The influence and discussion of the term “1%” has become almost ubiquitous in today’s society. It has become synonymous with the ultra wealthy and the lavish lifestyles that they live. The influence of public opinion and media coverage has transformed “the 1%” from a factual threshold into a mere colloquial term. Since the beginning of print news, we have been exposed to not just the 1% of wealthiest Americans but rather the 1% of everything. Instead of being a source of jealousy and protest, “the 1%” should be a term for a goal that is attainable for the general public. Continue reading The 1% of Everything→
I chose this image because it is a physical and visual representation of the idea I talking about during this side. It shows the ways
YouTube users can act on videos they have seen and promote their favorite ones. With narration I can talk about how people interact with the website the picture shows the audience what kind of interaction there is. Likes and Shares are a big part of how videos spread out on the YouTube website and become extremely popular and successful.
This next image helps display inter-connectivity final slide of my presentation and I wanted to use it to give a visual representation f a network and how people connect with each other. YouTube links people with common interests together and create a global culture that the image helps show along with the narration.
I enjoyed making this presentation because of the liberty we were given when choosing topics. For most school projects teachers limit students to presenting topics and ideas that they are not interested in and this takes away from some of the presentation. However, for this project I was able to choose a topic that highly interests me and is something that I can relate to. I chose to focus on YouTube because it is a website I use every day and I am extremely fascinated with YouTube culture, specifically film making and gaming. My argument developed around the fact that I wanted to show people how this website that I use is a great medium for connectivity and sharing ideas. The images came from the script. I pictured myself having a conversation with someone on how YouTube was such a great website and chose images based on what I was saying. For me it was important for none of the images to be ambiguous and that each should relate directly with what I was saying.
While preparing for my presentation I mostly just read my talking point out loud and made sure that I had enough words to fill each 20 second period. Instead of just having one long script and hoping that the words would line themselves up with the images I chose to divide them up into small section of about equal length so that each slide had its own unique narration. I didn’t practice with an audience but while reading the presentation to myself out loud I made small changes to the script and even changed some of the pictures when I thought the meaning wouldn’t be evident from my script.
