Yes, it’s that time again! Well, we had our first big presentation to the class, which went ok. I get nervous and all giddy before presenting, so I apologize for all the laughter/bad jokes I probably told. Also, it was a bummer that we weren’t able to show video, but Caitlin came to the rescue earlier that morning and figured out our problems we were having. BIG NEWS: BREAKING NEWS: THIS JUST IN–I AM CURRENTLY HALF WAY THROUGH TRANSCRIPTION! YAY! It’s a big deal to me because I want to finish before Spring Break is here, so I have been spending a lot of time with the audio (so much so that I can almost finish Farmer’s sentences). I just am really glad that Farmer is so easy to listen to, takes long pauses, tells the most entertaining stuff, and isn’t afraid to laugh. It makes it much easier than listening to someone drone on and on about a subject you care nothing about.
Other than the happy transcription news, we have been having trouble after trouble with the video. First, four lectures are not digitized. Second, we have found funds to digitize, but the timeline may not be immediate future. Third, the videos we do have…well the quality is horrendous and the audio in some isn’t linked. Fourth, hosting! so many problems with that. But I think we’re cautiously optimistic that the videos will be digitized in time for us to do what we need to with them and put them online. Also, I really enjoyed seeing/hearing about everyone’s group progress! Everyone seems to be doing really well, which is awesome!
