I’ve been having such fun with the DS106 assignment database. After going through almost every single assignment and having brief flashes of inspiration on at least half of them, I decided to jump in with another silly one.
Today’s assignment is “Patty Pioneer.” To quote the directions, “Simply put, this assignment involves editing a picture of any Computer Pioneer so that it looks like they are eating/about to eat/holding a burger or similar types of fast food.”
Seeing as I know just about nothing about computer pioneers, I decided to go with the first thought that popped into my little head: Al Gore. Because, you know, Al Gore invented the internet.*
He seems like the kind of guy who would like to eat healthy. What’s healthier than a Subway sub? I mean, those folks over at The Biggest Loser
like it, and inventing the internet is hard work. You deserve a great big sandwich, Al.
*I totally know that Al Gore didn’t invent the internet, but I do like to perpetuate the myth. If you want the real story, check out Snopes
. Al Gore WAS influential in the popularity of the internet, so I think he counts as a computer pioneer.
