Rise of the Technology Class

These conversations are between students from Ecuador, India, Israel, Japan, Mexico, Spain and the US who see technology serving a higher purpose: A counter-culture to their predecessors. This is evidence of a new type of generative class who apply technology to their creativity with art, music, science and involvement within the community. Their activity is transparent and active to our evolving civility. These multinational students are socially conscious storytellers. The Moderator of this conversation, Michael Davis is an Executive MBA graduate of Steinbeis University Germany, The Berlin School of Creative Leadership.

Veena – Internet and Television

I just got the internet and TV back at my house today, after they had been down for nearly two weeks. At first it’s horrible… You feel disconnected from your friends (no Facebook, no instant messaging), and to the rest of the world (no Conan O’Brien, no Michael Jackson’s memorial). It really doesn’t get much easier, but I found other things to do, simply because I had to. I spent most of my time at home reading, which I would not have done had the cable been working properly, and I made a much greater effort that normal to leave the house whenever I could. As hard as it was for me to go without internet and TV for so long, I think that every once in a while it’s good to step away from those things and find other ways to occupy your time, if for no other reason but to say that you can.

We have to disconnect smetimes to internet and television, we can do a lot of thinks with no internet and TV. It’s good to step away from those things. Reading books is really good, walking on to the mountain, see the countryside, all that things are much better than internet and TV.

I know exactly that feeling. I get it when i my phone isn’t working. It feels like i am missing out on things and i always think, “how did people live without a cell phone?”

I was watching a James Bond movie (Sean Connery) the other day and i was thinking about his whole image and swagger. He isn’t on his phone every two seconds texting or calling someone, he is living a badass life. It made me think of how much time is wasted just texting or calling people instead of just going out and doing something. It was then that i promised myself that i would be more badass, like Sean Connery.
