My name is Linh Pham and I'm a 2nd year MFADT student from Southern California. I did my undergrad at Cal State Long Beach where I majored in Graphic Design and Marketing. My work experience includes working as a freelance graphic/web designer and lately I've been doing some game design stuff. I'm currently interested in interactive design that deal with social networks and public spaces.
I am interested in this class because of its hands on approach and dealing with wireless technology. I've been pretty much avoiding any type of physical computing or building of anything so this is my way of easing myself into this area. I'm looking forward to what we'll be learning and making in this class. I don't want to dissect my toy tomorrow. It is cute and I want to keep it :)
My favorite childhood toys included:
- cabbage patch kids
(I seriously remember them being a lot cuter!)
(I think I had about 12 of them)
- teddy ruxpin
(I was so pissed off when my mom sent this somewhere and it got lost in the mail along with my cabbage patch kid doll)
