What have I learned?

  • SI4 – Book
    • Organise a book
    • Edit a book
  • Design
    • Work with a editorial team / resolve conflicts / discussion / work out compromises
    • Do well-grounded research
    • Making connections to printer / bookbinder / content / tutors (communication skills)
    • Deal with small budget / find solutions
    • Bookmaking
      • End / Beginning
      • Spine / Blurb / Cover
  • Archiving
    • What is a archive?
    • Why archive?
    • How archive?
  • Technical skills
    • Use the Wiki API
    • Generate Algorithmic Outputs
    • Work with the command-line
    • Use raspberry
    • Use git
    • Make a book
    • Printing Techniques
    • Communication skills (Also from missunderstandings)
  • Open Culture

What I see now

  • Different approach to using the computer
  • Different view on software use – critical approach
  • Use licenses
  • Get new sense / understanding on software / networks / publishing
  • Connecting Design and content
  • More focus in the content, than look
  • Transfer & apply certain concepts

Practical Things

  • network: designers / institutions / locations / paper-supplier / printer

Where do I want to go?

  • Interested in connection between Algorithm and Design / Content
  • Generative Outputs
  • Bookscanning > Layoutdetection > applying style

Wishlist

  • Python
  • Machine Learning
  • Thinking about tools and its use (theory)
  • More connection: algorithm – SI4 / printed matter / archiving
  • More feedback?

What to do

  • Improve reading / writing skills
  • Install Linux
  • Explore Mediawiki / Archive of work
  • Open Source Software

Questions

  • Focus on design still possible?
  • More feedback on (graphic) design / processes
