A Handful of Writing Truths

A Handful of Writing Truths | inspire |
A meme is making its way around the internet this week—14 writers give their advice, written on their hands. It made me think about the different ways we approach our writing, and how we all come to truths of our own over time.

In general, I think most of our studnets do not write enough to become fluid thinkers and stortellers. I love writer's workshop because it gives students some serious committed time to write and write and write.

I wish I was as successful as Jon Morrow. As talented as Stanford Smith (Pushing Social) - as enigmatic as Derek Halphern (Social Triggers).

The Loneliness of Today's Mobile Culture |

The Loneliness of Today's Mobile Culture | | inspire |

Ever feel like an invisible stranger among friends who are staring intently into their phones? Or perhaps you're the one doing the staring. These feelings are common in today's ultra-connected world.


To illustrate the point, My Science Academy put together a two-minute video called "I Forgot My Phone." In the video, a young woman makes her way through the day surrounded by people on their phones.


Three years ago, I wrote about the dangers of this emerging culture of self-imposed solitary confinement when visiting the UCLA campus and observing students there. My article, The Lonely Life of an iPhone Addict, cites a Stanford study that found one out of four students describes the iPhone as "dangerously alluring."


It seems we've reached a saturation point where "alluring" for the few has become an "addiction" for the many. Soon it will be for the masses, with more than a billion new smartphones expected to ship just for business use over the next three years, according to an IDC report.


The sad part about the "I Forgot My Phone" video is that almost everyone can relate to being both the young woman and her friends. It's an odd feeling to be in a company of friends or with your significant other in a social setting yet still feel utterly alone. It's also an odd feeling to go 30 minutes without checking your iPhone.
