In this class, I learned about Flickr, including how to upload and tag sets. (At the top of the page: Yours truly.)
Mass transit has long been an interest of mine. In fact, until my term ended in December, I was chair of the SamTrans Citizen’s Advisory Committee. I’ve long tried to bridge a gap between riders and providers and think quick surveys such as this are needed to provide critical information.
The issue of transit itself is critical to San Francisco State University, with the need for improvement cited as a critical issue in SFSU’s Master Plan. Like a commentator on my post, I was surprised at the number of students who simply said, “I have a car, why would I take a bus?” I was happy to broach the issue with the San Francisco Beat community.
I was also happy to finally learn GarageBand, which has literally been on my to-do list for years. I think the skills I learned on this assignment will come in handy in the future.
Other highlights of this class include:
Learning to post Google charts online, such as this one including data from the Pew Internet Research Center. This chart shows the percentage of Internet users and adults as a whole, who have engaged in a variety of online health interactions.
