I recently helped complete a group project in NEWM-N110. I felt good about what we had made until after seeing what the other groups had done. Our mock-website was shitty and sophomoric in comparison to most of the others. Maybe I am just being too hard on myself. I felt like our entire presentation hinged on the wit of our main presenter. He was using his charm and sense of humor to pass off a piece of dog shit as a website. This is unacceptable to me.
The grades did come back and we got a score of 86%. I felt we could have done much better. There were specifications that were laid out that we did not include. There was no video and there was no audio. A potential user would not be able to experience the thing we were selling. We were supposed to be selling something and we did not. We also id not allow for any kind of community to spring up around this website.
We suck. We suck so badly.
