The Anti-Connectivist?

This was recorded last June, but it is new to me. There are actually three separate videos of the same event, along with some materials this “crazy lady” was handing out.

At the local AT&T Store in Santa Barbara this crazy lady came up to us and described a conspiracy that the iPhone is going to destroy our minds.

Part 2, Part 3.

It is a bit strange to watch this as there was something a bit too familiar. In my mind, I edited out the fantastical stories of aliens and conspiracy theories, and somehow I was reminded of a couple of teachers I have worked with over the years. I believe that critique is a fundamental piece when using/adopting any technology. However, critique combined with ignorance can lead to unhealthy paranoia.
