Facebook birthdays: taking the easy way out

Katie Hinderer | 22 October 2010
Over a month ago, I celebrated my birthday. It’s always been a big deal in my family and with friends. And now with the advent of Facebook I love the event even more.

Texting to save lives

Katie Hinderer | 25 January 2010
We read and hear enough about the disastrous effect of text messaging. Of course there are those that text and drive (I’ll admit to being guilty of this). There are those that text during class and at the dinner table. And let’s not forget the astronomical cell phone bill everyone gets hit with at least once thanks to prolific texts by yourself or your children.

Do you tweet?

Katie Hinderer | 19 January 2010
Twitter was declared the most popular word in the English language for 2009, according to the Global Language Monitor. If you haven’t heard of this social networking and microblogging site by now, you are probably living under a rock in the middle of the Sahara Desert.
