The Internet Ruined My Life (TV series from SyFy Channel)
The Internet Ruined My Life exposes the unexpected perils of living in a social media obsessed world.
Each half-hour explores what happens to a person when a single tweet, post, or status update backfires and spirals out of control.
Told through first person accounts, this series takes stories ripped-from-the-headlines and reveals how people just like you and me inadvertently ruin their lives in one key stroke.

Black Mirror
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Mirror
Black Mirror
Excellent TV series to use for discussion with "OLDER" students or adults on some of the future social consequences of technology .... fictional series.
Each episode is free standing ... there is no joining story line across the episodes .. even the actors are different in each episode.
Black Mirror is a British television anthology series ....
"each episode has a different cast, a different setting, even a different reality. But they're all about the way we live now – and the way we might be living in 10 minutes' time if we're clumsy."
"If technology is a drug – and it does feel like a drug – then what, precisely, are the side effects?"

Buy it in a store, laser-scan it at home, upload it to the web, print it anywhere. 3D printing is poised for the mainstream, but what happens when one person’s finely hand-crafted designs can be pirated and reproduced by anyone?
Will 3D-printing-piracy social networks arise? And how will manufacturers lobby to stop them?

Reality (data) mining
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reality_mining
Reality (data) mining
Reality mining is the collection and analysis of machine-sensed environmental data pertaining to human social behavior, with the goal of identifying predictable patterns of behavior. It was declared to be one of the "10 technologies most likely to change the way we live" by Technology Review Magazine.
e.g collecting data for for smart phone and using it for social engineering ... to make your life .. easier and more healthy.
Reality mining studies human interactions based on the usage of wireless devices such as mobile phones and GPS systems providing a more accurate picture of what people do, where they go, and with whom they communicate with rather than from more subjective sources such as a person's own account.
Reality mining is one aspect of digital footprint analysis.

Should Mobile Phone cases be allowed in schools?
http://www.yellowjacketcase.com/
The debate in many schools is still going on regarding students bringing their mobile phones into school for teaching and learning.
I wonder how many schools have included smart phone cases in their policies
What stirred me to mention this in particular is the "Yellow Jacket case stun gun in your favorite color."
I've even been informed there is an iPhone case that delivers pepper spray ... what next?

World's First Entirely 3D-Printed Gun
http://onforb.es/ZuDxZs
World's First Entirely 3D-Printed Gun
All sixteen pieces of the Liberator prototype were printed in ABS plastic with a Dimension SST printer from 3D printing company Stratasys, with the exception of a single nail that’s used as a firing pin. The gun is designed to fire standard handgun rounds, using interchangeable barrels for different calibers of ammunition.
Technically, Defense Distributed’s gun has one other non-printed component: the group added a six ounce chunk of steel into the body to make it detectable by metal detectors in order to comply with the Undetectable Firearms Act. In March, the group also obtained a federal firearms license, making it a legal gun manufacturer.

http://www.econsumer.gov
In April of 2001, responding to the challenges of multinational Internet fraud, and working to enhance consumer protection and consumer confidence in e-commerce, 13 countries unveiled econsumer.gov, a joint effort to gather and share cross-border e-commerce complaints.
Today, consumer protection agencies in 28 countries participate in this initiative.
The project has two components: a multilingual public website, and a government, password-protected website. The public site allows consumers to lodge cross-border complaints, and to try to resolve their complaints through means other than formal legal action.

Meme Memes
http://thedailymeme.com/what-is-a-meme/
What is a Meme
The term and concept of meme is from the 1976 book by Richard Dawkins, The Selfish Gene.
Though Dawkins defined the meme as “a unit of cultural transmission, or a unit of imitation,” memeticists vary in their definitions of meme. The lack of a consistent, rigorous definition of what precisely a meme is remains one of the principal criticisms leveled at memetics, the study of memes.
By some other definitions memes are viral and propagate around sometimes mutating as they propagate. Someone proposed something along the lines of some blog posts are viral, they write about something they see on one blog and the next person does the same sometimes their interpretation varies slightly changing the story

Growing Up Online

Growing Up Online
In Growing Up Online, FRONTLINE (pbs) takes viewers inside the very public private worlds that kids are creating online, raising important questions about how the Internet is transforming childhood.
"The Internet and the digital world was something that belonged to adults, and now it's something that really is the province of teenagers, " says C.J. Pascoe, a postdoctoral scholar with the University of California, Berkeley's Digital Youth Research project. At school, teachers are trying to figure out how to reach a generation that no longer reads books or newspapers.
"We can't possibly expect the learner of today to be engrossed by someone who speaks in a monotone voice with a piece of chalk in their hand," one school principal says. "You have a generation faced with a society with fundamentally different properties, thanks to the Internet," says Danah Boyd, a fellow at Harvard's Berkman Center for Internet & Society.
"It's a question for us of how we teach ourselves and our children to live in a society where these properties are fundamentally a way of life. This is public life today."

Technology and Inequality
http://www.sciencenetlinks.com/lessons.php?BenchmarkID=3&DocID=348
Technology and Inequality
Purpose : To help students become more familiar with different types of technology, and to understand that not all people have the same access to technology.
In this lesson, students study briefly the history, evolution, and social benefits of the automobile (as a general model for the kinds of technologies that were once enjoyed only by those who could afford them). Though most technologies today are enjoyed by more and more people, students will weigh the reasons why technologies like the automobile, computers, cell phones, and others are not accessed or used equally by all groups of society.
They will recognize that issues like high cost, special training, and limited need contribute to these discrepancies.
