Author to Discuss Technology and How It Shapes Us at Watchung Booksellers, 10/26

Not So Fast

I’m willing to bet you are currently on your laptop, iPhone, iPad, or all of the above at the same time. Technology defines the world we live in, yet we’re so immersed in it, so encompassed by it, that we mostly take it for granted. Author Doug Hill will discuss this and his book Not So Fast Wednesday, October 26 at Watchung Booksellers.

What is technology, and how is it shaping us? In search of answers to those crucial questions, Not So Fast draws on the insights of dozens of scholars and artists who have thought deeply about the meanings of machines. The book explores such dynamics as technological drift, technological momentum, technological disequilibrium, and technological autonomy to help us understand the interconnected, interwoven, and interdependent phenomena of our technological world. In the course of that exploration, Doug Hill poses penetrating questions of his own, among them: Do we have as much control over our machines as we think? And who can we rely on to guide the technological forces that will determine the future of the planet?

Baristanet Profile: Talib Nelson

The latest installment of our Baristanet Profile series, where we get to know the people in our neighborhood:

Name: Talib Nelson

Where do you live? North Fullerton, across the street from Immaculate church…and its bells!

When did you move there? Three years ago…though it feels like I moved in last year.

Where did you grow up? Partially in Kingston, Jamaica, but mostly in Montclair. I feel more Jamaican than American, right — but I feel more like a Mountie than I do anything else.

How do you make a living? I’m a self-taught software engineer: I solve problems with math by writing code. The funny thing is that I started doing it as a temporary measure for a personal project, realized I enjoyed it, and it became a career. Now I work for a company called Shutterstock, whose offices are in the Empire State Building.

Coffee, tea or … ? Tea. It’s the only proper answer. Growing up in Jamaica, with all its ties to the U.K., a cup of tea kind of feels like home.

Two Montclair Filmmakers Create Films Dealing With Loss, Independence, and the Woods

BY  |  Wednesday, Oct 12, 2016 3:45pm  |  COMMENTS (0)

allegra givensAllegra Givens graduated from Montclair High School in 2013. She was, what she says was, “one of three ‘film nerds’ in my grade and only two of us went on to pursue film in college.” For her senior year, she based her senior option project around making a silent film so she could work on her skills at visual storytelling. That film, “YOU+ME,” went on to screen in two film festivals the following fall.

Today, Givens attends Chapman University in California as a Film Production major and is gearing up to make her senior thesis Emma in the Woods, a 15-minute film with a crew of over 35 people (both Chapman students and some industry professionals). The film is about an orphan girl whose younger sister disappears on a hike the day she is supposed to move out of her group home.
