1. Mac or PC?

PC. I'm in IT and with Windows' huge majority of the market, the money is in PCs. For now.

2. How plugged in are you and why?

Very. I make my living in technology. At home, we have three desktops, 2 iPads, 2 laptops, at least 7 iPods and 5 smart phones.

3. What would do if you were completely unplugged for a month?

I would go stark raving mad. My cell has been nicknamed my "pacifier".

4. Low Self esteem issues aside, if a pic of you turned up on a site like TapThatGuy, Hot or Not or People of Walmart, how would you react?

I don't care. I dealt with pictures from my past already so the tough stuff is done.

5. FaceBook is....

Despite the bad mouthing that highly adopted technologies always seem to elicit, Facebook has made reconnecting and maintaining relationships much easier. In the past, back in the "Stone Age", we had to rely on letters and phone calls to keep our circle of friends, family and acquaintances from drifting apart. Many of us are far from home, where were raised, and Facebook has provided an easy avenue for daily exchanges. Personally, I really like it for those uses.

6. List at least 5 of the social Apps you are on:

Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Tumblr, Growlr, Scruff

BONUS
What question did you think of that could have been asked?

How could a social app be improved?
What function/feature is useless or annoying?
Have you ever stalked/been stalked by someone online?

Social Media is everywhere and linked to everything - blogs, FaceBook, Twitter, iTunes, Apps for: hooking up, shopping, banking, photo albums, music, and so much more. How plugged are you and how do you feel about it???

1. Mac or PC? I’m a Mac (home and iPhone) and a PC (work). Actually like both for different reasons. I am so used to using a PC that it is almost second nature to me. The design and versatility of a Mac is hard to beat.

2. How plugged in are you and why? I would consider myself pretty well plugged in but in a pretty sort practical way. I am all about technology making my life easier and not chasing the newest app or standing in line for a new device. Most of the apps I use are useful in helping me navigate my world as opposed to providing entertainment.

3. What would do if you were completely unplugged for a month? I’d love it. I am far too dependent on my iPhone and chasing emails from work. And ok, suggestive texts from friends. That I would miss. A lot.

4. Low Self esteem issues aside, if a pic of you turned up on a site like TapThatGuy, Hot or Not or People of Walmart, how would you react? Well, let’s see, it is highly unlikely I would ever appear on TapThatGuy and I’ve never been to the other sites mentioned, but if I were, I’d laugh it off.

5. FaceBook is....awesome. I love it. As much as I hate updating it, I do find it useful to keep people in the loop and to stay on top of things myself. I don’t like overly personal items – like a friend who recently announced that his wife miscarried on fb. That to me is like saying, “I have so many people I need to inform of this, I can’t possibly decide who to contact first.” I have to say that I am constantly amazed when someone remarks on what I post on facebook, yet they never leave a comment.

6. List at least 5 of the social Apps you are on:
Telenav – best alternative to a GPS system and has voice-activated directions
RunKeeper – best overall fitness app out there
Instagram – I know, I know, but I like it.
LinkedIn – so I can pretend I really give a shit about business
Starbucks – I have a small caffeine addiction. Very small.
Fox Sports – Cause ESPN is annoying.

BONUS
What question did you think of that could have been asked? How often do you jerk off to Tumblr? Ummm, that would be a ton.

Thanks Sean! Loki
