>"The Internet Is My Religion"

>I think this is an important video, telling the story about how one man’s faith in God is replaced (to some extent) by the internet.  It’s where religion becomes the interconnectedness of separate individuals working for good.  There are a lot of very Christian themes that come through this talk and I think it’s an important video to watch.

It might make you tear up.

It might make you want to tell him all about Jesus.

It might make you wonder where the church is in the story.

It might help you see technology in a new way.

You might just agree with everything he says.

(Also, know that you might be asked to offer up an email address in order to watch more than about five minutes of it.)

>What Song Are You Listening To? — Fascinating

>iPod Shuffle Earphones                                       Image via WikipediaSo, a guy with a camera and a microphone goes around the streets of New York City, asking anyone and everyone with headphones on “What song are you listening to?”  And the people share what it is that they are listening to.  I found this fascinating, not because there was a lot of mainstream pop, which there was.  I’d expect that.  Not because the music selections were mostly new artists.  I’d expect that when considering the ages of folks I see walking around with headphones in.  I found it fascinating because there is all this music going on all around us, with people walking to different beats styles and in their own little musical worlds, oblivious to the sounds coming from around them.  I found it fascinating because I think it’s indicative of how we segregate ourselves off from the rest of our communities.  We put our headphones on and, in a sense, we…are…alone.

Enjoy…
