I am taking Technical Web Design at
British Columbia Institute of Technology
until Feb 2014.
The first weeks were hell.
I think spatially/laterally/globularly, and do it so intensively, that I look at the world in wireframe with surfaces. This is why I rarely play 3D games. I get spatially stuck inside the game... literally, as if I am an actor in the movie Tron.
In learning the basics of HTML and CSS, I was getting lost in the field of datapoints when trying to model the waypoints, but found a way forward with weeks of intense metacogntive study. Now, I am beginning to picture dancing arrays of functions and solution sets.
This attached tutorial is for other lateral/spatial thinkers: it is what I had to do cognitively, to create bounds in thought-space, so I would have a place to lock-in html/css and programming data for study.
Hope it is useful to other people!
