Documentary Short: Social Media

This documentary film was made for the term project of my technology and culture course in the fall of 2010. A teammate and I came up the interview questions, and I conducted all the interviews, edited the videos.Technology and Addiction, these two words go nearly hand-in-hand in the mainstream media of today with technology, internet-based services in particular, being attacked constantly and presented to the public as something to fear losing yourself to. But is it truly an addiction? Is it truly an ever-encroaching plague on society? Or has it become something more than that, a need? People are, in a big way, transitioning towards more online interactions over face-to-face interactions. Is this truly something that must be stopped, or is it just an evolutionary replacement? These are the kinds of questions we want to tackle with our forthcoming documentary.
