Gardener Campbell: A Personal Cyberinfrastructure

“Any technology gradually creates a totally new human environment.”

I choose this quote while reading Gardener Campbell’s “A Personal Cyberinfrastucture” because it caught my attention. I like the quote because I believe that it’s true. Although I understand this quote its kind of hard for me to explain it. From reading this article I get that technology can be very complicated and it gets more and more complex as the years go by. Technology is a world of its own. And thats what this quote is explaining. Technology creates a whole new world for the people who use it. Its like having your own virtual world that you create and shape. The reason why I chose this quote is because I feel like I can relate. Now that I’m creating and developing my own site I feel like I have my own world.

I’ve been playing around with the appearance of my blog. Ive chose to go with the original theme that my blog was first set up with. I like it, its plain, looks cool and I can do alot with it. The only thing I really did was change the header image to one of my custom drawings. I also inserted a GIF as my background image. I did create an about page but i havent figured it all out yet. As im customize and creating this site I’m still figuring out what I want it to be about.

Hi

The installation process was really confusing until I watched the the tutorial. I plan on personalizing my website to things that interest me most like art, drawing, tattoos etc. I didn’t put much thought into my domain name.

The installation process was really confusing until I watched the the tutorial. I plan on personalizing my website to things that interest me most like art, drawing, tattoos etc. I didn’t put much thought into my domain name. It’s just a name my close friend called me time to time. After she starting calling me Kilo it just kind of stuck and everyone started calling me Kilo.

Your Own Domain.

Having your own domain name gives you control of your online identity. You get to control what people see when they search you. I believe people create their own domain names for these reasons. Choosing my own domain name? My domain name will be based on a nickname one of my closest friends gave me. “Kilo” she always called me this and eventually it just stuck. I changed my instagram name to kiloswank which i honestly just made up not realizing the word “swank” had an actual meaning. But eventually everyone was calling me “Kilo” and “Keylolo” and i just went with it. For my domain name I chose “Kiloswank.com”. At first I didn’t think the name would be available but it was so I just chose to use it. I would like to use this name as my domain because everyone I know knows me as Kilo and I feel like it would be a great domain name because it represents me.
