Inspired: If You Need Us, We’re on the Radio

Grant Potter's ds106 bumperinspired by The Wire is not only awesome, it also captures a brilliant moment when you get a sense how confined Bodie Broadus's world is. He thinks the radio is going out, but the fact is they're just leaving Baltimore---something he's never done before---that become for some awesome character development without much overhead. The Wire at its very best.

#dc106 Reclaim Shoutout

In episode 106 of Digital Campus (a.k.a dc106-coincidence? I think not) the director of the Roy Rosensweig Center for History and New Media, Stephen Robertson, gives a shout out to Reclaim Hosting suggesting how "absurdly easy" it is for students and faculty to setup and manage their own applications on their own domains.

Interview with The Wire Sound Editor Jen Ralston (@someotherjen) for #wire106 #ds106

This is the interview Paul Bond and I had with sound editor Jen Ralston about her work on The Wire and more. She has a series of brilliant insights, and does a few close readings of scenes from season 1. It's an excellent resource for thinking more deeply about sound, which is appropriate given we will be introducing sound in this week.
