It was sent by Neil Papwell, a British engineer, from his computer to an Orbitel 901. But also, when a photo of mine is liked, or I am tagged in some generic meme, I instantly feel validated and important because someone bothered to think about me. The only comparison would be gathering your many hundred ‘friends’ into a room and have them constantly scream compliments at you.
Since then, technology has progressed leaps and bounds. But I would argue its made the quality of our lives far worse. Simply put, there’s no way I could cope without it. Social media presents a distorted sense of reality. Someone may be miserable, and all it takes is for one smiling, filtered photo to give the appearance that they are not. With only a few clicks, social media makes you feel better than you ever can in your real life. I crave the dopamine hit and want it again and again.
Not only does it allow me to immediately contact my friends, but a lot of my scheduling is also done on it: sport groups, event invitations, and college pages are all on Facebook. What I find frustrating is everything else, primarily the fact that our constantly updating newsfeeds give the appearance that all our our ‘friends’ are happy, popular and successful. Constantly switching between apps means my attention is never focussed on anything for a significant period of time, and when I have to concentrate, I often struggle.
But why bother having to deal with the unpredictable stress of face-to-face interaction when you can just send a text message, amirite? I can’t eliminate social media entirely – it’s essential to the way I live my life.So I won’t actually be throwing my phone into the Cam, but I realise a more balanced approach to technology is necessary.It helps to think that nothing I can ever do on my phone makes progress in real life, or makes me happy as real people. In 20 or 30 years time I don’t want to look back on my adolescence only for it to be filled with memories of me looking at a screen.The massive technological advance in the past 25 years has made our lives infinitely easier.It’s in within our hands to make sure it doesn’t make our lives worse.The film was given a simultaneous VOD and limited theatrical release on August 22, 2014, and stars Tammin Sursok as a tourist that becomes the target of a serial killer after logging on to a cam website.Allie (Tammin Sursok) is a young American staying in a hostel apartment building while travelling through Thailand.A friendly boarder introduces her to Cam2Cam, a popular online chat program that allows people to interact with one another.Curious, Allie logs on and soon discovers that there was a serial killer that used Cam2Cam to find his female victims, one of whom was staying in Allie's current room.After fellow boarder Marit (Sarah Bonrepaux) is murdered, Allie begins to worry that she is next on the serial killer's list.as review sites like Shock Till You Drop commented that the movie "straddles the middle without committing to any one genre", which they felt kept it from being as interesting as it might otherwise have been.
