  1. Reading 01 Interpretations

    July 31, 2013 by kimberlyteoh

    This is really late but I’m gonna go ahead and post anyway.

    Last week, Adrian wrote and posted a very metaphorical reading. I have to admit that I literally imagined this while I was reading it.

    I have a simple mind

    Obviously, I’m sure he didn’t mean to produce a mental image such as this when he wrote it so I gave it a bit more thought.

    Instead of a boat, I thought of a mouse cursor. I replaced the ocean with a cloud and put in network resources such as videos, blogs, audio files, etc. which are the ideas that other people have contributed to the cloud. None of these are connected to each other but you can certainly ‘access’ them when you touch them.

    Basically, the ocean/cloud is a gateway to a world that has an endless amount of ideas that other people have put in. Although Adrian only described and mentioned one boat, who says that there can’t be more boats? Anyone can be in it or access it. I believe that’s what network media is.

  2. Understanding Network Media

    July 31, 2013 by kimberlyteoh

    I like to fully understand anything that I am involved with. Not only does it make it easier to talk about them, but it also makes it more easier to find/work with the relevant material.

    So, first things first, what is Network Media?

    I know what media is. I know what a network is. But what IS Network Media, exactly?
    By definition, it is, and I quote from Wikipedia, “media mainly used in computer networks such as the Internet.” Simple enough. But I need more detail.
    This video by AMXtalk certainly helps with that.

    So basically, from what I understand, anything that can be shared and accessed via a network is basically a network resource. For example, videos, photos, powerpoints, MP3s, PDF files, and this blog. I guess the reason why blogging is involved with this program is because of how relevant it is which is great because I find blogging fun and much easier than writing in books. I mean, have you seen my handwriting? Goodness.

    Moving on, anything that can be used to share and access content is also a network resource. So this PC that I’m using with all those crazy cables attached is also a network resource. Interesting. Other examples to include are TVs, those big screens in classes and lecture rooms + all those devices to attach to those big screens and speakers.

    So to sum up, using all those network resources to share content with other people is network media.

    Can’t really say I have fully understood it yet, but I suppose I will in the coming months while I’m in this program.
