CATS2010 Online Conference • April 2010
How do we deal with the never ending onslaught of new technologies, resources, and media? How can we face this brave new world without a sense of dread? Is there an app for that? "Keeping up" is a myth, and the way of dealing with this is creating, sustaining, and being in your extended networks of friends, colleagues, and even people you don't know. Likewise, one cannot readily assess the value of new technology from the outside "looking in." This presentation will lead you through a range of examples of ways to practice more "being there-ness" so you can face the technology fire hose with a child-like sense of wonder.
