Pumped on Alice.org! Carnegie Mellon & geek training

Alice

Pump, pump it up!

What’s that ’80s song…Pump Up the Jam?? That’s my current mantra for this year to pump-up my focus and confidence while learning code (…with goal to better relate while interviewing folks for the project).

Thanks to renowned computer gods at Carnegie Mellon for teaching the newbies how to talk-code-shop.

Video/story structure; Top 10 documentaries; Alice.org

Friend Jennifer and spouse of a documentarian offered an appealing structural idea for the project: Select 5 themes which interviews thus far have addressed and then ensure those topics are addressed by future interviews. She also suggested bringing my own challenges with coding into the line of questioning (…these folks should help teach coding lingo).

And Jay gives it up for his Top 10 non-fiction faves.
