Synthesis and Evaluation – Assignment # 5 – #crit101

Originally published here.

It all started with the usual difficulty of getting in touch with anybody in the group I was assigned to work wih. This time, having to produce a video, we needed to meet synchronously which can be, apparently, an even tougher challenge to many. We needed to work synchronously AND rather early as making a video, not having a clue as to who wants to do what and when, can be a huge time sink.

Hello @ca73y, @treksartist, @reece_garside can we decide on a day we could meet…

@plerudulier @treksartist @reece_garside Meet difficult due to time zone diff in Oz. Have images to get us started…
