“Our relationship with our cyber objects is part of our real, material, embodied life, life lived with families, life lived on the move, juggling between our various roles and responsibilities.” ( Massanari & Jones, 2006. p64)
This extract from Chapter 5 ‘Catching Waves’ by Wendy Robinson captures my entangled relationship with technology. I feel that I can be both ambitious in my career , a supportive teacher, an ardent student but keep on top of my family life and fulfil my role as a loving mother. Utilising the technology available puts my mind at ease as it allows me to be in more than one place at a time.
