Ana’s recent conference took place in Barcelona, Spain and featured a mix of innovative digital and social media speakers.
The conference was sponsored by a local startup called Ana. Ana is an online social network that works like Facebook for video and audio. The team also had an incredible presentation on the creation of an animated digital game, which will be featured at GDC, so you can get all the details.
Ana is also the brains behind the Ana social network, which means that it’s very possible that the Ana team was also at AIS 2011. Which is where I attended the conference, alongside friends from both Facebook and Ana who were giving talks. The conference didn’t go so well, as it was very hot and humid. I saw a lot of the social media content and didn’t really like it. The video quality was also very bad.
Ana is a social network, not a social game. The social content could be any that you can think of, plus I bet it has to do with the fact that this content is being used to create a social network.
The social media content is usually more like a “how to” guide or “how to do this” video. The social networks also use the content to push out their message to their community, and there’s a good chance they will. The content can have a big impact on the users, who might decide to “unfriend” you. That’s a problem with the social networks, as you can get to very deep places in your life through social media, but it’s also very dangerous.
In the last year or so, I have seen people talking about the many dangers of social media. I feel like there is a bit too much focus on it. The reason for this is because a lot of people are becoming very dependent on it. In the social media world, you have to be careful because its always easy to say something if you are not careful. These people will not become paranoid, but in the long run this can be very dangerous.
Social media and the internet is a bit like the two sides of the same coin as it relates to social anxiety. You can either get paranoid and social media is as dangerous as a firestorm at your house, or you can be in the safe zone and not worry about it. I like the safe zone idea. I live in a part of the country where I have no idea if I live in a city or a rural area.
When I tell people that I don’t have any social anxiety at all, they usually say, “Oh okay, then I’ll be extra safe then.” That’s fine. I understand it. Having this anxiety is not something I need. I don’t think I have any social anxiety anyway. I know that I won’t do something dangerous that I do not need to do. I don’t need to. If I do, I’ll do it anyway.
Zone is a state of mind, not a place. I have some anxiety about where I live, because I never know how someone is going to react to me when Im in zone. I think I have more anxiety about where I live than zone, but zone is where I live. It is where I go on a daily basis, where I spend my time. It is where I spend my money. It is the location of my home. It has always been where I live.
I was looking at some of the events and I just realized that the only thing I know about zone is that it is where I go to go. I dont know why I said this, but I dont really care. I just care about where I go, and that is it. But I know it is a state of mind.
