The Technology Umbilical Chord – How 16yr old girls use technology

I got a 16yr old girl from a nearby school to talk me through how she uses technology on a daily basis…She seriously has an umbilical chord to her friends, she cant breathe without constant contact and it’s scary how savvy she is… Enjoy

MY DAY…by Emma, 16
Ahhh early morning wake up my mobile alarm woke me up, I hate that stupid default tone, I’ve got 15mins to get to the train station. Heading out the door I put my ipod in and select the ‘on the run’ playlist, it gets me moving quickly! Damn ipods out of battery, plug my headphones into my hiptop i’ve got about 70 songs on it, should be enough to get me to school. Just in time for the train, oh my god there’s that boy i’ve got to text Sarah and tell her all about it. Train trips are so boring, sign into msn on my hiptop and see who’s online. No one worth talking to is online so i’m going to check out my myspace, yay 🙂 3 new comments! Just got off the train hhahaha the funniest poster in the tunnel, take a photo with my hiptop and send it to my mates. Damn at school got to hand in all electronics. They make me, the other kids can keep theirs 😦

Finished school, Finally!
Put in my ipod and run to get the early train. On the train I call Lee and find out how the auditions went, then get on my hiptop and use my phone internet to finish off my homework. At I home I get on the computer and download a list of songs from limewire and itunes. I check my email, myspace, facebook, bebo and sign into msn and yahoo messenger. I use my webcam to chat to my cousin overseas and put my itunes on and turn vol up to 100%. Before i go to bed i put dates into my hiptop calendar and set my phone alarm for 6am. Over and out.

  1. technology has seamlessly and successfully integrated its entire self into most of our lives, especially the youth generation. It has created not only a new way of living, but a new standard as well. Social networks allow immediate AND constant contact to our friends and the rest of the world and a lot of people have become accustomed to that. Like i just said in my newest post on my blog, the result is one two things: we love it, or have become so dependent on it that we just can’t do without

    great post, interesting!
