code just from having to upload my homework to github.  Syntax is very important.

After playing around with lots more parameters I think I have arrived on something I like. Or at least I hope my classmate likes. 🙂


A physical interaction is one in which the participants know by way of input and feedback that the interaction is taking place.

A good physical interaction plays upon the strengths of the participants.

Televisions are good examples of what Crawford would call participatory, but not interactive digital technologies.  The television generally receives infrequent input from the participant, the viewer, and will only play what is selected by the viewer.  The viewer in turn may talk to the television, much like the movie example Crawford gives, but the TV doesn’t alter its performance based on the suggestions offered by the viewer.  It also occurs to me that in calling one of the participants the viewer one may know all they need to know about whether or not a television is interactive or not.
