Just a few years ago who would have thought that, just in order to keep up with life, everyone would need a smartphone, 24/7 access to their emails and a constant hook into their favourite social media networks. ...more

The "It's All About Me" Generation

I can't take credit for that phrase...my friend Mel used that when I was venting the other night.  Tuesday night was on my way to teach a class for graduate students about suturing.  The class was held in the evening, but its a university so there are undergrads milling all around of course.  I went to school at this university, so I'm familiar with it....more

The Teen Years: Parenting in the Digital Age

I've said it before, and I will say it again.   I am SO glad there was no such thing as Facebook or all the other various social media sites when I was growing up. Teenagehood is HARD, but I can't even imagine what it's like growing up with the constant push to over share.  Not to mention the cell phones to snap a picture and document whatever shenanigans are being performed right then. ...more

Love Technology - It is an Organizational Marvel

Years ago I kept a day planner. One of those fancy loose-leaf books with a calendar, to do list, planning sheets and a section for contacts. I liked my day planner. Each morning I would review my calendar and to do list to see what was going on that day. Each afternoon I would carefully move items from one day to another according to the day's events. At the end of each year, I travelled to the planning store and looked at the planning and calendar pages and carefully chose the appropriate new set of paper pages for the new year....more
