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.

Pamela – Small tip for your Windows notepad

Tech tip from Pamela:


Who knew the humble Windows Notepad was capable of anything other than, well, taking text only notes.

If you’re searching for a simple application to write a diary or take daily notes, look no further than Notepad. Or of course you can always post here, at the Rise of the technology class. Hopefully we are always your first choice.

Other than that you can refer to windows humble application.

Well, with this tip you can make notepad automatically add the current day and time to a document as soon as you open it and save you the headache of doing so yourself.

To accomplish this:

1. Open Notepad

2. Type “.LOG” on the first line of the new document

3. Save the file and close Notepad

Now when you open the same file again, you’ll see that Notepad would have added the current Date and time to the document automatically.

Or you can always press F5  😀

I think that’s the easiest way.  But if you like complicated, go ahead and try the long way.


Kaito – breaking sterotypes…being the artist


Some of my friends in the US do not know how much the center of culture can start in Tokyo. Imagine please New York, Paris, London, Berlin and San Paulo all of them in to one city. That is Tokyo. Japan is an island. It is difficult for Western people to make the trip. Culture in form of art and music begin here and develops. Invents itself. Yes, we are also the influence of the eastern and western world culture. The force of artistic culture is so powerful here that it is feeling more than the technology advances of our culture. Please see the following link for a new movement to share artistic talent through expression and content. Thank you very much.
