Look Up – Lève les Yeux par Gary Turk

Je ne vais pas mentir je me reconnais dans certains passages mais ne dit-on pas qu’il faut d’abord prendre conscience du problème pour le résoudre ? Je vous laisse appréciée l’exercice poétique de Gary Turk que j’ai essayé de traduire en conservant l’esprit et les rimes. Look up – Gary Turk I have 422 friends, yet I am lonely. I speak to all of them everyday, yet none of them really know me. The problem I have, sits in the spaces between, looking into their eyes, or at a name on a screen.

I took a step back, and opened my eyes, I looked around, and then realised that this media we call social, is anything but when we open our computers, and it’s our doors we shut.

Four years ago, Stacy Snyder, then a 25-year-old teacher in training at Conestoga Valley High School in Lancaster, Pa., posted a photo on her MySpace page that showed her at a party wearing a pirate hat and drinking from a plastic cup, with the caption "Drunken Pirate.

" After discovering the page, her supervisor at the high school told her the photo was "unprofessional," and the dean of Millersville University School of Education, where Snyder was enrolled, said she was promoting drinking in virtual view of her under-age students. As a result, days before Snyder's scheduled graduation, the university denied her a teaching degree. Snyder sued, arguing that the university had violated her First Amendment rights by penalizing her for her (perfectly legal) after-hours behavior. But in 2008, a federal district judge rejected the claim, saying that because Snyder was a public employee whose photo didn't relate to matters of public concern, her "Drunken Pirate" post was not protected speech.

“It may look as though kids are wasting a lot of time hanging out with new media, whether it’s on MySpace or sending instant messages,” said Mizuko Ito, lead researcher on the study, “Living and Learning With New Media.” “But their participation is giving them the technological skills and literacy they need to succeed in the contemporary world. They’re learning how to get along with others, how to manage a public identity, how to create a home page.” The study, conducted from 2005 to last summer, describes new-media usage but does not measure its effects. “It certainly rings true that new media are inextricably woven into young people’s lives,” said Vicki Rideout, vice president of the Kaiser Family Foundation and director of its program for the study of media and health.

What is the good news about? 2 Doc. 1. Why Social Media Isn't Social  The rise of Internet-based innovations promised to connect us together, to unite us in an egalitarian community of billions of individuals, sharing our lives through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Foursquare, and more.

Why Social Media Isn't Social 

But social media’s effects are anything but social, they’re a crutch — a crutch on which we lean instead of learning how to interact and communicate with others effectively. I believe that social media does two unfortunate things: It allows individuals to put on masks and hold up shields. The Social Media Mask Have you ever noticed that the lives’ of your ostensibly boring friends always seem way more interesting on social media sites? That’s because these sites and apps allow us to choose an impressive filter for our lives, making boring exceptional and mediocre exciting. And thus, we spend our lives keeping up with the Virtual Benjamin’s; creating an online persona that rarely looks anything like us — a cybernetic facelift, if you will.
