How early is too early to teach your children about technology? My teens learned to play computer games –even the online games — while still in diapers.  Sitting on my lap, they learned the fine motor skills of clicking a mouse in just the right spot to connect the dots. It wasn’t long before the […]

Breaking News: The Tweet that started it all

As soon as I heard that President Obama was going to address the nation about a mysterious topic, I sat up in my chair. “That’s weird,” I thought.  The news anchors seemed as befuddled as the rest of the nation. Usually we at least know the topic.  I popped up my Twitter app and squinted […]

Disney wants your vacation to be Gowalla active

Social media and your voting experience

Were you a little foggy this morning? I was. Still am, and I brought it on myself.  I was up late into the night texting, Tweeting and keeping tabs on my Facebook friends’ reactions to the election results.

Crowdsourcing: If you have to ask…

“What should I do?” Nike Basketball sincerely wants Lebron James fans to weigh in on this creative new ad titled “Rise.” But is the basketball superstar ready for the honest answers? He asks the question more times than I care to count. But he also inserted one sentence without the questionmark: “I am not a […]

Do you have fake friends?

I just read a fascinating blog post about a guy who exposed a “poser” on Facebook. Seems that he befriended this person without really knowing much about her other than the fact that she seemed to be friends with many of his friends, so he accepted her as his own. But something didn’t sit right […]
