Networking in Sweden | Study in Sweden: the student blog This is a note to myself as much it is a blogpost for you. These are somethings that I have learned in the last year in Sweden regarding to networking and finding a job. The most important thing, I believe, is to develop a networking mindset. It was really hard for me to look at people as nodes in a network and ask for help. It was super awkward in the starting and I felt it was so odd. Over the year things started to change as I realized that I have things to offer as well. I have developed a sort of a routine that helps me out in such mingles and here it goes: Have clear objectives: Far too often I would come back home unhappy with the outcome of a mingle. Prepare a pitch: Once you start thinking of yourself as a resource or a service to company, its important to be able to summarize what exactly you offer in less than a minute. Identify the big fish and do your homework: Everyone has different interests and usually every mingle has some really celebs of the business world. Raghuraman

Journal — Daniel Fallman Mindlessly checking for an update the first thing you do when the user opens up the application is just bad, thoughtless design. You open an application because you want to do something with it, right now. There are so many more ways in which an update could be done in a nicer, more humane way that doesn't get in the way of the user's intent. A simple solution would be to gather the information and download the update in the background. Then just hold off the notification until the user either decides to quit the application or becomes idle. Or update it automatically in the background. If you look closely at the picture above, you'll see that VLC comes with a solution to this which isn't without finesse. Yet, there are two problems with this approach. So when it comes to software updates, I'm leaning more and more towards update-as-you-quit as the more humane approach, with minor, bug fix updates automatically installed in the background.

Journal of Interactive Media in Education The Journal of Interactive Media in Education (JIME) invites contributions for a Special Issue that expands on the trends explored in the successful 'Bristol Ideas in Mobile Learning Symposium' (see which took place March 6-7, 2014.

The Design Process: How Do You Get Started? Sometimes the toughest part of a new project is actually getting started. In fact, just this small step can be a process in itself. As designers, we all have different processes and habits, but there are a few common things that everyone can do to make getting started that much easier (and hopefully result in more efficient use of time, and a better end result). Understand Your Project The first step is to know what you are designing and who you are designing it for. But, your questions shouldn’t stop there… How should this design project influence an audience? How much time do you have to complete the project from start to finish? Determine associated costs as well. Do a Little Research Even if you think you have a good idea about what your project entails, do some more research. Then look at the market that this project is aimed at. Tools to Gather Once you have a good idea of what the design project is, it’s a good idea to gather up all the tools you will need to proceed.

Created by a group of interior architecture students from the Estonian Academy of Arts, Unplugged Kingsize Megaphones is installed in a densely forested site in the Pähni Nature Centre, near the Latvian border. Over 50 per cent of the country is covered by forest – previous woodland projects there include a winding elevated pathway by Tetsuo Kondo Architects and a faceted woodland cabin by Jaanus Orgusaar. The structures were built off-site by the students in Estonia's Medieval capital Tallinn, before being transported to the site. The megaphones were then positioned around a small clearing, creating a "bandstand" for the sounds produced within the forest. Measuring three metres in diameter at their widest point, each structure is large enough to create a lounging spot for several people. Project credits:

ESPACIOS DE RESONANCIA – Josep Cerdà | ./mediateletipos))) Josep Cerdà Espacios de Resonancia, Proyectos de Escultura Ambiental para captar el sonido del mar. Resonancia-1“Espacios de Resonancia” es un trabajo que se enmarca dentro de las propuestas que Josep Cerdà ha desarrollado definiendo el concepto de Escultura Ambiental. La finalidad de la Escultura Ambiental es remarcar aquello que no vemos y únicamente podemos percibir a través de los sentidos. Las obras interpretan una naturaleza en que lo esencial no son las formas sino las fuerzas, la densidad, la intensidad, la vibración, la constante repetición y transformación. Se trata de proyectos de escultura ambiental en que se quiere poner en evidencia el lenguaje de la naturaleza, creando espacios de contemplación frente al mar con diferentes estados de vibración y resonancia. Esta exposición propone un arte de intercambio y trata una idea poética que implica cuerpo y mente.
