There’s a little ball of anxiety spinning around in my belly looking for reasons to be worried, at the moment it’s focused on having to get posts written ahead because of the busy time I have coming up, starting tomorrow night with work. Actually it was trying to get my sim card to work in my new smart phone that really got it started, there is a special kind of frustration when you don’t quite know what you are doing with technological stuff. I’m much better versed in the more emotional kind of stuff, please Goddess send me a ten-year old to help me with this issue!
I probably sound like a Luddite don’t I, they were a group of artisans during the Industrial Revolution who protested against the new machinery that threatened to replace them with unskilled labour, it’s now a term used to refer to those who are anti technology. Well that isn’t me, once I get that sim card working I’m going to have heaps of fun working out how to get the best out of my new phone.
Technology in the guise of social media is actually having an incredibly positive effect on our culture, the global village has never been so well-connected as it is today. To be a Luddite now would be to behave like an ostrich and bury your head in the sand, the trick is to use these new pathways constructively as tools to bring us all closer together in a positive way.
Laughter is a great way to create happy energy so please have a look at this incredibly silly video that purports to be a trailer for a movie about Twitter, an aspect of social media that is still a mystery to me at this point in time. Hope you enjoy, tweet, tweet!
