Digital Zombie A person using digital technology and/or social mediato a point that they become fixated only in that faux reality. They have difficulty looking people in the eye or carrying on healthy conversations. Even displaying signs of early onset dementia. Many times they don’t see details of life happening around them and they have limited “people” skills inside the real world. Something many internet gurus including Eric Schmidt, the executive chairman ofGoogle, is worried about in the future. Link:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Zombie
I discover a DH project called “digital zombies”. The project aims to;
- discover how to search online for relevant historical sources
- cite the sources so readers know where you got your information
- explore other ways of doing research
- learn how to use all these “digital” tools and methods to write a compelling essay about a historical topic.
