“We are the generation of nostalgia. We grew up in the age of transition. From hand-written letters to electronic mails. From film to digital. We were fascinated by new things, neglecting the way we spend our afternoons. Cupcakes and tea. Play-Doh and Polly Pockets. Young and naive. Technology completely changed the way we waited and we grew up too fast. The simple things in life seems more meaningful now. We grew up in the age of transition and have become the generation of nostalgia (original blog post here).”
My name is Brandon, and I suffer from #instacurity
I stumbled upon this fake (although it should be real) PSA tonight. We talk a lot in this class about the issues surrounding social media, and these guys sum it up really well. They even started an entire website and tumblr blog to bring awareness to the problem of instacurity I caught myself laughing at this video because I myself have fallen into its trap. One of the posts on their blog was the quote at the top of the post. I’m not trying to excuse my generations behavior, but I do find the quote to be the most simplistic explanation as to why my generation became so infatuated with social media so quickly. Take a look at the video embedded below, and even the website linked in the logo above. I’m curious to hear what you think!
