Esto es mi dragón de peluche que mi amiga mejor me regaló para la navidad. El es un character de uno de mis peliculas favoritas, “How to Train Your Dragon.” Yo lo vi la primera vez con mi amiga mejor y ella hechó el animal de peluche a mano. Me lo gusta mucho y cada vez yo veo el dragón yo pienso de ella.

Fidgital! A new word for the digital age! what next? 
think of all the words we use today that didn’t even exist 30 years ago. If you told someone in 1980 “I just texted my mother from my iPhone before surfing the web using the wifi at Starbucks to find the nearest place to buy a flat screen hdtv but it didn’t work because they don’t have a very good network connection and I couldn’t get 3G inside either. So instead I decided to go home and watch a dvd on my laptop or stream netflix on my tablet” they would have looked at you like you were crazy. 
You think someone 20 years ago would have any idea what sexting is?
The way we talk is evolving almost as fast as our technology does. Some of those terms are great and excellent descriptors. Others lack a certain amount of class. Think I’m wrong? Go explore urbandictionary.com for a fun little lesson in modern day language.

Fidgital
Lizzie Skurnick coins a term in the New York Times.
Over at Salon, Katie McDonough reminds us of a recent study “that found smartphone users exhibit actual withdrawal symptoms when forced to abstain from using their devices. The study also found that many subjects felt physical discomfort after not checking their phone for extended periods of time.”
As someone with a New Year’s resolution that no laptops, phones or tablets can enter the bedroom, I’m glad to be able to put a word and idea to it. — Michael
