InfoGraphic: The History Of ONLINE Social Networking

Whenever I’m asked to give a brief history of social networking or social media, I start by letting the audience know that these activities and tools aren’t a new phenomena that developed with the launches of sites like MySpace, Facebook, and Twitter. In fact, the history of social media goes back to humans gathering around campfires and sharing stories or painting history on cave walls. Any activities where humans share stories and influence others can pretty much be considered social networking and the tools they used (words, paint, etc..) were their social media. Smoke signals, tribal drums, backyard barbecues….all social networking that used different types of social media.

The history of online or digital social media is obviously a more recent occurrence, which began as we determined that computers could be used to connect people.  Below is in an interesting infographic from the detailing some of the major events in online social media. While I like many of the key events and dates that they have chosen, I do think they missed a major set of milestones by skipping from 1978 to 1994 without even mentioning the CompuServe, AOL, and Prodigy wars. These three online services, each offering group discussions, played a critical role in bringing affordable Internet service to the homes of Americans and really brought online conversations to the mainstream.

Obviously, a comprehensive history would be impossible in a single infographic, and I commend the authors for compiling the content, but I do think this oversight was a pretty big one.

See any other major gaps? I’d be interested to hear thoughts and comments on how we could improve this timeline to be more comprehensive.

The Mountain from Terje Sorgjerd on Vimeo.
This was filmed between 4th and 11th April 2011. I had the pleasure of visiting El Teide.
Spain´s highest mountain @(3718m) is one of the best places in the world to photograph the stars and is also the location of Teide Observatories, considered to be one of the world´s best observatories.
The goal was to capture the beautiful Milky Way galaxy along with one of the most amazing mountains I know El Teide. I have to say this was one of the most exhausting trips I have done. There was a lot of hiking at high altitudes and probably less than 10 hours of sleep in total for the whole week. Having been here 10-11 times before I had a long list of must-see locations I wanted to capture for this movie, but I am still not 100% used to carrying around so much gear required for time-lapse movies.
A large sandstorm hit the Sahara Desert on the 9th April ( and at approx 3am in the night the sandstorm hit me, making it nearly impossible to see the sky with my own eyes.
Interestingly enough my camera was set for a 5 hour sequence of the milky way during this time and I was sure my whole scene was ruined. To my surprise, my camera had managed to capture the sandstorm which was backlit by Grand Canary Island making it look like golden clouds. The Milky Way was shining through the clouds, making the stars sparkle in an interesting way. So if you ever wondered how the Milky Way would look through a Sahara sandstorm, look at 00:32.

Σχέσεις ζεύγους: Τέσσερα πιθανά σενάρια.

Κυριακή 10 Απριλίου 2011

5.00-8.00 μ.μ.

Εργαστήρι Δραματοθεραπείας με θέμα:

Σχέσεις ζεύγους: Τέσσερα πιθανά σενάρια.

Ένα εργαστήρι που επαναλαμβάνεται λόγω της απήχησης του.
Στηρίζεται στην τυπολογία ζευγαριών ενός από τους μεγαλύτερους Γάλλους ψυχαναλυτές, του
Didier Anzieu ( )  , που καταδεικνύει τα τέσσερα πιθανά σενάρια-δρόμους της εξέλιξης μίας ερωτικής σχέσης μετά τον πρώτο ερωτικό ενθουσιασμό.

Didier Anzieu-INA.JPG

Κάποια από αυτά τα σενάρια είναι ωφέλιμα για τα άτομα, αλλά όχι για τη σχέση, κάποια άλλα είναι για τη σχέση αλλά όχι για τα άτομα. Μόνο ένα είναι αυτό... που μπορεί να φέρει τόσο την ευτυχία στα μέλη, όσο και την μακροβιότητα στη σχέση.

Η προσωπική μας ιστορία και η σχέση των γονιών μας όπως την έχουμε βιώσει ως παιδιά επιδρούν καθοριστικά πάνω στις ερωτικές σχέσεις που συνάπτουμε ως ενήλικες.

Ένα εργαστήρι που μέσα από τη δραματοποίηση και τα παιχνίδια ρόλων στοχεύει στην πρόληψη της σχέσης ζεύγους και προτείνει θεραπευτικούς δρόμους.

Μπορούν να συμμετέχουν μεμονωμένα άτομα ή/και ζευγάρια, ενώ απευθύνεται τόσο σε ανθρώπους που ενδιαφέρονται για το θέμα, όσο και σε επαγγελματίες του χώρου ψυχικής υγείας που θέλουν να έρθουν σε επαφή με τη μέθοδο της δραματοθεραπείας.

Εισηγήτρια εργαστηρίου: Δήμητρα Σταύρου (Ψυχολόγος/Δραματοθεραπεύτρια).
Κόστος συμμετοχής: 50 Ευρώ.
Για επιβεβαίωση συμμετοχής και κράτηση θέσης: 2108064426, 6945350084.
