Inactive Blog Watch: Families & Technology seems to be alive again
REVIEWED BY: Ann Currie
MY RECOMMENDATION: The blog had no posts from December until March, but now the author seems to have picked it up again.
AMAZON SUBSCRIPTION LINK: Families and Technology
WEB ADDRESS: http://www.softwaretime.com/wp/
BLOG DESCRIPTION: Have you ever screamed "Enough!" after becoming overwhelmed with information overload or the constant buzzing of devices? Are you a parent who is tired of trying to pry the kids off of their screens to go play outside for a rare change? Or have you found that all of the connectivity that we have improves your family's life, whether it be video conferencing the grandparents in or helping run the family smoothly.
We like to explore the trends in where technology, as it affects people of all ages and especially from the family angle. How do you manage technology? How do you use it to do things that pull your family together, or open avenues for doing things that can't be done without technology?
MY REVIEW: Although the blog was moribund for a while, it seems to be alive again now, with two posts in March. Check it out on the web first before deciding if you want to suscribe.
