My apologies for being away for awhile. Sometimes life gets in the way, or maybe it is that life happens. Regardless, I’m back with news and a few posts.
News: As of January 2, 2007, I will be serving in a new capacity as the Emerging Technology Manager here at the Public Library of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County. I still intend to maintain my enthusiasm and commitment to several youth oriented projects (Eye4You Alliance Second Life Project and several long term initiatives here at ImaginOn) but will also be working with and continuing to develop adult oriented computer and technology oriented programs, experiences, etc. at PLCMC’s Virtual Village and throughout.
I still intend to maintain this blog, for we will also be moving it to its own domain soon. We might adjust the idealistic purpose of the blog’s direction a bit, but will still include youth oriented technology news and items of interest. Youth Tech should be more about the youthful enthusiasm for technology that folks have. It just so happens that our youth tend to have this built into them and through the years it is pushed out of them in various ways and maturation processes. This blog is about that attitude and how it is present in our worlds, but also how one might present and foster such an attitude of learning, change, youth and technology.
