Appreciation of Crash Course

It is quite boring and tedious, to study a subject that is far from your interest. However, some media tools make this process a lot easier. And I think it’s well worth to appreciate them. What I feel thankful this week is Crash Course, educational youtube channel. It has numerous subjects and many series about the each specific subject. World history, biology, chemistry, psychology, economy, astronomy, literature and many more.

As I was watching about the subjects I’m not an erudite, they catalyse me to cover my missing knowledge although they are probably design for teenagers.

Elaborately prepared and presented episodes keep my attention and teach it effectively, plus, they stimulate further questions around the topics. They are so much more than mediocre educational videos.

Meanwhile, You don’t have to pay fro watching videos.  Hence, you can watch freely.

Maxwell’s Equation

Scottish physicist James Clerk Maxwell(1831–79),  wrote equation that are simply enlightening. He worked on the ideas of Faraday and Kelvin, and succeeded in unifying electricity and magnetism, identifying the electromagnetic nature of light, and postulating the existence of other electromagnetic radiation.

Visible light, x-rays, sunlight , radio waves, television waves, wifi signals, bluetooth signals, cell phone transmission, and GPS all consist solely of Electric and Magnetic Fields. And how they propagate and interact with materials is completely determined by the above 2 equations of Maxwell.

First equation: The electric flux through a closed surface is proportional to the total charge enclosed by that surface.

Second equation: Maxwell second equation is also a form of Gauss’s law, only with magnetic flux instead of electric flux.

Third equation is modified version of Faraday’s equation.

Standarts Organizations

Important organisations to put some order to computer networks and data communications:

  • IEC – International Electrotechnical Commission
  • ITU – International Telecommunication Union
  • EIA – Electronic Industries Association
  • TIA – Telecommunications Industry Association
  • IETF – Internet Engineering Task Force
  • IEEE – Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers
  • ISO – International Organisations for Standardisation
  • NIST – National institutes of Standards and Technology
  • IBM – International Business Machines

Instant Sharing

Without doubts, the ability of instant sharing is a bloom in media history. It allows people to express themselves and their environment in a very organic and spontaneous way. The synchronisation of the real-time activity and its digital representation make the process more attractive and artistic. Rather than designing the order, the opportunity to go spontaneously give people to be more expressive.
There are types of instant photo sharing as I experienced. I can call one type as an impulsive sharing that is used for expressing surprised, shocked. This way is based on proof presenting.

The other type is showing the experience, environment or a subject that is attractive, interesting or engaging to your story.

Another type is showing yourself in the experience.

Games

“Game world is a simplified subdomain of the real world.” Steve Swink

Game industry developed as the result of the military contract spin off some of their products around the 1980s. Flight simulators design their technology for the arcade games, including game council PC games muds was growing with a pace.

For example, Silicon Valley made the major products the Nintendo export for the play station and the extremely successful Super Mario series came out of that.
