Theme adjusments and apology

Hi guys. Here is my theme adjustments. I turned off many things and changed fonts and colors. I also have to apologize to you all, because I didn’t finish my great wide open presentation for today. I picked such a broad topic that in the end I wasn’t able to organize all the data I found. So sorry, I will make it up to you.

Hi guys. Here is one good reference for wordpress. This site redesigns existing themes and they charge it, but I think it is a good place to see what can be done with free themes and knowledge of css. Enjoy!

Hi Everyone,
Here’s the link to my presentation slides.

Also, I’m going to talk about two different TED talks, which you should check out just because it’s ridiculously interesting, so here are those links: Charles Leadbeater and Johnny Lee

And lastly, I’m hopefully going to attach the pdf of my presentation here as well… Open Source Presentation

See you all tomorrow!

Great, Wide, Open (brief)

Starting next week we are starting a series of presentations under the title “Great Wide Open” in which you guys will be presenting to the class a specific topic involving open source, it can be an interesting OS project, a discussion around OS issues, a technology you wish were open but isn’t, and why should it be… issues of open culture, copyright laws or how does all this tie back to design? Each such presentation will take 15 mins + 5 mins for Q&A. These presentations will be obviously accompanied by a post on our blog, which will include the key ideas, some links and the opportunity for all of us to continue the discussion after class in the comments column.

If you’re going to use slides, post them on Slideshare.com and embed them on your post. (recommended)
