One of my professors recently had a birthday. The AI’s for our Experience Design class, arranged a surprise birthday party for our professor Jeff Bardzell. The theme was Pink and Black. All of the students were asked to dress up in pink or black. For my ‘costume’ I bought my first pink shirt and a tie to go with it.

Here is Jeff wearing a tiara that the AI’s gave to him. Just a bit later he was fully dressed in a pink wig, beads, sunglasses, and cape. It was glorious.

After class we got together for a quick impromptu photo shoot in the Informatics Lobby.

Furthermore, I was opportunistic and submitted some photos from the event as a class project on Shared Memory. In this assignment I talk about how digital technologies allow people to more quickly share memories with each other. Digital technologies also allow us to quickly share these memories with others who were not present. For further information, download and read the PDF.
