For this post I interviewed Margie Bergan who is around eighty years old. During the interview I asked a number of questions about her experiences with technology and media. It was interesting to speak with her because she vary rarely uses the radio, TV, or the Internet. She often commented on how she doesn’t like background noise when she is in her house or even when she is driving in the car. Mrs. Bergan also commented that she believes children today are missing out on life because of the growing popularity of media. I think her opinions can teach everyone something. Although we all love our music, television, and Internet videos, perhaps we don’t need to have something playing every second of the day. Sometimes the best sound is no sound at all and it might even allow us to find the time to let our imaginations fly free.

Below is a short clip from my interview with Mrs. Bergan:
