Growing Up Online & Make Love Not Warcraft

Here's the link to the Frontline we watched today.  There are several themes:
  • Technology transforming education
  • Technology as a social danger {behaviors, conflicts, & "improper" interactions}
  • Technology as an extension of the self {being public}
Think about these for the week after next.  Remember, technology is one of two major forces in the external business environment {the other being globalization}.  Understanding it is key and helps differentiate marketers.

One technological microculture, gamers, are becoming increasingly mainstream.  This South Park offers a cultural critique and good pwning satire of stereotypical gamer culture.  Feel free to blog about your reactions to either.
