Every once in a while, something comes along that forever changes the way you think of yourself, the world around you and your approach to life. For me, that something was more of a journey; one that began when I read an article of the Opinionator section of the NY Times last summer. The article addressed the Dunning-Kruger Effect, which defines generally that “our incompetence masks our ability to recognize our incompetence.”
Video Chatting is transforming traditional communication among families by expanding borders beyond the property lines of the home.
Although it is a well known principle that the universe as a whole is “expanding at an increasing rate”, I am comfortable claiming the opposite for our world: the world we live in is contracting at an increasing rate; due mostly to the speed of transferring information and our increasing capabilities to communicate.
On the weekends, SheBytes likes to give you (our readers), the lighter side of tech.
And seeing that this is Christmas weekend, we thought we’d give you something to laugh and feel good about.
Go ahead and share this with those you love…Merry Christmas!

LEGO for Girls? The soon to come LEGO Friends, is determined to challenge all preconceptions we have about what qualifies as a ‘boy’s toy’ and a ‘girl’s toy’.
Personally, I’ve always viewed the build it yourself, LEGO (@LEGO_Group) and K’nex type toys, as the much more male oriented ‘boy’s toys’. Maybe this was because they were only available in sets like the Bionicle’s, that were a little more, shall we say, dark and manly.
On the other side of the spectrum, call me sexist but as a child, I had no predilection to play with dolls. I didn’t find things like American Girl dolls to be fun or attractive, which was also probably because the lines available to me were unappealing simply in that they were intended for girls.
It seems like Google has got just so much to offer that hardly a day goes by when the company doesn’t roll out something new.
In the last few weeks in particular, Google has been offering so much,
Paul Davies is a well-known physicist.
Natural Light (lovingly called Natty Light), is a dirt cheap college beer which is probably the worst thing you’ve ever drank.
If you love startups and entrepreneurship, you’ll be really inspired by the brand new nonprofit Venture For America!
“Mobilizing graduates as entrepreneurs”
Girls and careers in technology is a hot topic here on SheBytes. We’ve written about whether the amount of technology firms headed by female CEO’s and executives is improving, and have drawn attention to women led startups who are trying to tip the scales.
Social Media and gender are a hot topic, especially here on SheBytes, a tech blog written from a woman’s perspective. Women and men approach many things differently; and we are fascinated and really spellbound by the ways in which social media enable us not only to reach an incomparable number of people (when we look at how our past generations reached out to others), but also at how to engage and connect.
The always funny Robin Williams did a Siri impersonation on the Ellen show that really made us laugh! Siri, the built in and easy to access app for personal assistance on the iPhone 4S, has spurned countless spoofs and YouTube clips. We thought we’d share one. Enjoy!
