Getting Political

Yesterday we saw record turn-out for the mid-term elections. Living in an increasingly connected digital world it's hard to ignore the influence that social media has on not only voting but political views in general.

What was your experience on social leading up to the vote? What type of messages were you being exposed to and by whom? Were you influenced by what you saw? Did you do research to confirm it's truth?

Links Make the Web Go Around

Website links probably feel so mundane you hardly think about them. Over time technology can become so ingrained in our daily life we rarely stop to think about its impact. Consider the modern combustion engine in cars. Most days I don't even acknowledge it's existence as I drive from my home to the office. When I stop to think about it, I'm reminded of just how incredible it is. Here we have a machine that creates tens of thousands of controlled explosions every minute allowing us to travel at incredible speeds. Soon, these machines will all be driving themselves.
