Reading the section on “Geeking Out” in “Living with New Media,” I was thinking of the stereotypes that accompany the word, “geek.” Doing a quick Google Image Search for “geek” led me here (click if you’re up for a laugh). Anyway, I was getting a good number of images of people with giant glasses, a… Continue reading Redefining the Geek
Doing these blog posts that are up for public searches and views made me think about something I often struggle with: Copyright. I wanted to just use and upload images that I find on Google Image, but I started thinking about how do I cite my resources? How do I show where I got the… Continue reading Sidenote: Let’s Mess Around

I just have my Twitter account (@dorakio) feed straight into it. It also works the other way where you can feed various social networks with posts you create on RebelMouse… Continue reading My #RebelMouse page!
