It’s not easy when you are subscribed to Spotify but your best friend is on Apple Music and the leader of your worship team is on YouTube Music. You may think you are talking about the same version of the song only to discover you’ve been practicing the wrong parts. Or worse still, one person in the group can’t even find that song. What do you do share songs across music streaming services?
We are living in the age of the Internet. I hate to say it is the golden age, because who knows what is coming. We haven’t had VR for that long and barely have online streaming games at this point with Alphabet’s Stadia. Hopefully there is more to come.
But what we do have now is near instantaneous connections with millions and billions of people. We need to know where to look to find them, but they are there. Whether social media like Facebook and Twitter, online forums like Reddit, blogs like this one, newsletters, and so on and so on.
My church is bi-lingual. We have a lot of English speakers but also Polish speakers since we’re in Kraków, Poland. Because of that, we have to do some clever things both in the service and online to suit both groups. This means making our church website flexible for different audiences is critical. I hope in sharing our use case you might get inspiration or ideas for your own.
Minecraft Earth is an augmented reality app that has been hyped for a long time and it kind of came out of nowhere when it was released. I was worried it was never coming out and then. Many websites have been comparing Minecraft Earth to the successful augmented reality app of Pokemon Go and if you take the resource gathering as the only part of the game, sure, it’s like Pokemon Go.
I’ll be honest, that first paragraph I wrote when the app first came out. Everything from here on out is me having sat with the app, or better yet, not sat with the app since then. The voice above, super pumped about this game coming out. But there is a whole host of cons that come with this.
An apple a day keeps the doctor away. A Snack Pack a week doesn’t keep the doctor away but I hope it makes your week better in some way.
The internet is full of clickbait headlines. Popular news organizations like Fox News and CNN both are buying into them and furthering the fuel of fake news. Babylon Bee, a well-known former Christian satire site, is crossing the line with clickbait over and over. But regularly you see clickbait online and it is making news articles harder and harder to trust.
So how do we know what is true? The video below shows how to better spot clickbait headlines and I even give one personal example of this afterward.
