Being my parish?s webmaster, I have the responsibility of maintaining an online presence for our church. Like any good webmaster, my job is to make sure the site is constantly updated with events, photographs and information about services, ministries and the sacraments we offer. In the era of on-demand content, my other responsibilities are to provide audio recordings and podcasts of the weekly Sunday readings and sermons, and post them on Twitter and Facebook. Photographs of church events go on our Facebook and Flickr pages so parents can see their kids participating (they love that sort of stuff)

Part Two: Can technology result in an alienation of intimacy and cause psychological conflicts? Is human contact being diminished by technological advancements? What are the consequences? Is there a need for immediate gratification that possibly can decrease life's satisfaction? With technology there are fewer emotions conveyed wherein more misunderstandings can result. There are three levels of intimacy from highest to lowest. Level 1: Talking face-to-face, video chats, and telephones are the most intimate where feelings, emotions, and body language can be seen and interpreted.

I was walking down Foothill Boulevard shortly after dawn with our dog, Miss Audrey Hepburn. As I walked, I wrestled with an important decision. My laptop is decrepit. I need a new laptop. What should I buy? My friends say the PC is dead. One says to buy a Mac. The other says to buy an iPad. I can’t decide. I walk Foothill Boulevard, ignoring my dog, checking my friends' texted messages on my phone. I feel guilty. This is supposed to be my quality time with my dog. I wonder if she notices that I’m not paying attention.

There is one thing that distinguishes La Cañada High School math teacher Mike Upton from his like-minded colleagues — chalk dust. Or rather, the absence of it. His hands, shirt and pant legs are clean of the white powdery film that for decades was the tell-tale sign of a school teacher. That is because Upton has spent the last 18 months delivering lessons using the “mimio,” an interactive, digital white board that, along with other key pieces of educational technology, is transforming classroom instruction in the La Cañada Unified School District.

Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy is geographically about as disconnected from the La Cañada downtown area as a school could be. Up twisting miles of streets that run into each other like paths in a maze, up where the coyotes and deer scramble across the streets. But this year the private Catholic girls? school is making up for its geographic distance and disconnect with a number of brand new technological additions that bring it out of the hills and right into the homes of its students.

La Crescenta resident Winston Story has collected more than 40 signatures from fellow parents for a petition against Glendale Unified's use of Wi-Fi in classrooms over concerns that radio waves emitted by wireless Internet routers could pose health risks to children. Story is the father of a child who attends Mountain Avenue Elementary School, which also serves families living in the westernmost section of La Cañada Flintridge. Story presented his concerns during a school board meeting last week on the same night Glendale school officials announced plans to boost bandwidth at all the district's schools by the end of November to improve wireless Internet network usage.

At JPL, there is no shortage of doctorates and intellectual pedigrees among the facility's 5,000 employees. But what is rare, anyone there can tell you, is a truly good manager. Enter David Gallagher, a La Cañada resident recently appointed by JPL to head the directorate of Astronomy, Physics and Space Technology, one of five operational divisions. Gallagher is modest about his high-ranking position, indicating with a chuckle that he's come all this way on “just” a bachelor's degree in engineering from Purdue University and his ability to organize diverse groups of people.
