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.
