I am part of a generation between. Computers, the Internet, and now social media have all made their mark on the world in my lifetime. I was very young when the early personal computers first started becoming a home appliance. Sometimes it seems like technology is like a classmate. I see its growth and progress in relation to my own, and as I try to find my place in the world technology also seems to struggle to find some sort of identity, some sort of definition of its place within societies that are changing almost as fast as it is.
We have not yet made that place for technology. We have begun, many have embraced the new media and new possibilities with all of themselves, but we are still trying to understand how this shift in human relationships affects our future and if it can really help overcome the challenges we face. Like any tool, our new technology in it of itself will do absolutely nothing without dedicated, skilled, and creative individuals. I have some ideas that I want to contribute. Maybe I will be able to bring some of them to fruition; otherwise hopefully someone can find inspiration in them. Please check back here to follow any updates or ideas. I might include a few rants as well.
