TED is a fantasic resourse. Beats the crap on TV any day of the week. This is an interesting 3 minute talk on mobile phones and social media. The things that most struck me is the phrase “I share. Therefore I am” and “The reality is less interesting than the story I will tell”. This is so true of the way we interact with technology today – I just have to think of the amount of time that is spent taking photos at parties and nights out or the person who films an entire gig. The recording of an event becomes more important than the event itself and what’s more, time spent recording the event is time not actually spent participating in the event.
Interesting, whilst watching the video I was thinking about this post and what I would write about the video.
