Day 11: April 29, 2008
He barfed during the night. Twice. Both times he had to make it known that he was going to barf by heaving quite loudly prior to barfage (I realize that's not a word). This gave me enough time to be startled awake and fling him off the bed. Anyway, if he had barfed at, say, 11pm and then at 11:30pm, I'd be just fine.
He barfed at 2:45am, and again at 4:45am. If he weren't so cute, I'd probably be eating shih-tzu casserole tonight. Especially since there'd be no more barf to worry about.
There's more people here than I expected, especially given Grand Theft Auto IV was released today. Color me surprised.
Today we start with an audio clip about the digital divide in India. More of a little study along the lines of oh-my-goodness-some-people-don't-know-what-a-computer-is, than anything else, but still an interesting piece.
Globalization and Narrowing of the Digital Divide - the title for today's PowerPoint presentation. This will be a good discussion class, I can tell. We've spent so much time talking about media in all forms, but not about places withOUT. The usual suspects at work, economic ramifications, political ramifications etc etc blah blah.
We're talking about how to bridge the digital divide in Africa. We've spent about half an hour on one slide which proves (probably) how useful a good slide is.
Wow, just a few slides sparks such discussion, though as is usual, there's a small group of people who tend to want to answer, and do so with aplomb. The rest of the students are a more passive bunch, which is typical.
Class is getting done a little early today because there are class-feedback sheets to hand out. Hah! Isn't this blog a class-feedback blog?
