I posted on your last blog post as an assignment for Dr. Strange’s
EDM310 class and am also commenting on this one. My first thoughts after
watching that are centered around how WEIRD it is what technology is
doing. I didn’t know the internet had anything to do with the washing
machine. It is known to all of us that the growth of the internet
depends on the users However a lot of people don’t realize how many new
users are added everyday and how many intellectual people and creative
inventors partake in use of the internet. The outcome this foretells is
that the internet will be each of our personal assistants. I use it for
communication, organization, shopping, answers to questions, research,
music, and movies. Not only that, but each day it teaches me something
new. If I am astounded the 2.0 version of the internet now, I’m curious
as to what the 3.0 version will be able to do for me. Thanks for sharing
Hello again! I was also unaware that the washing macine had anything
to do with the internet, I find that to be strange. It is very true
that the internet has become our assistants. It keep track of our
favorite websites, what we like to listen too, and products we like to
use. I have never thought about this before, but it is kind of creepy!
Think of this example. Your washing machine is connected and knows
when the electricity charges or power demands are low. It can then
decide when to turn on. What about if it was connected to an online
weather forecast or a thermometer outside? The air temperature or wind
speed could help the washing machine decide how long to spin the clothes
or, in the case of a combination washer/dryer, whether to turn on the
dryer or not. It could even to send you an sms or tweet saying that
the clean washing needs hanging out to dry… and quickly, before the rain
Hi! I have commented on your blog previously for Dr. Strange’s
EDM310 class. I am very moved by this video you have posted. It is just
so crazy how technology is evolving and web 3.0 is just the next step.
It makes me wonder where technology will go from there. It seems to me
as if web 3.0 is about to make all of our lives a lot easier. I liked
the part about being able to already know and suggest the type of music I
like and getting me to buy things that other people who share my
interests have already bought because it is able to link together all
kinds of information from different sources. This all just blows my mind
and makes me excited about where technology is headed in the future. I
especially cannot wait to use all this great technology to be a better
educator in the classroom. I really liked this video because it has
opened my eyes to something new and exciting.
Hi! I am from Dr. Strange’s EDM310 class at the University of South
Alabama. This video was a little shocking to me. I knew technology was
advancing rapidly, but I did not know certain items were even effected
by it. The washing machine being impacted by the internet was a little
weird for me. Pretty soon everything we do will be done through the
internet, and I am not sure if I am as ready as this as I should be. I
guess I better start getting ready because it won’t wait on me. I am
very curious on how the 3.0 version of the internet will change things.
Thank you for sharing the video!
Hello again from Dr.Strange’s EDM310 class. I thought this video was
great. It is hard to imagine how much our internet will be able to do
for us over time. Not only is 3.0 going to bring numerous new advantages
to internet users but from there people will work hard and strive for a
bigger and better internet. Hard to imagine! I use the internet
everyday for various reasons; communication, school, research and online
classes to name a few reasons. The fact the internet could potentially
be linked to everything we do/use such as our washing machines is really
mind blowing. Thanks for sharing!
Hello! I am a student in Dr. Strange’s EDM 310 course here at the
University of South Alabama. I have been assigned to your blog for the
next few weeks. At the end of this assignment, I will be posting a brief
summary of your posts on my own blog, which can be viewed at: http://brooksmattieedm310.blogspot.com/
The internet is by far one of the most fascinating things about
technology. Just as said in this video, this technology is coming
seemingly invisible, I often do not realize just how vast the internet
truly is! I really enjoyed this video because it shows where internet
has been, and it hints at where it is going as well. I sometimes wish
that I had been around when the internet was first coming into the
picture… that would have been such a sight!
My name is AnnMerritt Taylor. I commented on your most recent post last
week. So here I am again. Happy to be back. I found this video to be
really interesting. Like the students above who were previously enrolled
in EDM 310, I had no idea that the washing machine was connected! It’s
crazy to think about how many aspects of our lives are influenced by the
internet. I am not paranoid about my world or the government, but I’m
starting to understand why some people are and all of these conspiracy
theories. I am no technological genius, but it makes me feel like if you
were, you could take stalking to a-whole-nother level. You could
monitor, all of their internet history, find out there likes and
dislikes, monitor where their vehicle was driving, when they were using
certain electronics in their home, and even when they were doing their
laundry! ha ha. Wow, it’s crazy. I like to look at it from a different
light. I think it can only continue to make our lives more and more
efficient by connecting all of our daily activities.
I will be commenting on what I read on your posts in my My Class Blog. Feel free to visit it anytime,
My name is Rebekah, and I am commenting on your very interesting
blog once again, as a part of Dr. Strange’s EDM 310 class at the
University of South Alabama. If you would like to read a summary of my
comments on your blog feel free to do so by visiting my blog.
I really enjoyed this video! It was both educational – i had no idea
that washing machines were internet savvy now! – and informative. I
learned a bit about how amazon and facebook make the internet more
personal, as well as the potential that the web has for further
expansion. My only question is: Do you think that the internet becoming
“an omniscient being – capable of human intelligence” is a good thing. I am kind of timid on that thought, and would enjoy any comments on the topic. Thank you for an enjoyable experience!
I liked this video. It really makes you think about what can be
created and how the internet contributes to it. I love the idea that, as
you made an example of, washing machines and dryers might one day have
the capability to “think” on their own.
It is amazing to see how quickly technology has evolved over the
past few years. Things that I never even imagined have improved
dramatically with the advancement in technology. With washes and dryers
now having such capabilities it makes me excited to see what new
technology will be available in the coming years.
What a long way we have come along! This blog was posted two years
ago and is still accurate. Whoever made it was really looking ahead.
It’s very exciting to see where technology is going. I hope I never find
myself in a coma for long time because I would wake up to find that
things have changed a lot.
