This week, we focused on thinking about the big project, and diving into a bit more programming.
One thing that stood out to me this week we read after class on Monday. I found the article “The Making of a Youtube Radical” really interesting because it applied algorithms (that we learned about last week) and applied them to an in-depth analysis.
On Wednesday in class, we worked more on looking at programming, algorithms, and personal data stored in Google accounts.
On Friday, we talked more about the big project and analyzed projects that could give us inspiration. The project that really stood out to me was “Spent”. This project drew attention to poverty in the U.S., and how difficult (yet common) it is to live paycheck to paycheck. I thought this project was really interesting because of the simulation style of it, and the cleanness of the appearance.
