How I saved the world…. (The DS106 world that is)

So every week we always have daily creates. This week we were required to do three and then post each of them in one blog post and make a story for them, so here’s my story about the day I, named Tara for the story, saved the DS106 world with the daily creates I did.

It was a wonderful April evening, the birds were chirping, the grill was cooking dinner, and Tara Powerpuff was enjoying a book on the back patio. All the sudden her secret superhero cell phone was ringing and she answered – it was Professor B. He told Tara that an unknown force was causing people to forget what DS106 (only the greatest class on the web) is. Tara hung up the phone and sprang into action!

She drove around and around until she spotted something fishy and found the force terrorizing potential students. She realized it was circle man and that the only way to stop him was with triangles! She quickly took action and formed a weapon so powerful it would stop him dead in his tracks. That weapon was a poster appreciating DS106 with triangles!

She posted it everywhere! All over social media, the town, city, state, universe! EVERYWHERE! Circle Man stood no chance, when Tara walked up to him he held his head in shame. He told Tara that he didn’t mean to make people forget, it’s just that he had no time to finish his assignments and showed Tara what his day looked like.

Tara had seen those kinds of days before but said it was no excuse to mess with people’s memories. Circle Man apologized for his behavior and said he would never do it again. He drew himself a manhole before Tara and jumped in, to never return. Tara went back home to realize she had left the grill on and had to deal with that mess. So much for her peaceful evening.


Home on the Web – 1/18 Daily Create

Today’s daily create was to write a ds106 themed verse of Home on the Range. It was too long to post on Twitter so here it is!!!

Oh, give me a web where the creative roam,
Where the student and the teacher all learn,
How audacity works or to create a cool verse,
And how to mash up a song to be heard.

Domain, domain of one’s own,
Where the creative and tech savvy go,
Where I’m free to be me, in my comforting seat,
And not a spam comment shall I know.
