processingReference update

So for my final project I decided to go along with my original idea to take the references from the processing.org page and to tweet them to my twitter account. The twitter bot works completely and i have fixed the text file with all the references and all of the urls associated with it. Every reference on that processing 2 page will eventually be tweeted to the twitter account. I chose to tweet Processing references due to the fact that Processing will always be my favorite language. Also i know when i was learning it that  the processing page was my homepage to all of my computers. So everything is working the way i want it to be working. I had a few problems figuring out how to implementing the url into my JavaScript i could of coded it in a few ways but the easiest way was to put all the references in a text file and have it randomly choose a word. Screen Shot 2015-05-07 at 3.13.36 PM

the function Sentences(text){

is where i concentrated the most on. The perfect way to tweet the post in the order i wanted first the word and then the url. below is a screen shot of order how it posts on twitter.

to do this i have the text file with hundred and hundred of references. And to out put the correct form i wanted i split each string with -# at the end.

So the program if you look above line 54 listSentences= text.split(‘-#”); is the line that does all of this correctly.Screen Shot 2015-05-07 at 3.16.11 PM

But i am experiencing problems putting it up on the server where it can run automatically and update on it own randomly every six to 12 hours as the code is implemented. Screen Shot 2015-05-07 at 3.26.07 PM

I downloaded all of the applications and most of the toolbelts github and heroku and when i went into the command line it didnt allow me to due to the fact that it wasnt able to install the certain toolbelt i needed

this is what popped up when i did it  i this this a few times but i guess it was acting weird and just did not like me at that moment. I did it again a few days later and i got it to work !!!!!!!!! woohooo i got it up and running on the heroku Server.

 

Assignment 1 part 2

So for this experiment I interviewed my sister, Manda, on what digital communications does she use and like and she interested in creating a personal fashion blog that will hopefully one day make her money. But in order for her to have nice photos she needs to get all dolled up. She’s been saying it everyday she needs to find a good place to blow dry her hair so she can take photos for the blog. Perfect situation. So I created a IFTTT recipe for her when a new craigslist post comes out for a blow drying service around our Yonkers, NY location it will tweet “Helping @mandalukic beautify herself for her blog pictures http://ift.tt/1GracDU”  

below are screenshots of the recipe and the twitter account its linked to:Screen Shot 2015-04-27 at 9.46.56 PM

The interview went like this:

Q: What types of digital devices do you use and with do you like the most?

A: “ I use digital media all the time, everyday. Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, Twitter, and Pinterest. My favorite is Instagram. I want my page to go viral and to be successful in affiliate marketing

Q: Which is your least favorite?

A: Um, I’m still fairly new to tumblr and twitter so I do not use those quiet as often as facebook and instagram.”

Q: You say you want to start a blog and have all accounts of yours link to the blog. Any difficulties with these digital means that allowed you to link the blog and the accounts together. What is your struggle with these forms of media.

A: Well yes I do want to create a blog but the biggest problem I am having at the moment is having no time to get ready or to take pictures of our own. Im struggling to find a place where I can blow dry my hair due to the fact that the instagram and facebook pictures, they’re linked together. The key to a successful page is looking pretty and after work I really don’t look so amazing.

 

I still have the recipe running and i still get updates to my phone and notifications on my twitter account when new post is formed. here are the most recent tweets and notifications.  But it is pretty funny because all of the posts are about weaves and hair extensions for african american people  soo funny! SO it doesnt really help my sister out much but it was worth a shot. One problem i wanted when i came across this IFTTT recipe was that i wanted to connect it to living social.com or groupon but there was no channel for those sites. Which was a bummer because i could use it all the time if it was a groupon or living social in my everyday life to find things like a blow out for my hair.

Assignment #1 part 1

Social Breach: for my breach I chose to do two things. One was to invade personal space by stepping closer to the person i was talking to and the other was staring at them in the eyes will having a conversation while keeping a straight face. Keep the straight face was the hardest thing to do. So i went up to different family members and did it. my family all get frustrated very easily. So it was evemn funnier. So i would start the conversation asking how they were and they day was. First i kept a good distance then i moved clsoer and closer until i made them step back or have them say something like what are you doing back off. Each and every one of them had the same reaction. thye all were so confused and took a step back to get that personal space back. I got a lot of what the **** is wrong with you. can you stop. BACK OFF.  they got so angry it was great as i expected for them to do. You could tell that they were uncomfortable because their facial expressions and how their body reacted to the experiment. I even got a few shoves. HOW RUDE.

 

Terms and conditions-Group 2 Zach, Erika, Dani & Ivana

Terms and conditions

In our group we created a wearable beanie prosthetic that allowed for people who interact with you to have your terms and conditions in your face as well as to make sure they read them. ON our prosthetic we created a beanie using a LCD screen and Arduino kit to scroll out terms on our forehead. Terms and Conditions in our world today just get pushed aside and not taken seriously. Everyone, including myself, just clicks accept and goes onto their merry way. We wanted to take our project to be a little weird and creepy. We struggled in the decision-making when we first started we had many ideas. We decided to create our own terms and conditions instead of using the boring Facebook or any other pages terms. We actually thought about combining all of the terms and conditions from a few different websites and then planned on scrolling it across all jumbled up but we though it would be better to have the person interacting with you accept to your own personal terms and conditions to be your friend. We created the beanie with a conductive piece of wearable fabric so when hands are shaken then it accepts the terms and conditions of that specific person. We thought that having the terms on your head would allow the people interacting with you to understand and know beforehand of what becoming friends with you is going to be like and what you expect. We created a hackpad page of the terms and conditions we wanted to use. But unfortunately we could only get the first few bullets to scroll on the LCS screen. Then it would glitch and become webbing characters. At that point we had to reset the arduino and start all over again from the beginning. We tested out our project in the Purchase library and went up to a few people and asked them if they could participate in our assignment. So filmed them shaking hands and their interaction. At first very awkward, social breach at its finest. The link to the video is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8mzDG_ORAUw

During the shooting while Dani wore the hat and went up to people in the library and while Erika filmed it I was the live tweeter, blowing up our classes feed. It was actually the first time tweeting. Zach was the programmer and the prosthetic model maker.

Exercise #2

For this social breach we had to take a social media and misuse it. So I come from a strict Albanian household. My parents never changed all my life always wanting to know where I am when im coming home. They would always worry when or if I left the house … I never did anyways… but now they can be sure of when I leave home and when I am home. Home is where the Wifi automatically connects. SO I set up a IFTTT recipe to create a message on my mothers phone when I connect to the CE20BE wifi connection.. or otherwise HOME. So every time I connect a notification which says, device has connected to CE20BE. Or the opposite device is disconnected from CE20BE. As well as a direct message to twitter that says Ivana has connected to Home -.. Ivana has disconnected to Home.

Assignment Three Proposal- Processing Bot

Ever since I entered this college three years ago, I have always been a mathematics and computer science major. In this major we started our learning code with Processing 2. Processing 2 is an open sourced language, which is based on top of Java. Throughout the years we ran through and explored many languages including Python, Java, HTML, CSS, JavaScript and JQuery. For this assignment I would like to go back to my language that I enjoyed the most which was Processing 2. In Computer Science 1 in my freshman year much of my learning process was using the processing 2 references on www.processing.org/reference/. I would like to create a twitter bot taking a word from the reference on processing’s website every few hours and tweeting it on my page along with a link to that word and definition. below are screen shots of the processing page These are the words that will randomly be picked and posted to my account a long with a link to their definitions and examples, the reference page.

example the twitter bot will tweet:

mouseX

www.processing.org/reference/mouseX.html

this is the reference the link sends you.

Everything but Google sucks

I failed. Unfortunately. It isn’t even the browser or YouTube. I changed my phone’s browser/home screen to Bing. I would have thought that would be the hardest due to the fact I always have my phone in my hands. But no! I that was the easiest. Google did pop up once or twice but I immediately closed it. But what i failed to and couldn’t over come was the trusty google maps and google translate. I used the maps twice once to pick up my best friend and once to pick up  my mother. Its crazy how just a few blocks can throw you off. And how much you depend on navigation. And Google translate my trusty friend.  Used Speak to my family and close friends back in  Montenegro everyday. Used it maybe three times to either check a spelling or to write a really long message to make sure they understood it word for word.  Usually I translate to Serbian or Albanian depending on the person. Very hard.  But this week not once have not used gmail, youtube, google  browser, google searches and waze

Tough assignment Google is everywhere! Unfortunately i have to take the  walk of shame and post this blog!
