Next Conference 2010 - Berlin Day 2

1,430

Published on

A short presentation by Jim Stolze about Internet Psychology. We know now that the Internet makes us happy when there is a social element involved. But what makes us unhappy is the inability to handle large amounts of information in the way that were used to. Stolze advocates a new style of digital media literacy.
