1. Free hugs in Italy So what’s my peeve? That we don’t hug enough, perhaps. That we’re focused on social media as a technological activity. Hugging is an old-fashioned, original social media. And the music is Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelulujah,” such a beautiful song. By the way, it’s youth who are out in town doing this. The millennial generation, I suspect. But they aren’t on their electronic gadget in this video. (Yes, I know, the video is social media.)
2. Speaking of youth, here is a marvelous public policy, political action video. Students at Wesleyan University in Connecticut. Marvelous. Inspiring. A commitment to honesty and integrity, health and care, planned sex and planned pregnancy.
3. I haven’t yet figured out how to use a QR code on my iPhone. And this video rants about bad use of QR codes. I love the speaker because he uses a phrase I use all the time: “Stop it! Just stop it!” Thanks to www.futurefundraisingnow.com for this one. The presenter’s real point is, “Think things through before you do them.” Whether it’s a QR code or anything else.
