Have you ever thought about your cell phone etiquette? I have. A lot.
Does it control you?
Video is used in so many ways these days: Internet, broadcasting, archiving, home movies..... the list could go on and on. Come check out this one minute clip to explore how video is used at Carleton College.
Cell phones can be funny and whimsical. They can also be deadly and dangerous. As our society progresses, cell phones are carving out a niche with ever increasing intensity. As they become more and more important in everyday life, they seem to take on an identity of their own. The history of cell phones is at a tipping point, and I intend - in one minute and twenty seconds - to broaden your insight into this funny but dangerous piece of technology.
Facebook has quickly become one of the most popular sites on the Internet. But why? What are people doing on Facebook? An omniscient narrator explains...
Tommy Helgen gives you an inside look at the secret world of blogging here at Carleton. By using methods deemed "uneccessary" by most jounalists, Tommy gets to the bottom of the story and takes the viewer behind closed doors. You'll never look at blogging the same way again.
Do you have a camera built into your cellphone? Does it take videos? Can you access your computer and PDA through a bluetooth network? More likely than not, you can.
But do you? This short video attempts to understand why people pay for technologies that they generally don't use.
Carleton students talk about how they get their music. CDs vs. digital music. Filesharing. What’s filesharing? All in a one-minute video clip.
We take for granted that technology exists to make some aspect of our lives easier. The good people at the KRLX FM radio station based out of Carleton College were struggling with what to do with heavily produced audio pieces. Once they go over the airwaves, they practically vanish. KRLX station manager Cameron Nordholm discusses how the podcast revolution didn't endanger their radio paradigm, but rather it rescued it.
Music is constantly available online for easy download. Finding old or obscure tracks has become simple because of file-sharing and the iTunes store. So why would Carleton students still use vinyl?
While iPods are ubiquitous and easy, they really don't compare to the experience of vinyl. Virginia Pharr ('07) and I discuss what makes vinyl so awesome in this video podcast
To Friend or not to Friend? This videocast explores just how much thought goes into the online relationships of thefacebook.com.
Buy a new wireless supa-dupa multimedia notebook and it will make you smart, sexy and successful! You don’t believe me? Okay, maybe you are partly right…
But still a wireless laptop can improve your life! It’s the bling-bling of nowaday’s students. No need anymore to sit at home writing your paper or doing research for a project. No need to fight for a seat in the computer lab. Wireless gives you the freedom and independence to work wherever you want...or wherever there is a Hot-Spot.
Check out the video and see with your own eyes how the life of a student changes dramatically due to his movement from desktop to laptop. He got pimped by Wireless!
Two years back when I arrived at Carleton College as a bumbling frosh one of the first things I learned was to get Gnucleus, and use it. The program allows file sharing between people connected to the same network (ideal for a college environment), similar to iTunes except files are actually downloaded from peer-to-peer, not merely shared when both parties are online at the same time. However, a funny thing has happened: the number of Gnucleus users has dropped drastically, nearing the point of non-existence. Does anyone still "Gnuc"? Does anyone remember Gnucleus? Will it be forgotten from Carleton's collective memory as past users graduate, leaving behind Northfield, Minnesota? My short video documents the disappearance of Gnucleus through interviews with the common Carleton student.
I have a cell phone, it is virtually part of me. If I go somewhere without it I feel isolated, alone and terribly depressed. I hate my cell phone for what it does to me, but I love it for its convenience (one might say that 'I wish I could quit it'). Are my feelings unique ... maybe ... but, I know a bunch of other people have cell phones too. Here is what they have to say...
How do we get our news? Are the days of a Carleton filled with stacks of old newspapers over, replaced by a new money-saving, up-to-the-minute style of news via the Internet? And if these days are over, is this actually beneficial to Carleton students, faculty and staff? I talked to a member of the faculty, Professor of Political Science Steven Schier, and student Karina Hill to get the scoop.
The age of iPod is here. The iPod has become the second most widespread personal gadget, after the cell phone. Here I take a quick look at Carleton College to find out how the iPod has become integrated into the lives of the students.
Popular games such as Madden and Halo have become a staple of college life. Some see them merely as a recreational activity, but do they have a negative effect on academics?
Xbox 360 is now available (well, kind of), and Playstation 3 is on its way. But what about those of us who wish they were still making games for the NES?
