another update

well, i'm almost done. i know you're all super busy, but i'd really appreciate any more feedback.

here's the main page. it looks a little screwy in firefox, but it looks normal in safari. i'll have to figure that out.

here are the things i have left to do. this is as much for me as for you.

put the image citation information on the sources page.

proofread (make sure all the pages are named and all the links go to the right places and check for typos etc.).

another update


thanks a ton for your comments. they were very helpful, and i've enacted most of them (although not on all the pages).

here's a page that's pretty close to how i want all of them to look:

i really like how the quotation mark looks. i'm going to use three different kinds of quotation marks and three different fonts, for the dryden ovid (linked above) and the criticism and the theory.

project update

ok here's a link:

i fixed the images problem, i think.

there are still things i

stephanie's project


wow. stephanie, you have a lot to teach me about formatting. how did you do all that? especially your front page - that's amazing. also, i mentioned in my post to sam that i shared his problem of having an ugly block of text at the top of the page - how did you make yours centered and big like that?

this is perversely interesting


the bombshell.

do we really think that this is lori drew? would she really close with "here i am, internet. come get me."?? everything about the blog seems designed to provoke maximum outrage - and maximum readership. how perverted is it for someone to use this as a springboard to her fifteen minutes? how perverted is it that i could even consider that?

sam's project


as i've said before, i really like all the content up there (that was also on the wiki). i also like the skeleton you've put in place for the rest of it. where do you think the map will fit in? how present will it be? one extreme: it's on every page, along with a dot that tells you where you are. the other extreme: it's on only one page, and although it links out to all the pages, it's hard to get to. i imagine getting the map up there in the first place must be tough.

becca's project


well, i like it a lot. it's hard to go wrong with the little prince.

i like that that picture is on every page also. i think i told you that when i was talking to you in person.

shift space


shift space is really, really cool. at least, it has the potential to be really, really cool. there don't seem to be a whole lot of users yet, and most of the comments aren't all that interesting, but it's on its way. the image swap is a crazy feature. definitely watch the video posted there. and get an account for yourself. maybe i'll see you on the other side.

the wiki


i know we're all busy with our final projects, but we should definitely not forget about the wiki. we have a lot of good content i think. who put up the andrew marvell poem? i love that poem. i was talking to devin, and he was saying that we need to focus on making the pages link between each other more. right now, it's really easy to get stuck on a page, with no way to get anywhere else. and a lot of the pages, even the really long ones, have only one or two hyperlinks.

we feel fine?

i just realized that you can view emotions by city and that they have quite a few from claremont. soon after that, i realized that you can follow an entry to the blog whence it came. so you have access to most blogs written by people in claremont (i can't imagine that our blogs contribute). it's a little odd. it's refreshing to read sentiments rarely expressed IRL here, but it also feels creepy to think that i could know the people writing. i actually did stumble on a blog written by someone i sort of know who graduated last year. i stopped browsing after that.
