Triple Troll Attack

This assignment is called the “Triple Troll Attack”.

“The assignment is to take a photo, a quote from a different character than the one in the picture, and a name from a third character different from the other two, place the quote in the picture, and “sign” it with the third person’s name. The three characters are to be from three different, but similar in genre, series” (via ds106)


I used a simple, flash based photo editor to create my project.

1. Find photo of subject

2. Drag and drop

3. Enter text, adjust placement


Photo: Douglas Engelbart

Quote: Bill Gates + Steve Jobs

Douglas Engelbart was an American internet and technology pioneer. He is best known for his contribution to the human-computer interaction or HCI. “This resulted in the invention of the computer mouse” (BBC: Man Behind The Mouse). Needless to say, he contributed a great amount to computer technology. Bill Gates and Steve Jobs need no introduction. They both revolutionized computer software and made it accessible to the world. I also thought it would be appropriate to combine Gates’ quote and Jobs’ name. Although they were “enemies” on the surface, they always held a deep sense of respect for one another. I believe Gates’ quote is very much connected with both Engelbart, and Steve Jobs (as well as himself), who were both pioneers and revolutionaries in their own regard. All three individuals will be (if not already) listed as the all time greats in the technology field.

    Great idea to combine Steve Jobs & Bill Gates!

    As mentioned in a comment elsewhere on your blog, I think it’s helpful to include the name and a link back to any tools you’ve used in creating your projects.

    As with Paul, I like the mixing of Jobs and Gates for this triple troll attack.
