Basically a blog that awes people

I just posted a blog for this week, but I'm doing another because I just thought about how badass our registration process is compared to other schools. It is truly living in the information age. When I registered for classes it took no time and I got the schedule I wanted, exactly. Awesome

Alright, so yesterday I had my drum jury, which is where I prepare a drummer report of a favorite drummer of mine and then transcribe a song of his. I did my report on David Garibaldi. He's a badass. Anyways, I was able to get all my information on the internet as well as free staff paper to transcribe on. Thank you, internet for making my project take 4 minutes instead of 4 hours. Exalt, information age.

It's the monday of Little 5 and I'm writing my blog for the week before the week gets too "crazy" (HAH) for me to type. Basically this week is going to be crazyness and I probably won't interact with the information age at all, unless the information age has anything to do with alcohol. CHEERS

So today is my birthday, a lousy 20 years old. It kind of sucks and the last thing I want to be doing is blogging. However, I found an interesting application of "living in the information" age today. When I logged onto my facebook I found over 20 people had written on my wall wishing me a happy birthday. Many of these people I've never talked to for a few years. Of course, not all these people remembered my birthday, but facebook reminds you about when your friends have birthdays. So, I wonder then, if facebook didn't remind people about my birthday and people didn't check their facebook so often, how many wall edits would I have actually had???

I'm the pledgemaster for my fraternity and I wanted my guys (the spring class) to have shirts for their pledgeclass. An amazing thing about the internet now is that we were able to send the design to a shirt maker and they were able to preview and tell us how much it would cost. Not only that, we were able to design the shirt using software, which is much cleaner than a design by hand. In addition to designing, we were able to order them too. I can't imagine how long it would have taken if we had to use snail mail.

My rough draft for T160 is due today. I did my paper on the social implications of World of Warcraft. Although I haven't played the game extensively, it was pretty amazing the things I found out about the game and the MMORPG genre. Obvoiously, another implication of living in the information age, MMORPGs allow millions of people to interact simultaneously. Crazy stuff, really. Also, its pretty nuts how into the games people get. It seems as if the information age affects people more than I thought.

Qualifications for little 5 are coming soon. An interesting application of the information age is the fact that I can go online and see all the track times and the schedule for Little 5. Little 5 requires alot of preparation and its execution obviously has alot to do with the utilization of the internet. Just another example of how living in the information age has made life easier on all of us greeks.

We leave on saturday for Tahoe to go skiing on spring break. Living in the information age made our spring break plans so much easier to arrange. We were able to buy our plane tickets, reserve our hotel, and buy our lift tickets all over the internet. Years ago, you would have to do all the things separately and by phone. Living in this age made the process so easy, that it actually encouraged me to do it in the future which is also a good business practice.
