“Distance”

I am really excited about all of the creativity we are going to be able to explore with our “Black Mirror” episodes.  I know with the group we have, we are going to have quite a few exciting possible stories to go over with each other in class.  I think we could all use a […]

“Out of Control”

I’ve always been sort of interested in accounts and stories of doppelgangers. They’re sometimes tied to episodes of out of body experiences as well, and I’ve sort of experienced both. I remember once as a kid, I was maybe around 10 years old, I realized I was looking down on myself laying in bed up […]

“When You Can Never Leave Your WhatsApp or Facebook Group”

“Do you agree to the Terms of Service?” I took a cursory look at the Terms of Service:1.) Use respectful language.2.) Be respectful of others.3.) No profanity. Blah, blah, blah. I quickly clicked, Accept. I wanted to be part of a social community during a period of isolation (quarantine, shelter-in-place, and stay-at-home). I wanted to […]

“Hey Google Can You Help Me Find My Soulmate?!

A few months ago before this pandemic hit us I was visiting my older brother and nephew in Maryland. I was with my Mother one day and we were in the living room. My brother randomly asked Google a question about traffic and the weather. We didn’t realize until we heard it talking back to […]

Tracked Down

I see my story unfolding already. Dr. Seelig was actually the first human to inject the RFID chips into his body. He is actually from New Jersey, so that makes it a little more close to home. He will be gunned down by his mistress lover, as she knows that the chips hold all of […]

Detoxifying My Digital Soul

It has been awhile since I’ve posted. In a sense, while my internet was down at my home, I owe some thanks to Verizon Fios for giving me some detox time from the screen. The data detox kit has a lot of useful information in it. I took particular interest in the phone detox information. […]

Night_Mar: Story Treatment

I’ve visited the insomniac theater more than I care to admit. The small, creeping hours of the night have left me restless and confused. It is such a strange time to be awake…the middle of the night. When I had an alarm clock with ambulance-red digital numbers, I used to often stare at the moving […]

Looking closely into the Net Mirror

This week we had a great (virtual) class and I can feel the intellectual and creative energy that you all are contributing. I can’t believe we are nearing the end of the semester, and despite the fact that this has been an extraordinarily difficult time, I am starting to realize how much I will miss […]

Data Detox: “Don’t Let Them In, Don’t Let Them See”

The Data Detox Kit truly encapsulates what it is that we have been talking about all semester long.  When I reflect on the meaning of this class, I interpret it as a look into ways where we can reduce our online footprint and be more present in our everyday lives.  I am actually somewhat familiar […]
