Intro Post from Hooves

I’m what you call a post-traditional student, simply put, a working adult trying to complete his degree. This class interests me because I want to learn about mobile content production. Definitely exploring the many new mobile applications and their relationship to generating revenue is my main interest. I find that it is extremely difficult keeping up with the herd and sometimes find it is a burden to keep up with so much new technology (MIT App Inventor). I wish to simplify my life some day but realize my plans have to change for right now. I realize it will take many extra hours of hard work to engage in MSP-4541 assignments this semester.

Learning how to communicate using different online situations will be a definite take away. Plus strengthening my writing skills and sharpening analytical thinking will help. I really enjoy learning the cutting edge technology more than the social aspects. Look forward to learning many new concepts and theories, from the likes of Thomas W. Hazlett; for example, in Arceneaux’s & Kavoori’s, The Mobile Media Reader chapter 5, “A Brief history of U.S. Mobile Spectrum” (Hazlett, 2012, Page 79)
