Behavior, Accountability and Social Media

Behavior, Accountability and Social Media
 

Technology is a powerful tool created to utilize proper and quick communication. The history of the internet began in the 1950's with the creation of electronic computers. In the 1990's, there was a rise in computer use due to instant messaging, email, and the World Wide Web.

In our present societies, social media has turned into a "psychological dumping ground" where people often use technology to complain without action.

Opening of Daemen Visual Effects Facility Marks Major Step in Growing Industry

Daemen College’s newly completed $2 million state-of-the-art visual effects facility was formally opened Dec. 5 with a ribbon-cutting ceremony, signifying a major step forward in a Buffalo Billion initiative focused on growing Buffalo Niagara’s film and post-production industry.

“Western New York is poised for success in developing a thriving regional post-production industry and this new, state-of-the-art visual effects facility is a key investment in making that happen,” said Daemen President Gary A. Olson. “We are proud to be a part of such a dynamic venture with great potential for economic growth and job creation.”

A year in the making, the nearly 16,000-square-foot visual effects facility evolved from a collaboration between Daemen and Empire Visual Effects, a post-production and animation company. A $4.5 million Buffalo Billion grant jump-started the endeavor, which included $1.9 million to Daemen to create and equip the high-tech facility.
