As for my homework of first week, I posted an old work of mine, which is a data visualization project that allow people to see the weather of different cities,Weather Bag is a project that visualizing the weather data API, and showing the city weather using city pictures, color (temperature), bubbles (humidity), and cloud moving(wind speed) see my work here

Some of the problems that I encounter is that I failed to load the files that were inside of a fold with a space inside of the name. Besides, I should open the html instead of the js file, since I’m really know to those ideas, I even surprised myself on that.

Reading response:

This is a heavy reading for me, at one point I was totally lost and have to repeat from the begining, and keep a note just in case my bad memory.

I was very surprised that this was written in 1945, I tried to picture what it was like during that time, and I believe that was the year that China just had the war finished with japan, and my grandfather was 8 years old, my country was not even founded.

Dr.Vannevar Bush illustrated the ideas and usage of some technonlgy ideas and kind predict their future, due to lack of knowledge of the history of that time, ranging from transmitting, record, typewriting, photography, feel like reading a wiki page, in very much details. And in a very big scale. From not only tech part but also how those innvoation affects people.

However I was felt touched by the end :

The applications of science have built man a well-supplied house, and are teaching him to live healthily therein. They have enabled him to throw masses of people against one another with cruel weapons. They may yet allow him truly to encompass the great record and to grow in the wisdom of race experience. He may perish in conflict before he learns to wield that record for his true good. Yet, in the application of science to the needs and desires of man, it would seem to be a singularly unfortunate stage at which to terminate the process, or to lose hope as to the outcome.

 

Science was created by human, and should be in the hand, and in the control of human.

This also reminds me of the Alpha Go who won basically all the human go player, and can even make jokes afterwards.

But this is such a big topic that require more discussion.
