Techerous

My name is Bill, I am a recent graduate in Information Sciences and Technology from Penn State University and this is a place for me to post or give my 2 cents on the fascinating world of technology. I am now working for a pretty big technology related company whose name I will leave out just to avoid any possible complications, however far-fetched them happening may be. Music gets included from time to time as well.

New Jersey Allows Voting By Email And Fax For Hurricane Victims

This is the situation I might be facing on Tuesday so I thought I would pass on the word.  If you are in an area that still hasn’t been cleaned up or your polling station is still out of power be aware of this.  We live in an age where workarounds in the face of disaster can be created, use them, don’t let a fallen tree prevent you from voting.

"“People whose friends post some (or a lot of) political content on social networking sites are much more likely to say that they have changed their mind about a political issue or become more involved with a political issue after reading/discussing them on a social network (compared with people whose friends don’t post much political content),” Aaron Smith, a senior researcher at Pew, told me Tuesday via email."

#waywire, Cory Booker’s Personalized News Startup, Uses Video To Give Youth A Voice

As big of a fan as I am of Cory Booker and his tendency to actually DO things, I really don’t see this taking off, much less changing anything.  The only “millenials” it would appeal to already have their resources and just because the reporters are in that age group it doesn’t make them any less biased than the current media.  This basically combining youtube and rss feeds in terms of delivery, really not the revolutionary idea journalism needs on the internet.
