The Daily Daniel


Hello everyone! Welcome to one of my first blog posts, I am Daniel Mercado! Today I will be talking about what I have been working on this first week of classes!

First I made my Twitter account for this class so it can be mainly focused on the DS106 class rather than my obsession with memes and football on my regular Twitter. However, I still posted on my intro of myself on Twitter that I am obsessed with memes, puns, and the Steelers cause that is the main things about myself.

The second thing I made was a Youtube video for the daily create about the bag I use and how it would be useful for the post-apocalyptic world. Since I was using my school bag for this it wasn’t the most useful bag for a post-apocalyptic world considering the main things that were in my bag were books. I tried to add a lot of comedy in my video considering that would make up for the boring objects in my bag.

The last thing I created is the Instagram which I was not sure what to post at first. Then I decided that I would do two of my favorite pictures on the Internet and then two pictures of myself so people can see what I look like, so I posted those with a description of myself.

The last thing I will mention is how I feel about the post-apocalyptic theme. I love this theme because many things I have read or played are based on this theme of surviving during the post-apocalyptic times. The games I have played that have this theme is the Fallout series, The Last of Us, Creeper World 3: Arc Eternal, and Left for Dead 2. The main game that interested me in the way it had a post-apocalyptic theme is The Last of Us, this game has the typical zombie shooter theme to it, however, the zombies were started by a fungus that if it got in your bloodstream in any way you would turn into a zombie. The ordinary way it was passed on was through a bite or airborne through spores in a very concentrated area, however, one of the main characters has an immunity to the fungus and the main part of the story is trying to get them to the research center to figure out how to get this immunity out to the public. This idea of zombies being started by a plague was pretty interesting to me since it spread rapidly and could be transferred in multiple ways rather than just a bite. So that’s why I would consider a plague post-apocalyptic scenario to be the most interesting to me.
