Media, Media, Media!

Hey everyone,

Here's a little update on what I've been up to lately...

First, I'll just say that if you have the chance to take Global Communications with Prof. Hyde, do it. I can't even begin to describe how great it is. Yes, it's a lot of work, but learning about the media in the entire world is pretty amazing. And plus, now I can even say that I can name every country in the world and where they are on a map.

So, I'm super excited about the project we're working on right media mapping. Basically, we were all assigned a country (I got Croatia) and we're designing a research-based website (yes, from scratch) with information about the media culture within that country. Even though I'm in Bergeron some nights until 2am or later, it's really cool to see the progress in the website. Here are a few pictures of some of the things I've worked on so far...

The very beginning...just a header!
Nav bar done

Home page
One of MANY pages on the site...
this one is for facts on the most common
types of media/technology used in Croatia!

And I'm pretty sure I remember hearing that these will go live online when we're finished, I can't wait!

Also, just wanted to throw in a shout-out to the awesome members of St. Michael's Rescue for letting me ride along/observe a call last night for a multimedia project. Here are a few shots from the night...

Super abstract/blurry but I like it
