Posting for the sake of posting – is it worthwhile

This random thought came about as we were playing with IFTTT to get our blogs running, I noticed the stream of tweets which merely shared something relating to technology and wondered if we were all falling into a trap of just posting to twitter so that it was shared, but without any real reason or in-depth thought about what we were sharing?  This is pertinent to me as I blog and vlog and to me, it’s important to give thought to the content you share, have a purpose that the content aims to achieve rather than just a constant stream of randomness which could be perceived as digital muttering.

TWEET! – being wowed by tech

I shared an article earlier about how Google’s A.I. has been learning, my thoughts on Google translate started here. An auto-translation on my phone allowed me to take part in a conversation on facebook with Dirk and his friends in Germany, it was about glitter, but I found this quite exhilarating that tech could now allow us to interact in this way so easily. Tech really is becoming commonplace. So why are we seeing it banned in our classrooms or at best locked down to the degree that it’s useless?
