When I followed the link from this tweet from Alec Corous Dr. Alec Couros https://twitter.com/courosa/status/720975365460647936 I knew I had to make it into a DS106 Daily Create. Sure it was from 2008, and I am not sure if Ze Frank did or is still doing the book, but that's now what ...

I don;t have much time or energy to do a big writeup, but seeing a DS106 Daily Create on remixing book covers, is hard to pass (well I knew about it since I put in the site, but that was a while again). I just scrolled through a long list of ...

Like many folks, I was interested in comic guru Nick Sousanis's call for participation in a week of Grids and Gestures Quickly, have a look at your ceiling tiles or other grid-ish things around you. If you then imagine putting these features to music, you might have regular long notes ...

Like a classic MOOC dropout artist, I've fallen so far off of my #western106 horse I can't even see the dust any more. I had grand hopes of running a DS106 in a genre of Western films/stories. I was doing trailers back in October for a planned online class to teaching ...

Darn you Daily Create sending me down a creative rabbits hole. Thanks. And I'm responsible for today's challenge https://twitter.com/ds106dc/status/718375113767456769 I look for patterns in numbers, and while loading future Daily Creates I noticed today's date is (for US formats Month/Day/Year is 4/8/16 -get it? month x 2 = day and day x 2 = ...
