Online – All the Time

Sunday, April 10th, 2011

“By the age of eighteen, the average child is estimated to have watched more than 16,000 hours of television – more time than he has spend in school” (pgs.12-13).

This entry was actually saved as a draft last year (February 2010) and lost. Still a worthwhile article to read:


A couple of weeks ago, I read an article in the NY Times titled “If Your Kids Are Awake, They’re Probably Online. It starts by saying “The average young American now spends practically every waking minute — except for the time in school — using a smart phone, computer, television or other electronic device.” Then it goes on to say “Those ages 8 to 18 spend more than seven and a half hours a day with such devices, compared with less than six and a half hours five years ago, when the study was last conducted. And that does not count the hour and a half that youths spend texting, or the half-hour they talk on their cellphones.

And because so many of them are multitasking — say, surfing the Internet while listening to music — they pack on average nearly 11 hours of media content into that seven and a half hours.”

Re:form School on Mott

Tuesday, October 12th, 2010

This weekend was filled with events. One, which is a campaign by Redu (a Bing/Microsoft education reform project) was held at the Old St. Patrick’s Cathedral School on Mott St. I actually didn’t know that school wasn’t even functional anymore. I had always been curious about the interior of the place, so this was my chance to check it out.

Skully! (Or “Skelly” as I remember it.)

Michel Gondry’s “Brain Wave Machine” When I first saw this, I thought – “OK, who made this ITP-looking hack?” I think the price tag was around $4000 or $7000 – or something like that.
