Find Your Voice

Katrina’s colorful youth and journey led her through 24 schools prior to graduating high school. She didn’t learn to read until the 4th grade. Mrs. Osterberg, a teacher that encouraged better results, took initiative and changed a life. Katrina’s story is one about finding her voice and encouraging others to use today’s technology as a global platform to inspire others and take a stance on issues that matter.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

Michael Wesch‘s thought provoking video illustrates how we collectively are teaching “the machine” through each ‘like’, search, click, check-in, etc… Perhaps we are grooming our future digital assistants based on our personal web trends and patterns. Our digital use creates a databased-backed web. Concern shifts to a right to privacy. Does your web activity exempt you to this right? Where do you draw a line in the sand?

Thank you Dr. Edmiston for your instruction and enlightenment in Emerging Media and the Marketplace.  I would not have seen this video otherwise.
