Also, if you want the pages to feel realistic, make sure you consider that in facebook, basically all of your information is an active link. You don't use facebook so I'm not sure whether you know this, but whenever someone updates their profile it says what they updated on theirmini feed. As in "Becca updated her About Me section." Are you going to be using this when you make the subtle and not so subtle changes? Or are they even more subtle than that?</p> http://machines.kfitz.info/168-2007/node/125#comments apeshit term project Wed, 12 Dec 2007 20:43:38 +0000 stumpy 125 at http://machines.kfitz.info/168-2007 HELP ME PLEASE http://machines.kfitz.info/168-2007/node/124 <p>So I'm finishing my project right now (or at least trying to) and I'm sort of stuck. Like I said in class, I have 100 or so pages and not enough post-Little-Prince published works to post next to my entries. I know some of you suggested I write my own content, but I'm hesitant to do that. I started to write some, but it's sort of against my whole project idea, which is that this website is the entire intertextual work of The Little Prince. I guess I feel like my personal additions seem out of place.</p> <p><a href="http://machines.kfitz.info/168-2007/node/124">read more</a></p> http://machines.kfitz.info/168-2007/node/124#comments apeshit term project Wed, 12 Dec 2007 05:14:51 +0000 stumpy 124 at http://machines.kfitz.info/168-2007 my project http://machines.kfitz.info/168-2007/node/123 <p>This is the starting page I showed you guys in class for my project:</p> <p><a href="http://pages.pomona.edu/~smt02005/writing_machines/galileo.html" title="http://pages.pomona.edu/~smt02005/writing_machines/galileo.html">http://pages.pomona.edu/~smt02005/writing_machines/galileo.html</a></p> <p> Do you think it would be better to keep it like this, and have the possibility of clicking five different links that take you to different examples of the types of pages I have, or just have one link that leads you into the first card in my "version" of the story? Actually, yeah, I think I'm going to change it to the second option... I don't want to reveal my Chaos and Order pages right off the bat. Do you guys have any other suggestions? thanks!</p> http://machines.kfitz.info/168-2007/node/123#comments term project Tue, 11 Dec 2007 20:33:28 +0000 jughead 123 at http://machines.kfitz.info/168-2007 Kindle content perchance http://machines.kfitz.info/168-2007/node/122 <p>J.M. Coetzee's new <a href=http://www.slate.com/id/2179374/pagenum/all/#page_start> book </a> is weird. It's a split screen. Each page has 3 sections that they're calling streams. The top stream is essays, the middle a diary from an authoroid, and the bottom a monologue from a character.
