It Makes Sense

Posted by Ryan O'Neil in Ryan O'Neil, Technology Reviews. 1 Comment

25th October

It makes sense. You’re still in the first generation of consumer cell phones. Of course you’re going to be addicted to them more than people will be in the future. You’re just—more comfortable with your phone. It makes uncomfortable elevator rides go quicker. Eating alone feels less awkward when scrolling through Facebook posts, as does dinner at the family reunion. For a little while, why is it so bad to join the catatonic masses with eyes-glazed by the flicker of their phones?

Why? Because you’re sacrificing your now for someone else’s yesterday. Everything you see online has already happened. You’re more content spending time watching a video or getting mad at a status that happened in the past than actually living where you actually are. The vicious cycle worsens: the more you envelop yourself in your phone, the harder it … Read More »



Qurate

Most of us have at least one or two close friends they want to keep up with the most online. They might be a best friend, a sibling, an “interest” (oh la la), whomever! But they’re the ones you want to keep up with. You could be friends with them on Facebook, follow them on Twitter, and email cool stuff to them. But in my opinion, technology seems to be set up kind of backwards in this regard. While you care about your connection with that person, it seems like your favorite communication with them is all over the place. You have to go to five or six different places or apps to see everything you talked with them about. Wouldn’t it be great if there was an app that could bring all of your communication together based on the … Read More »

What’s Your Profile Say?

Posted by Nathan Binion in Uncategorized. 1 Comment

7th September

A few years ago, I opened my first Everyone’s Connected home page, or otherwise known as an EC page. While I knew about the EC phenomenon, I didn’t really get into it until some of my youth kept asking if they could connect to me. So, I opened up my own page and have been learning a few tricks along the way. One thing I always do is look at a person’s profile page to learn more about them. I have found in virtual conversing, whether it is internet chatting, instant messaging, or blogging, some do not always tell the truth about themselves in their profile page. What once was a tall, dark, intellectual, and kind millionaire turns into a short, barely-out-of-sixth-grade, voice-still-crackin’, still-riding-a-bike-to-junior-high boy. All of this because someone finds out that your profile page doesn’t match your true … Read More »


His Space or Mine?

Posted by Britney Prince in Uncategorized. 1 Comment

11th February

First, there was the frenzy to display the face on a virtual book. Then you had to be connected to everyone. Before too long, we were all staking out a little piece of virtual real estate as our space. I’m guilty of hours spent there, crafting witty sayings, fine tuning the “about me” section, updating my interests, wants, and desires. I announce to the world a play-by-play of my days’ activities and designate which friends are the most deserving of a top spot on the page that is my own.

How typically self-centered.

It’s not just limited to the virtual life either. In a fashion reminiscent of childhood, I pull out the chalk and designate what is mine, which hours of the day I have as my own, and which ones I will design to give to others. I listen to others … Read More »
