5: The Closet Narcissist

April 28, 2014 at 3:00PM • 1 hour 11 minutes • Wiki Entry

In this week’s meeting, Jason DeFillippo of Grumpy Old Geeks shares his experience riding the train cross-country, how we expect too much when traveling with electronics, that people in urban centers are spoiled by their broadband access versus those living in rural America, and how our plight to make the world bigger through technology hinders those who have chosen a more simpler life.

In addition, we discuss how the prime impetus of taking a photo now has changed from saving to sharing, why technophiles prefer novelty over usefulness and open options over defined steps, how we're often stuck in "there's got to be a better way" mode, and whether or not there's a limit to the amount of technology one person can absorb.

It concludes with Jason completing step ten by admitting his content creation is purely a narcissistic endeavor and like everyone else, is looking for his fifteen minutes of fame.
