Dear Veronica is a new tech etiquette show starring Veronica Belmont, debuting on Engadget Wednesday, June 10th, 2015.
Like many of you, I have a curious mind. We're interested in technology, sure; but there's so much more to our culture these days than just gadgets and OS updates. Technology intersects with nearly every part of our lives: from medicine to art, etiquette and sports, food and love.
When the team at Engadget asked me to come create a new show with them, it was this idea that was stuck in my mind. I wanted to make a series that helps us navigate this uncharted terrain. Technology is evolving so quickly that we (humans, most of us) may not be adapting fast enough. We haven't figured out the social mores. The rulebooks haven't been rewritten yet. We're kind of just figuring it out as we go.
Like, what's the deal with the poop emoji, anyway? You know, the important stuff.
I certainly don't have all the answers, but I want to help suss them out. I'll tackle some of the biggest questions of our age with the help of the folks at Engadget, and all the other brilliant people I plan on enlisting for Dear Veronica.
But seriously... we want your questions. They can be related to tech, of course (this is Engadget, after all), but our scope is wide. Let us know what you want to know! Send in your questions on Twitter using the #dearveronica hashtag, or get creative on Instagram or Vine using the same tag (we'll find them).
Also, I'm kind of obsessed with the background of the set. The artist, Sirron Norris, is based in San Francisco, and he's amazing. How can we not have fun with a Lisa Frank-inspired emoji fever dream?
