Okay, that says it all, this blog has been online for 17 years and never really got its footing but all that is about to change. We are not only going to cover technology and media, we are going to start talking about a lot more issues and provide a technology and media angle. There is a “no hold barred” attitude going forward and we are going to let it all hang out, so to speak.
Lets talk about iThinkMedia’s future. This site will become a sounding board for not only myself but for many others who have stories to tell. We will have guest authors, anonymous authors covering topics that may be a bit controversial but is on the mind of most of us in the United States. We will talk about the current issues and tragedies going on in our world, especially in the United States. I know in my opinion as I watch the politics and social dynamics we are re-thinking many of the traditional cultural and social things as we move into the future. As I mentioned to one of my friends, we are living the future, just without flying cars.
This site, will provide you with resources, information, and something to think about. Our goal is to open your mind to the future, to “think” about how technology and media affects our lives.
I’ll quote Sherry Turkle, “We are inhibited from aggression by the presence of another face, another person. We’re aware that we’re with a human being. On the Internet, we are disinhibited from taking into full account that we are in the presence of another human being.”
