From the inner-workings of this website to the inner-workings of my mind.
As it's getting down to the 11th hour, technology is really the last barrier to finishing this project. As I was working on editing my interviews into podcasts and videos, I ran into technical issue after technical issue. To make the podcasts, I used Adobe Premiere, which was probably a mistake given that I wasn't familiar with the program. When I went to export my second interview segment, I got an MP3 that only had one track for some reason, so entire sections of the audio were silent. This was no good. I had to go back and trouble shoot and it took me hours. With the affordances these machines give us there are also incredible constraints—ironically, technology is often more inconvenient than it is convenient. Boy, do I miss the analog days right now. To have been able to turn this project in as a printed essay. But then, it wouldn't be a multimodal project, now would it?
