Content Marketing as Both an Art and a Science | Social Media Information Updates | Scoop.it

On the great disconnect.  Burnout at 26 years old leads to paid opportunity to disconnect from the Internet and communicate about 'life' through some other sensory media. Watch this space for further opportunties for therapists, thespians and start-ups waiting to profit on the withdrawal pains of the multitudes.  

 

When I was 26, I was burnt out from waiting for trains on cold platform stations; and late aeroplanes in club lounges in the company of alcholics in dark suits.  We didn't have the social web to moan about that to anyone.  So I guess we were better off then.  Right.

Vanessa Camilleri's comment, May 8, 2013 4:31 AM
I think burnout is relative to the life you live... I think that burnout results from excessive behavior. A person I know started running - maybe because she started when she had reached the 36 target, or maybe because she felt good, she started overdoing it - so much so, that her 'burnout' has had to be imposed after injuries that need medical intervention. She had to stop because she had excessively overdone it. The same can apply to work, to computer use and online presence and basically in every other field. Sometimes it is so easy for us to lose track of ourselves and because the virtual world makes it all the easier, we tend to forget that we need to learn survival skills for our 'Net-selves' in addition to skills our physical selves

Wake up call or viral entertainment? A taster of the great disconnect between old institutions and mobile power.  I think this video raises many issues. From the Foucault-style public spectacle of 'naming and shaming'. to the lack of digital literacies, to mobile devices as tools for smart mobs (Rheingold-style), to 20th century education power systems being forced on a generation brought up on web reality shows, and without much fear of retribution. And that's just the tip of the iceberg...
