A Lesson in Dignity: Chelsea Manning

Recently, I had the opportunity to take a deep dive into a person I believe has dignity thanks to a class called Disabilities And Dignity at Stockton University, and I used that opportunity to try to truly understand Chelsea Manning, one of the most controversial people in modern America. Not only did this research project…

Collaboration and Trust

Since I am beginning to commentate with a partner for the first time thanks to the Rose Cup, I figure it’s a good time to look at some advice on working together when weaving the narrative. Therefore, this week I found an article called Trusting Your Co-Caster on Broadcast.gg, and it’s great. I’ve talked before…

Starting Out

One of the main resources for those who would like to get started in eSports production is Broadcast.gg, a group of semiprofessional broadcasters dedicated to help amateurs get their feet off the ground in an understandably unexplored field. I’ve already taken a look at many of their resources and even chatted with the founders when…

An Interview with David “GoDz” Parker

This past Saturday, I interviewed David “GoDz” Parker, a Dota 2 Caster and the founder of Beyond the Summit, an eSports company with a huge focus on keeping the authenticity of a community tournament while elevating the production quality to a professional level.

WARNING: Your One Day Free Trial Of Being A Professional Ends TODAY!

I’m not proud to admit it, but since the beginning of the year, I’ve been skeptical of Classroom Redesign. It had merits, sure, but I mostly thought it would be akin to havings snacks at club meetings; people only come when they’re hungry. However, after a full workday at FLUX Space, I’m happy to say…

Rounding the Quarter

InNOVAtion Lab has grown so much as a class and community, and I’m sure we all have our two cents to get in about that growth. For me, I was most surprised about how fast everyone actually got integrated into our group! It took me a whole year to get used to the series of…

Laying the Groundwork

InNOVAtion Lab is a class all about design thinking and how to apply it to our lives, and while we’ve done plenty of thinking, the time of action is rapidly approaching. This is not to say, of course, that our period to develop ideas individually and as a community was wasted. In fact, from my…

Let’s Eat: Jotting Down Some Notes

Hello everybody! I’m back, despite the school’s attempts to black my blog out. Regardless, Let’s Eat is coming along nicely, albeit not in the way I originally intended. At this point in time, I had expected to have the design of the book entirely worked out, the recipes being added in later. Instead, I got…
