2019 update

Leave a comment

This fall I continued to work on the Critical Code Studies book (to be published with MIT Press) and launched a few new projects. A new version of Salt Immortal Sea was featured in the gallery of the ELO 2018 conference in Montreal. The kids and I enjoyed sharing Mrs. Wobbles, episode 4 Spy E.Y.E. at IndieCade. I also presented on teaching Fake News at the 4Cs conference with Talan Memmott (my co-teacher at UAC), Robert Emmons, and Dennis Jerz. You can see the syllabus for my Fake News course with exercises here. The kids and I are working on the next Mrs. Wobbles story (my daughter’s “The Land Down Under”) and the Hallmark Holiday Movie generator bot.
