Another question for Chloe Smith

Another question for Chloe Smith

Q: Are you a Luddite? Or do you have the latest and greatest technology?

A: I’m a member of the Oregon Trail generationthe people who got the internet at home when they were children or teens, who know the sound of dial-up, might have gotten their first cell phone when they went off to college, and definitely had social media accounts by the time they graduated. As a result, although I remember life before everything was digitally connected, I’ve always had to adapt to evolving technology. I try to be comfortable with new platforms, media, and devices, but I also don’t value any of it for its own sake. Technology is really just a big umbrella term for an expanding set of tools. Like storytelling, the value is in how it’s used.
