About Doug

During our individual meetings, many of you expressed an interest in Doug's health. Doug was diagnosed with lung cancer the last week of our class. We decided not to tell you at the time since everyone had much on their minds. I am attaching the link to Doug's blog, which was set up by his best friend, Paul, who recently came to SLC to visit Doug, and includes information about his health. I'm telling you this now because tomorrow night, Friday, there will be an event to honor Doug and help raise money for his medical expenses. It is being held by his friends and colleagues at Westminster in the Honor Building from 5-8...just in case any of you would like to attend. The details are on his blog (at the end of it) I know Doug would love to see you or hear from you or get notes. He is in amazing spirits, funny as usual, and forever aware of all the small and beautiful things around him.

I hope everyone's summer is off to a great beginning.

Astonishing Katie Paterson

This astonishing young Scottish woman explores ideas in an exciting combination of art and science -- coding the "Moolight Sonata", firing it at the moon and discovering that it returns with a few notes missing; a phone number that will connect you to a microphone beneath an Icelandic glacier; a map of all the dead stars in the universe...and so on. Exciting and creatively inspiring!

Is it just me or is Anne being slow with the grade posting routine? I'm getting pretty anxious. We all know the grade is all that really matters, right? 

:) Kidding, Anne.

I promised i would so here it is...

I promised Anne that I would post this thing I do in my journal on the blog. If you have seen the sixth sense, there is that part when he comes home from school and his mum asks him what he did that day and he makes up this amazing perfect day and she said she won the lottery blah blah blah. well basically sometimes i write how i wish my day would have gone.
So one of my entries went like this...
How I wish my day would have gone: I walk into Muller's class and she returns my fourth abstract to me. She rants and raves about how it is the perfect abstract. It was so good that no matter how bad my final essay is, I will still receive an A in her class.

Thats just part of it. If anyone knows Muller, you know that this is the most outlandish dream EVER. haha

hope everyone's having a fun summer!

good stuff

Summer plans??

Hi all! In my meeting with Anne, she said most of us had expressed interest in keeping the blog going, which I think is fabulous. I'm interested to hear about your summer plans, and see some more posts! I know I'll have some pictures to post--at least I darn well better considering I am lucky enough to be spending two months in Europe (mainly Ukraine) this summer. Hope everyone's finals went well!

I wanted to give everyone in a class a huge thank you!!! Everyone had inspirational ideas and projects. I especially want to thank Jeremiah. Because of Jeremiah's work I have decided to do Computer Science for my major. :) I had already been looking at computer science as well as art and other majors. I really liked how Jeremiah showed the process of making his thesaurus and I think it is something I would enjoy. I have looked more thoroughly into Computer Science and I am going for it.

Thanks to all of you again and I hope to see you at the cupcake party!

make a documentary about someone....

Copied and pasted ... for the brillance among you...

Here is the website --

Here is the description --

Some people get to be well known and other people live their lives in obscurity. For this project you get to choose and present someone that you think other people should know about by making a documentary about them. Your documentary can take any form that can be presented on the web — video, sound, images, text or any combination of those things. The hope is that this will eventually become an archive of interesting people that previously were not well known, from all over the world.
