Anouncing: New Media Mondays

One difference between Martin Luther and the reformers who came before him is that Luther used a new technology to spread his message. He also broke from the tradition of writing only in Latin and talked straight to the people.

Technology helped Luther change the world.

As Christians it is important for us to do the same. We must embrace new technologies to help spread the Good News. Learning new tech can be intimidating. So, for the next several weeks I will present a new technology every Monday.

You will learn:

  • What it is
  • How it works
  • How to use it to change the world

My goal is to use clear simple English and videos that I have found on the web. If you don’t understand the technology after 5 minutes I will consider that post a failure as far as you are concerned.

Before we get started, I want to share a preview video about Social Media. This is the big picture and the individual technologies are like the puzzle pieces that fit into that picture. In short, social media gives the power to the people.

One thought on “Anouncing: New Media Mondays

  1. That was funny! What a helpful analogy for non-tech people! Only thing is I’m seeing the video really, really huge. All your sentences are stretched out too. I don’t know if it’s a Blip.tv thing or what, but it makes it hard to read everything.
