Jeffrey Is Looking For …

Posted by emac3326 on September 4, 2006

Jeffrey Miranda is looking for a classmate(s) interested in making podcast animation. I wasn’t sure if he meant a podcast on animations, or making animations for not a podcast but a videocast. Anyway, it’s getting time that we mix and mingle, which we will do some this week. Please contact Jeffrey if interested.

Jeffrey’s Links

Posted by emac3326 on September 4, 2006

Jeffrey Miranda sent me a note about adding a blog to the class blogroll. It’s Jeffrey Miranda’s Sketch Blog. Dummy me, I thought he wanted to replace the first blog with this one, when what he wanted was to include this blog on the list. Duh.

But this brings up one thing to note: Jeffrey is obviously working on a strategy between his blogs, yet he doesn’t link between them or explain anywhere what the differences are and his purpose for doing so. At a minimum, I’d put a link to your sketch blog on Panoch’s Gallery, and likewise: a link for Panoch’s Gallery on Panoch’s Sketches.

Discovering the Power of Podcasting.

Posted by emac3326 on August 31, 2006

Jeffrey wrote that after reading some of the book Podcast Solutions he’s beginning to see the power of podcasting and videocasting. I remember such an ah-ha moment, even before there was podcasting, per se, when I stumbled on lectures provided by a site called IT Conversations. What amazed me was that I was listening to an expert in his field I probably would never meet, at a conference I doubt I would ever go to much less pay for, and yet I felt I had a one-on-one conversation with him. He was teaching me what he knew, or about some trend, and I never left my car. It was a profound experience.

From Jeffrey:

As I began reading Podcast Solutions I began to understand this world of podcasting. I now subscribe to Ask A Ninja, which I found to be hillarious and random. Comedy Central: Stand-Up (Video) and NPR: Shuffle are other podcast that I subscribe to. Usually I’m very busy and many things don’t capture my attention for a long time. For instance, I really don’t finish watching the news or reading the paper. I feel I’m chasing and trying to keep up to date. But with podcast now I feel its there for me, waiting whenever I want to, very convinient.

Miranda Blog and How and I Am Going to Monitor

Posted by emac3326 on August 28, 2006

Jeffrey Miranda’s blog is located at panoch.blogspot.com. He, as well as others, have been doing what I need you to do: find a free blog host, create a blog, and then play with it, getting familiar with the tools.

Jeffrey raised a good point in his email to me: How am I going to monitor student blogs? As each blog comes in, I make note of it here, in the class blog, and add the link to the blog roll to the right. I will use the blogroll to visit sites at least once a week, looking at activity. Ideally, I’d like all of you to include RSS feeds on your sites — we can talk about this in class — and I can create a group RSS feed so I can see new posts as they come in. Suffice to say, I want to see at least two or three postings a week.

Personal Synopsis: Miranda

Posted by emac3326 on August 22, 2006

Jeffrey Miranda

The name is Jeffrey Miranda, 25 yrs, from El Paso Tx.  I graduated
from The University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) with a BA in Drawing
with a minor in Biology.

As an undergrad I became fascinated with the principle structure and
function.  And with that idea I was able to combine both Art and
Biology.  My Senior thesis was about the 3D reconstruction of cell’s
organ, Golgi Apparatus.  The result was a actual plastic prototype of
the structure.

I later I studied Medical Illustration at the Southwestern Medical
Center in Dallas.  There I produced numerous drawing studies of
cadaver specimens.  As time went on I started noticing the field
didn’t give room for creativity and I simply I saw myself going nowhere.

My time as a Medical Illustration opened new realms I wanted to
explore.  I became interested in conceptual design, like medical
instrumentation design, weaponry design, and fluid motion in straws.
I began to produce political heavy humor artwork. Email me if you
want to see some artwork…jeffmiranda@mac.com!
