Ok so I’ve got five finals and I’m sure many of you do as well. I hope everyone studies and doesn’t spend too much time on the internet. Speaking of spending time on the internet, I was stumbling around on Wikipedia the other day and came across an article about the Online Disinhibition Effect
. Basically, it shows how several factors can cause a human being to have lower inhibitions while communicating on the internet. In other words, they do things online that they wouldn’t normally do in real life. It was interesting, and with a generation that spends so much time on the internet it may show where our psychological path is leading to. Do you think that Nerdfighters are more/less affected than others by this? About the same? With us generally being on the internet, what does that say about our behavior? Can it affect our lives offline? Just a few thoughts I thought you would find interesting.
Anyways, it’s almost time for me to go to work and so onto the forums!
It seems we have a Nerdfighter here that feels out of place and a bit concerned about the recent developments
about hank’s controversial twittering. Let’s show that Nerdfighters are made of awesome, and can tolerate anything… even intolerance? I know it’s difficult to deal with racism or other kinds of prejudice, but the more we talk the more we get done.
On a lighter note, a Nerdfighter has thrown down the gauntlet on Star Wars Trivia
. All you Star Wars fans out there should head in and show him what you’re made of!
Next, we have a Nerdfighter trying to Decrease Wroldsuck through youtube
! Let’s see some feedback!
That’s all I have time for today! Remember to look to the skies for red balloons, and call that number when you see one!! Study hard, and remember to keep a healthy level of human understanding both on and offline.
