Facebook is the new terrorist tool

Day three of the datasprint is going good. It is actually nice to be back at school again. Specially since I am hanging with these cool guys, Serkan, Sander and Mitch. Plus Michael and Jennifer of course (who did not attend the awesome group picture I wanted to take).

Anyways, as you can see we are all very engaged. The topic of the assignment we are working on is Dutch Jihad Facebook groups, which we are doing a social network study of to reveal how social media is used to recrute and spread information within real life and online networks.  Interesting! Wish us luck!

Cheers, May.

Solo-celebration with Oreo-cookies and milk in a beer-glass!

Hola!

Today Ariadna, Annika and I finally finished and handed in or new media research methods paper about the history of web and the history of the web page http://www.annefrank.com. Woop, woop! Hurray!

Image

So after the last stressful days, with reading, writing and alnighters, I am going to peace out and chill down and enjoy the rest of this lovely friday on the couch with Oreo-cookies and milk.

ImageImage

In other words, the beer is replaced by milk today. Why? Because I tend to meet very strange people and make weird friends when I go out, like this guy, that I met on Sams birthday. He is nice and all but….yeah, you know.

Image

But I hope the rest of my lovely amsterdam friends and norwegian party-lions have a awesome night and a great weekend!

Cheers, May!

I think its gonna be an alnighter…

Why do I never learn?! I just finished my media theory assignment for tomorrow about “new urbanism” and “assmeblage theory” – hurray! But now I have to catch up with the group assignment for friday in the New media research methods course. Puh! Student life is´nt all about beer and fun, in my case mostly about reading and learning, although I am very good at beers and fun as well. Haha. Oh well, gotta start reading about “the website as archived object”. Interesting, but hard to cope with right now since my mind is all on the “assemblage” and “new urbanism´”. Sooo, wish me luck!

Over and out. Cheers, Maypaj. 

Listening to old, good music after being kicked out of the UvA yesterday. LOL.

Shit. Just got up. Waaaay to late and exhausted after the assignment marathon yesterday. But we made it!

We worked so late that we got kicked out of UvA yesterday. Haha. Here is the homeless gang!

I just started listening ti Kim Hiorthøy again. Haven´t heard this music in years, so decided to share  a song with you. Enjoy!

Over and out. Cheers, Maypaj.

So now we are being super productive!ImageImageBut we had to have a little “cat-break” and pet the amazing cat that lives here. It is so cute and fluffy and cool! ❤ImageOh well, back to work!

Over and out. Cheers, Maypaj.

“Cyber-bullying” and “digital hangovers”

Hey again!

Right now I am working on my group assignment for monday. The topic of our assignment is “digital hangovers” and solutions and ways to cover your tracks once you have embarrassing content of yourself online. My task, or one of my many tasks, is to write about cyber-bullying in addition to digital hangovers and show similarities and differences. It´s really interesting!

You should check out our blog on monday when it´s finished. The address is http://digitalhangovers.wordpress.com. Right now there is not much on it, but from next week you can get help with your “digital hangover”, if you have one. Pretty cool and genius, hah?

Anyways, gotta get back to work.

ImageOver and out. Cheers, Maypaj.
