How Modern Technology has Affected the Language of ROMANCE

“Damn that ginger is so short and sexy“:

Student, Brigid Slattery explores the ways people use modern technology to reach their loved ones.  She explores how couples utilize facebook (through statuses, pictures, and wall comments), ichat, texting, etc to stay connected.

I made the following slide show presentation it’s a little long but let me know what you think!

  1. I think this is SUCH an interesting concept for a TED talk and so true how besides keeping in touch with one another, a lot of couples use media to meet one another, stay in touch, and fight over things (like facebook pictures) ha great idea!

  2. Brigid,
    LOVE the slides! the font works perfectly and you thought it through by changing the color of certain words. the introduction slides tell a story in itself which is great and beautiful. i can’t wait to hear the talk that goes with this but am wondering how you are going to fit it all in in 5 minutes. perhaps you could cut out some quotes or make the beginning slides a quick movie. also love the slide – “the facebook story” so cute. good luck!!
