Tron found to be surprisingly relevant and entertaining

Watched the new “Tron” movie the other night.

Expected to be not very impressed, but surprisingly I enjoyed this film, finding it both visually impressive and with a relevant and meaningful story line.

Now I may just have to watch the original just to get more of the backstory…

Moral of story: Don’t be that parent who get’s lost in a virtual world for 20 years and misses out on the kid(s) growing up. ┬áIt might be really cool in there but you’ll end up realizing that the virtual world will always be there when you have time for it, but the moments with your kids only come once and then the opportunity is gone forever.

Dang, well so much for that quantum physics experiment I was going to start in the garage…

Time instead to start that list of “Things the kids keep bugging me to do, but I always have some lame excuse as to why now is not a good time”.

Managing the flood of digital information and entertainment may be one of the greatest challenges for those of us who grew up as the digital revolution unfolded, especially those of us raising kids who are born into a digitally saturated world.

Most of us are still learning how to manage all this, let alone figuring out how to teach our kids the best strategies for managing all the ups and downs of information/media/entertainment/visual stimuli overload that comes with the digital age.
