Dr. Oblivion Day 4: “Dr. Oblivion is missing!”

In a strange twist, T.A. Jim Groom is left stranded by Dr. Oblivion and left to do all the work of ds106 in his absence. The doctor’s daughter, Bianca O’Blivion gives us all the details. Meanwhile a discussion on visual design and specific assignments for the course is facilitated with Martha Burtis (@mburtis) and Tim Owens (@timmmmyboy) and later Michael Branson Smith comes on to talk about game theory and ds106.

The live chat transcript for the video is here.

Given the unexpected turn of ds106 today, the first visual/design assignment is going to be to make a “Missing Persons” poster for Dr. O’Blivion. You can see the assignment here. Be sure to tag it properly, the most highly rated 3 posters will be printed out and posted around the world in physical space.

Also, Martha Burtis found some interesting clues that you may want to follow-up on, like this mysterious video published by Dr. O’Blivion soon before he went missing.

In an attempt to assist you with your poster design, Tim Owens has provided a series of resources (see links section of the following link) for various fonts, image editors, and the like, see it here.

Additionally, Michael Branson Smith came on to talk about ds106 as a Role Playing Game (RPG) and has at least two excellent posts on this topic so far: part 1 and part 2.

Finally we ended with Alan Liddell’s “News on the March” which summarizes yesterday’s happening, but could never have predicted today’s events.

    “Let us wait while Jim Groom sets up his equipment.”

    That about sums it all up.

    Bianca Oblivion rules.

  2. Araba Bky says:

    Should we be concerned that the “dr.” insists that he was not missing on the chat today? Was it or was it not him?

  3. Joe Fehrman says:

    It doesn’t matter. Because we live in the Matrix! Ha Ha!

    Good Araba,

    I am here. And I assure you it is me. The real me, not the strange O’Blivion or whoever Mr. Groom has conjured up this time.

    Not to worry or be concerned. I am safe here. While it is possible that Mr. Groom may at some point “blow his stack” as it were, he will do me no harm.

    I appreciate the concern. When you find me, you will see further into the light and at some point in the future, you shall see me, live in the flesh. Or at least on SKYPE.

    Until that time I bid you a gracious ado, and hope you make some lovely art.
