Wonders & Worries?
This will help frame our conversation this morning.
Wired: Technology – It just is.
The air we breathe...
•   This is the water we’re
    swimming in - it’s not going
    away
•   Technology changes at a
    rapid pace
•   This isn’t a new conversation
•   Technology expands our
    world
•   Use & moderation will look
    different for everyone
•   Nothing should get in the
    way of our calling to love
    God & love others, whether
    that’s technology or
    anything else
The Today Show - 1994: “What is internet?”

•   “What is Internet” Video
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JUs7iG1mNjI
Web 1.0 & Web 2.0: What’s the difference?

•   Static content                    •   Dynamically generated content

•   Enhancing knowledge               •   Enhancing creativity

•   Information download              •   Information sharing

•   Little to no interaction          •   Collaboration

•   Users are passive recipients of   •   Users are required to engage
    information                           with information, create it

•   FINDING                           •   CREATING & SHARING

Wonders: Creativity, Connection &
Collaboration
Creativity...

Ladies”

•   Pomplamoose: http://www.youtube.com/PomplamooseMusic

•   Single Ladies cover: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oIr8-f2OWhs
Connection...

•   Example: Connecting with
    members of church
•   New communities are formed
•   Deeper connection are made
    within already existing
    communities
•   Connection with the world:
    Iran, Egypt, Japan...
Ambient Awareness

"They call it “ambient awareness.” It is, they say, very much like being physically
near someone and picking up on his mood through the little things he does —
body language, sighs, stray comments — out of the corner of your eye. This is
the paradox of ambient awareness. Each little update — each individual bit of
social information — is insignificant on its own, even supremely mundane. But
taken together, over time, the little snippets coalesce into a surprisingly
sophisticated portrait of your friends’ and family members’ lives, like thousands
of dots making a pointillist painting. This was never before possible, because in
the real world, no friend would bother to call you up and detail the sandwiches
she was eating." (source link)
Collaboration...
Collaboration...

•   Wikipedia is more accurate.
•   New ways of working
    together
•   Open-source preaching
•   Liturgy & worship that truly
    are “the work of the people”
•   Is our worship & ministry
    operating from a 1.0 world
    mindset or a 2.0 world...?
Web 1.0 & Web 2.0: What’s the difference?

•   Static content                    •   Dynamically generated content

•   Enhancing knowledge               •   Enhancing creativity

•   Information download              •   Information sharing

•   Little to no interaction          •   Collaboration

•   Users are passive recipients of   •   Users are required to engage
    information                           with information, create it

•   FINDING                           •   CREATING & SHARING
Worries: Privacy & Too Much?
Privacy...

•   Young people often don’t
    get this
•   Once it’s out there, it’s out
    there
•   Must know & understand
    privacy settings on social
    networks
•   Privacy connected to safety
•   Caveat: Publicness is good
Jeff Jarvis on
“Publicness”
“In Public Parts, I’ll argue, as I have
here, that in our current privacy
mania we are not talking enough
about the value of publicness. If we
default to private, we risk losing the
value of the connections the internet
brings: meeting people,
collaborating with them, gathering
the wisdom of our crowd, and
holding the powerful to public
account. Yes, I believe we have a
right and need to protect our
privacy – to control our information
and identities – but I also want the
conversation and our decisions to
include consideration of the value of
sharing and linking. I also want to
protect what’s public as a public
good; that includes our internet. We
have plenty of privacy advocates. I
want to be a publicness
advocate.” (source link)
Just too much...?

•   Facebook friends
•   Pre-school reunion???
•   Relationships used to last
    for seasons, not we carry
    them all with us
•   Too much sharing? Potential
    for narcissism?
•   Always connected
•   Smartphones in bedrooms?
    81.5% said YES
So where do we
 go from here?
#1: Enjoy it!
•   We live in an EXCITING time
•   Embrace the awesomeness
•   Use technology for good
•   Connect with and help out
    other people
•   Get creative
#2: Vibrate: OFF
•   Spiritual direction
•   Make yourself “unavailable”
•   There was life before
    smartphones
•   Rejoice in the WIFI
    connections that go down
•   Connect with God
    (whatever that looks like for
    you) and not with others
#3: Be aware.
•   Work on your awareness
•   Use common sense
•   You will know - or your
    spouse/partner/child will let
    you know
•   Notice when it’s becoming a
    distraction to your
    spirituality and connection
    with God

  • 2. Me • Husband • Pastor • Blogger • Designer • Social Media Consultant • Gadget Geek
  • 3. Wonders & Worries? This will help frame our conversation this morning.
  • 4. Wired: Technology – It just is.
  • 5. The air we breathe... • This is the water we’re swimming in - it’s not going away • Technology changes at a rapid pace • This isn’t a new conversation • Technology expands our world • Use & moderation will look different for everyone • Nothing should get in the way of our calling to love God & love others, whether that’s technology or anything else
  • 6. The Today Show - 1994: “What is internet?” • “What is Internet” Video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JUs7iG1mNjI
  • 7. Web 1.0 & Web 2.0: What’s the difference? • Static content • Dynamically generated content • Enhancing knowledge • Enhancing creativity • Information download • Information sharing • Little to no interaction • Collaboration • Users are passive recipients of • Users are required to engage information with information, create it • FINDING • CREATING & SHARING
  • 8. Did You Know 4.0 • “Did You Know 4.0” video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ILQrUrEWe8
  • 11. Pomplamoose covers Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” • Pomplamoose: http://www.youtube.com/PomplamooseMusic • Single Ladies cover: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oIr8-f2OWhs
  • 12. Connection... • Example: Connecting with members of church • New communities are formed • Deeper connection are made within already existing communities • Connection with the world: Iran, Egypt, Japan...
  • 13. Ambient Awareness "They call it “ambient awareness.” It is, they say, very much like being physically near someone and picking up on his mood through the little things he does — body language, sighs, stray comments — out of the corner of your eye. This is the paradox of ambient awareness. Each little update — each individual bit of social information — is insignificant on its own, even supremely mundane. But taken together, over time, the little snippets coalesce into a surprisingly sophisticated portrait of your friends’ and family members’ lives, like thousands of dots making a pointillist painting. This was never before possible, because in the real world, no friend would bother to call you up and detail the sandwiches she was eating." (source link)
  • 15. Collaboration... • Wikipedia is more accurate. • New ways of working together • Open-source preaching • Liturgy & worship that truly are “the work of the people” • Is our worship & ministry operating from a 1.0 world mindset or a 2.0 world...?
  • 16. Web 1.0 & Web 2.0: What’s the difference? • Static content • Dynamically generated content • Enhancing knowledge • Enhancing creativity • Information download • Information sharing • Little to no interaction • Collaboration • Users are passive recipients of • Users are required to engage information with information, create it • FINDING • CREATING & SHARING
  • 17. Worries: Privacy & Too Much?
  • 18. Privacy... • Young people often don’t get this • Once it’s out there, it’s out there • Must know & understand privacy settings on social networks • Privacy connected to safety • Caveat: Publicness is good
  • 19. Jeff Jarvis on “Publicness” “In Public Parts, I’ll argue, as I have here, that in our current privacy mania we are not talking enough about the value of publicness. If we default to private, we risk losing the value of the connections the internet brings: meeting people, collaborating with them, gathering the wisdom of our crowd, and holding the powerful to public account. Yes, I believe we have a right and need to protect our privacy – to control our information and identities – but I also want the conversation and our decisions to include consideration of the value of sharing and linking. I also want to protect what’s public as a public good; that includes our internet. We have plenty of privacy advocates. I want to be a publicness advocate.” (source link)
  • 20. Just too much...? • Facebook friends • Pre-school reunion??? • Relationships used to last for seasons, not we carry them all with us • Too much sharing? Potential for narcissism? • Always connected • Smartphones in bedrooms? 81.5% said YES
  • 21. So where do we go from here?
  • 22. #1: Enjoy it! • We live in an EXCITING time • Embrace the awesomeness • Use technology for good • Connect with and help out other people • Get creative
  • 23. #2: Vibrate: OFF • Spiritual direction • Make yourself “unavailable” • There was life before smartphones • Rejoice in the WIFI connections that go down • Connect with God (whatever that looks like for you) and not with others
  • 24. #3: Be aware. • Work on your awareness • Use common sense • You will know - or your spouse/partner/child will let you know • Notice when it’s becoming a distraction to your spirituality and connection with God
