Humans of New York: Captivating an Audience

A few years ago, my mom recommended a Facebook page to me, the first time she had ever done so. I knew it had to be important or she would have never mentioned it. What I came across was a series of some of the most emotional posts I have ever come across on social […]

And the Oscar goes to… Amazon?

There are many benefits associated with Amazon Prime, faster shipping being the popular reason why someone would subscribe to the service. However, as non-traditional viewing habits continue to increase, the best reason may actually be Prime Video. Amazon’s service is similar to that of Netflix, offering a large library of ready to stream movies and […]

#WedTech and the Wallet of the Digital Bride

Following up on some questions about wedding costs that I received in response to my class presentation, The Digital Bride, I decided to do some deeper digging. The most common question I received was asking whether or not using wedding planning websites, such as WeddingWire or The Knot, has decreased the overall cost of weddings. The average […]

VR Therapy

My experience with virtual reality is very limited.  My brother switched from the Apple IPhone to the Samsung Galaxy in early December.  He did not particularly like Samsung or dislike Apple.  He just switched because Samsung would provide a free VR headset if he chose to switch smart phones.  When I visited my brother forChristmas, […]

The Blog/Social Continuum: Boosting Readership

What does a blogger need to keep in mind when attempting to maintain a successful and gainful career as a blogger? What does it take these days to gain visibility as a new author, in this age when the market is flooded with content and there are so many ways to deliver it? These are […]

Weird Twitter

Ever since I was a young lad, I have always loved big cities. Some people hate big cities and think about everyone living on top of each other, the pollution, the smell of pee on a hot summer day, and the never ending noise. However, I like to focus on the different personalities and neighborhoods […]

Road trips in the digital age

Airline tickets are reasonably affordable but for some reason I still enjoy a road trip. Maybe it’s because I’m a little nostalgic of family trips we took when I was a kid or the sense of adventure in being able to stop off somewhere random and see something new. It’s one thing to see the […]

Drones and their uses

I have been a drone enthusiast for a couple of years now. It all started when I was taking summer classes at BC. I had to wait until my afternoon class and did not have much to do in the meantime. With time in my hands, I decided to scroll down the kickstarter website to […]

Memes: The Voice of the Generation?

“Cash me ousside, how bow dah?”. If this phrase looks like nothing but a poorly-spelled and incoherent blurb, then congratulations, you have either been living under a rock or have not logged on to the Internet over the past month. Or perhaps, the way you use the Internet is completely different from every one else […]

Not Everything is About You, Trump. Signed, the DoD

  The Department of Defense has been accused several times now of “subtweeting” President Trump. While I’m confident that many people have subtweeted Mr. President, accusing a government agency is, as a Pentagon spokesman put it, “ridiculous”. Before I get into this blog post, I want to put in a disclaimer that is article is not meant […]

Binge Watching is so in this Season

Netflix started the new trend of binge watching shows that we used to grow up with and they have even created their own original content. But now as they are getting more rights to content they are able to show whole new seasons of shows a few months after they hit the air. Netflix is […]

I Have Wedding Invitations and No Groom

Fair warning, this post is far less about my personal life but more of an introduction into the mind of someone who actually likes Pinterest. This hopes to serve as an educational piece for men (or women) who find this platform to be as confusing as fantasy football is to me. Pinterest’s mission is to help people discover […]

New iPhone Leaks Reveal Most Boring Release to Date

The Apple Kool-Aid There was a time in high school when I hadn’t drank the Apple Kool-Aid yet and still rocked my Android phone.  I liked being able to pick the phone I wanted based on features, and not just by whatever one manufacturer decided to implement that year.  I owned three droids over the […]

Digital Diplomacy

The first Twitter President is testing the rules of Social Media Diplomacy, but the world is shrinking and there are a lot of reasons to be optimistic about how countries, Governments, and their citizens will interact online in the future.

10 Critical Spring Break Hacks

For those of you who hate February, much like I do, partially because of the miserable 4:30PM-sunset-snow-hail-storm weather and partially because of the existence of Single Awareness Day, I have good news for you: the tragic month is almost over. Now I have even better news for you: March is upon us. Everyone knows what […]
