Thread Title:
but are you a member of the "Smart Mob Generation"?
Thread Description:

Funny but cool wiki post threadlinked above asking if you're a member of the "smart mob generation".

In brief:

  1. Do you wear a computer?
  2. Do you text?
  3. Are you wacky when you're not wified?
  4. Have you have turned some of your “remembering” over to a technology object?
  5. Do you participate in online reputation systems?

This makes me feel a bit old, my wife even discovered my fist grey hairs a few weeks back and i bloody hate SMS heh... However, it's a good point i think. Just how connected are you?

Personally im more than a little uncomfortable if i have to spend any more than about 3hrs from a connection. I regularly eat dinner whilst posting/reading and if i get up in the night i cant help but check what's going on - sad but true...

No

No

No, but will be by this time next year

> 4. Have you have turned some of your “remembering” over to a technology object?

I've had my server emailing me to-do list items for well over a year now. Works great! Donorware script, too (search on RemindMe)

> 5. Do you participate in online reputation systems?

Only for mischief.

Definitely not "smart mob"

1. Certainly not: no cellphone (they're evil), no Blackberry (they're expensive), no PDA (they're naff)

2. Seriously, how can anyone communicate this way?

3. No, and the wife doesn't whack me either

4. I signed my life story over to Immigration Canada a few years back, does that count? I also keep my domain name list in a Gnumeric file

5. They don't go low enough to include me

WIki

RC gave me a very good tip over at cre8 a month or two back about wikis as personal workspace - i never did get to try out the nice scripts you gave me, sorry rc...

But apparently they're great for todo lists and working efficiency in general..

>immigration

OMG, dont get me started down that road! trying being a non dane in denmark... sheesh!

Kinda ...

>Do you wear a computer?
Does mobile + pda count? Indispensable for non-work-related reasons.
>Do you text?
Nup!
>Are you wacky when you're not wified?
Um, no more than usual. ;)
>Have you have turned some of your “remembering” over to a technology object?
Yep! Or a least I think I have, can't remember, let me check ...
>Do you participate in online reputation systems?
Nup! Other peoples reputations are none of my business.

I don't do any of the 5 thing

I don't do any of the 5 things listed either, but I can't stand being away from my computer for long either. Not really sure why though. I feel like I could get an important email, or what if my sites go down, or I miss some important news. But the reality is that the world wouldn't end if I was away from it for some time. I guess I'm just addicted.
