Though it should be all of the above.
Nope – the future, by definition, is yet to come. Judging by Stanley Kubrick’s forecast of 2001 there’s no telling where we’ll be or if we’ll stay connected in the future, and that’s ultimately what Future Camp with my HumberPR pals was all about. How to stay connected.
So how will we stay connected? How will I stay connected? Will we fail? Will I ever get internet at home again? Something valuable I learned from Kalene Morgan in Writing Lab this semester was the Power of Three. Read further for my three vows of Future Camp.
Vow #1 – Face the Book
To think that I was actually starting to believe that Facebook was facing its downfall before I walked into Michael Cayley’s social media class… I can agree with Ben that I’ve stopped ignoring events and group messages for months now. There’s no doubt that when it comes to organizing, showcasing or the occasional creeping, Facebook continues to reign supreme. I vow to keep my Facebook profile up-to-date and will never ignore event invites again.
Vow #2 – Tweet the Beat
Just like Facebook, my opinion on Twitter has swayed a little since we began this course a mere four months ago. We’ve had guest speakers who swear by it and others who are not convinced, but my confidence in the microblogging sphere is on the rise. I think using the #YnotW hashtag for HumberPR to organize Why Not Wednesday meet-ups will prove to be successful and I plan to keep tweeting @ Humber hombres for time to come.
Vow #3 – Think Outside the Inbox
But not too far. I think we can all agree that e-mail continues to hold gold for online communication. I’ve been using it since I was 12, and based on past successes and failures on organizing events, e-mail will undoubtedly aid our HumberPR community in staying connected. E-mail with pride, my friends.
