We Live In Public –

Trailer is kinda’ NSFW, but not horrible. I was going to post the “safe” trailer, but this really captures the mood of the movie best.

Ever wonder what all this social networking is doing to our lives in society? That the question explored in the documentary called We Live In Public which was recently screened at the NuArt Theater in Los Angeles. Rene and I missed it this year at Sundance, there were just too many good movies to see, and so we jumped at the chance to get free tickets!!! It’s currently traveling around the country and if you get a chance to watch it I highly recommend it, especially if you’re a Facebook junkie.

The documentary follows an internet pioneer you’ve probably never heard of, but he predicted, about 15 years early, how we would be using technology and social media today and he tried to jump start it back in the 90’s when the technology couldn’t keep up with his ideas. Following his life, and those who were affected by it and his projects, is shockingly self affronting and made both Rene and I re-examine just why we interacted with social media the way we do.

Check it out and let me know what you think.

See you tomorrow!

Oh, and if you’re still feeling voyeuristic after you see it make sure to visit me on all of MY social networking sites. The links are in the sidebar.

    I want to know more on how you are re-examining your use of social media and if you’ve changed anything because of watching this film.

  2. I don’t know that I changed very much, I’m already pretty cautious with my social media, but it really did hit home just how “out there” you are on the net. I can say that the largest impact it has made is on how I Twitter. I’m far less likely to do the, “Just got coffee, now I’m going to go drop a deuce.” tweets.
