Classes and Activities

Yesterday I had my first "real" class, i.e. a class which is lecture based and visited by students from various programs. The class is called "Social Web: Content, Communities and Context" and analyses how social online communities function, what works and what fails in these environments and the social implications of spending part of ones live online. One of the homework assignments will be playing World of Warcraft ;).

Because all day studying and learning leads to an unbalanced live, I decided to join the Western African Dance class. The session lasted 75 minutes and was a lot of fun, very exhausting and extremely painful for the feet (I had huge blisters afterwards), but after a couple of times my feet will surely get used to this torture ^^.

This morning my final new class started. "The Law of Computer Technology" looks at the US judicial system and analyzes computer related topics such as copyright infringement, patents and much more. Definitely a more "serious" class, but certainly very interesting.

That's it for the moment. Gotta go home and check if the gas (for cooking) is finally running...

  • I doubt it. Unless this feat is possible within 10 days, without missing any classes ;).
