Timetoast and Timeline JS – A Review

Timetoast and Timeline JS – A Review

I decided to do my review of a Digital Humanities tool on a data visualisation tool as these are useful for representing data in a bright, interesting manner and may be useful to me in the future for portraying my data. I chose to do a comparison of two tools, Timetoast and Timeline JS, as both tools are similar timeline tools that show the data […]

Creative Commons – Protecting Our Creations

Creative Commons – Protecting Our Creations

Creative Commons is a really interesting concept in which an artist, a writer, or a creator of anything really can take out a free license that allows them to protect their work and highlight the ways in which they deem suitable for it to be shared, altered, reinvented if the person even allows this at all. This allows people who create their own work to […]

Twessay No. 1 – “Openness” – A Critical Response

Emojis; Is Language Evolving or Going Backwards?
