Final Catfish

I probably wouldn't of been able to handle the whole situation that Nev went through. All those lies that she said and her trying to tell him the truth and she still lied about it, I just would of been pissed. Nev handled it too kindly I think because he just wasted like what 9 months of his life on this girl and thats what happened. I guess hes too nice of a guy to be mad about something like that but whatever.  Something about Vince makes me feel like he doesn't know what was all going on but he sounded like he tried to know what was going on but really didn't. This movie was deffinetely a weird one because I think your not going to get the truth out of an 8 year old and she didn't know what was going on either, it kind of creeps me out that she would actually take the time to create a "community" of random facebook users and try and play it off like it was actually real. It's good that she ended up deleting all those account and just made one of herself so I guess that's legit. I ended up just liking the end of the movie though, and how it ended with how there's hope for everyone, and that there life's can just continue on the way they were. They know they'll never forget what happened but i'm guessing all of those people got a lot of attention after the movie was made so that's a good thing. Overall pretty good film/documentary.

This movie seems like it's pretty good so far. I think it's weird with the camera and how the whole movie's shot but for a Documentary I guess it works out fine. Nev seems like a nice guy, and how he tells us about Abby is pretty cool. Someone said "why doesn't he just skype her?" but i'm pretty sure Skype wasn't around in 2008 but I don't know. This movie looks good so far but we'll see how it pans out.

Position Paper

Mobile technologies have become a normal part of everyday life. More people now have cell phones than landline phones, within the United States. In fact, so many people have got rid of their landline services in favor of having only cell phones that a term has emerged to describe this action is called “cutting the cord.” The cell phone phenomenon is not limited to adults. In fact, it is not uncommon to see high school and middle school students with their own cell phones. When walking through a department store, or strolling down a crowded city street, or taking a ride on public transportation, it is completely common to hear others having cell phone conversations.  In a survey approximately 17 percent of students identified that they spent at least three hours per day on a mobile phone. The majority of student’s indicated that they sent and/or received 20 text messages per day. Only five percent of student’s sent or received over 60 texts per day. Of the students that sent and received text messages 29 percent used text short cuts when completing school work. Over 50 percent re-ported that having a mobile phone in the class-room or a ringing cell phone in class did not distract them from their studies. Over 73 percent of students made no excuse to leave the classroom to answer their phone, while 22 percent apologized for causing inconvenience in the classroom. One-third of students indicated they would make a call from their mobile phone during class. Only five to ten years ago it would have been considered taboo to take phone calls during a lunch or dinner with friends. Now, if a cell phone rings, it is fully expected that the call or text will be answered. That there is why mobile technology is changing our society and I believe it won’t be stopping anytime soon.

The thing I like about Blogging is that it's just easy to do. You log onto your computer, go to your blog, and start writing, about whatever you want for others to see. The bad thing about blogging is that pretty much anyone can see what you put on your blog. This, I have heard could lose you your job, your respect towards others and so on. But that is only if you really blog about everything you do in your life. Else I believe blogging is the next big thing in the future, if not already. Just my opinion on Blogging!
