This is a first-hand experience test of concepts designed by myself (Shawna Hein), Hazel Onsrud and Aylin Selcukoglu for our Master’s project at the UC Berkeley School of Information, Squash & Vine.
Specifically I'm testing what it's like to send short, simple text and audio updates while farming.
I am currently doing an apprenticeship at Honey in the Heart Farm, and I will be updating this via my (regular nonsmart!) cell phone while working in the field, as well as posting photos and more thorough thoughts in the evenings.
Short messages are probably text messages, audio messages are calls from my cell phone.
