brunch with beth
spent the morning having brunch with my buddy beth kolko who, as usual, is working on three or four equally interesting projects. then we walked up the street for a marathon grading session at verite coffee in ballard. it's great to have friends in your neighborhood.
grading has been interesting. the projects (for com 300, basic concepts of new media) are really good and really strong. for their final project, however, i want the students to return to building stuff on facebook rather than analyzing stuff on facebook. i'll be curious to hear what students think about this when we reconnect in class on tuesday.
