I have to admit: I like to be “innovative” and “creative” just like the next tech geek and sometimes I take it too far for a spin in the seat, but this guy has has me beat.
He’s using Twitter to turn on and off his lights. You have to see it to believe it.
But here’s the challenge that I all think we can take away from this: Are we using technology properly? Or are we creating uses that the medium never was intended for (and not that’s always a bad thing)?
Have you ever used a technology in such a way that was way outside the boundaries of it’s user manual? I know that I have. Perhaps the even greater question, and much more tough one, is whether this is the absolute best use of our time.
Remember, time is our most valuable and limited resource.
