What I liked… (Mostly what I didn’t) about Networks

I think what I really enjoyed about this course was learning the history behind virtual and online networks…

I wasn’t so keen on the Hypertext theories and double loop learning..

I guess to sum everything up I’m more of  left brain learner, I’d  rather learn substantial facts than transparent theories on a subject.

my apologies for being soooo sceptical.. but that’s what I do

 

And, now i get to draw a graph about it…

networks… the theory that everything is related some way or another in the universe.

Not just through digital computer networks, but through communication. Not just human to human communication but environmental communication. The unspoken way in which we relate to different elements of the world. Cross species communication explores this theory well. Feeding a wild animal can gain it’s trust.. We can tell the animal we are trust worthy , but they won’t understand us. BUT they do understand the offering of food a physical network which entices the animal to trust you.

Personally, I theorise it as the way that I could probably successfully determine my six degrees form Kevin Bacon.

Yes, I don’t know Kevin Bacon and I will probably never will but I could probably determine that someone I have met, has met someone he has six times fold. Voila, in theory I have loosely networked with Kevin Bacon. We haven’t physically communicated and networked but the tie lines are established.

I’m going to say my first degree is Karl Stefanovic… maybe you can work out the rest..

how could you….

House of Cards, how could you finish on a cliff hanger..

*shakes fist at the sky*

This is why I don’t get caught up in TV phenomenons like Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones..

Because they take over your life, all you want is the new episode to be released.. your next hit.. until the season series ends and you have continual withdrawal for the next six months.

I also hate it when decent shows like continue to run due to success, even though their plot lines become so ridiculous that they don’t even make sense anymore… do I even need to mention the debacle that was LOST, do I?!?

Also, How I Met Your Mother…. Seriously Ted how much information do you need to share with your kids about ALL your ex-girlfriends before you tell them how you and your wife met…. only nine seasons worth.

 

American Television.. you frustrate me.
