I was watching this video (which is a few years old), and a couple of thoughts came to mind:
- I was thinking about how quickly we are to announce the arrival of the latest, and the best new technology. Whether it be the iPhone, Twitter…whatever-you name it.
- We automatically assume that the latest is the greatest.
- And…who really cares which is faster. Does it matter?
Technology is Fast, but Redemption is Slow.
Why? Because after the 4th of July weekend I will be heading into a new blogging series, which will basically be a re-evaluation of our engagement in social media/technology, and some of the necessary habits that I think must developed if we are going to find a balance between our use and non-use of technology. Lots of people are asking questions around this topic, the latest being John Dyer’s post, Using Technology without Technology Using You: Got Any Tips? Stop by John’s post and lend him your thoughts for a workshop he will be teaching.
And starting next week, look for a series of posts on the topic of fostering a social media/technology rhythm.
