At first, I didn't really know what the video was getting at, but as it continued, It was quite funny that they realized the unnecessary aspects of their packaging. They want to emphasize how useless much of the information is and how it is all squeezed on there that nothing stands out anymore more. Feature creep and information overload can cover the real information that the customer wants to know. This makes for bad communication because the customer has to search for the details.

Learning Module 6

Original:
The Context: Venmo was created by two young men who met in college and bounced from job to job as software engineers, but always dreamed of creating their own startup. These men are Iqram Magdon-Ismail and Andrew Kortina. They tried out a couple different ideas for a startup like “Swooge” and “Philafunk” before the idea of money sharing came to fruition.

Revising for Context

By on

The draft has the right kinds of information because it is nothing too intense, but it contains skills that are important to learning Photoshop. However, I overran the amount of pages I was aiming for.

I think that I provide good information because I provide screenshots of my own work in my project as examples.

I need to revise it a bit to give more explanation of why someone would use these processes and put some more emotion into it since it seems solely instructional right now.

"About Me" and Documentation Revision

By on

I discovered that I have way too many "I haves" and "this will be" terms that could easily be taken out or changed to make the writings sound better. I also realized that I have a problem with starting sentences with "I am" every time, especially in the "About Me." This process helped me realize these things and see where I need to make changes to my sentences.

Documentation Project Research

There have been many times that a picture I have taken has that one small imperfection that is too noticeable to avoid. I would like to begin my project with a few small hacks that show the process of fixing these imperfections. After rummaging through a couple sites, I came up with a list of hacks that will be helpful to know including removing shiny spots from a persons skin, sculpting a face and removing stray hairs. I have found that these are pretty simple so I will put them at the beginning of my project as a beginners step.

Submission Notes:

I am unsure whether or not to write more for my role as vice president of my organization. I could elaborate, but I do not know if it is necessary.

I decided not to include my job as assistant manager because it does not pertain to my career. Was this a good choice?

I mostly have added computer skills. Should I add more?
