The Nuts and Bolts of Digital Civic Imagination I grew up in Oakland when the Black Panthers were setting up free lunches and breakfasts for me and my classmates in Oakland public schools and carrying guns to defend themselves and their community from the Oakland police. I grew up not trusting the police. It wasn’t an active distrust, but a vague terror that the police might at any moment stop me, arrest me, beat me for no reason at all. I still carry that quiet terror with me 40 years later. Every black man in my life has had experiences of police violence similar to the experiences of Eric Garner, Michael Brown, and Milton Hall up to the point just before the fatal chokehold or gunfire. Curses Programming with Python — Python 2.7.10 documentation Abstract This document describes how to write text-mode programs with Python 2.x, using the curses extension module to control the display. What is curses? The curses library supplies a terminal-independent screen-painting and keyboard-handling facility for text-based terminals; such terminals include VT100s, the Linux console, and the simulated terminal provided by X11 programs such as xterm and rxvt.

Alternate Reality Games Alternate Reality Games, or ARGs, are interactive storytelling devices that make use of the real-world interaction devices and media to add realism in order to help tell a story, which may be altered by 'participant' action. Well-known ARGs are include Halo's I Love Bees , A.I.'s The Beast, The Blair Witch Project, The Potatofools ARG, Team Fortress 2 Update ARGs and Cloverfield's internet campaign. In the Slenderman universe, videomakers use their series' YouTube channels as a way for interaction. These series are referred to as ARGs.

Googling for code solutions can be tricky — here’s how to get started Mad Libs was driving me mad. In order to learn JavaScript earlier this quarter, I set out to build a web application that would mimic a game of Mad Libs and immediately got stuck. The idea was that the game would prompt you to enter a set of random words according to specific parts of speech, and then return to you a story whose blanks had been filled in with those words. Cue a hilarious mix match of sentences. In theory, building it would be simple: have an input form in which the user entered various words. With a button click, my code would hide the form, and show the story template with its blanks populated with the input values.

Sherdog’s Official Mixed Martial Arts Rankings - The Middle Gets Even Thicker Over the last two years, the middleweight division steadily has gotten deeper, more competitive and more compelling. Yoel Romero looks like he is next for champion Michael Bisping, while Luke Rockhold and Ronaldo Souza are still waiting in the wings; the UFC does not need another 185-pound power player right this second. Gegard Mousasi and Robert Whittaker clearly do not care. In recent days, the perennial standout Mousasi and the upstart prospect Whittaker racked up first-round stoppage victories that have them on the move up the divisional rankings, as well as toward UFC title contention. Mousasi, who spent 14 months haunted by his shocking knockout loss to Uriah Hall, exorcised those demons on Nov. 19 in Belfast, Northern Ireland, where he punched out Hall in the first round for his fourth straight win since being upset.

HAF Stacker Case See how the HAF Stacker stacks up At the end of August, Cooler Master announced the HAF Stacker, the world's first stackable mod tower. It's actually a series of individual cases consisting of the HAF 935, HAF 915R, HAF 925, M-ITX HAF 915R, and M-ITX HAF 915F, but with the modular concept Cooler Master is shooting for, you can stack them up in various configurations and create something truly unique.

Langlois Abstract This essay explores the relationship between traditional and digital legend telling through a comparison of hospice staff’s stories of their patients’ deathbed visions (DBV), online and off. DBV narratives are typically those in which witnesses report that a terminally-ill person seems to speak to or otherwise interact with a person or persons, not seen by others in the room, who have come to take him or her to the “other world,” however defined, shortly before his or her own death.
