I’ve been really interested in all of our discussions in class, but I think that my favorite topic was last week when we talked about life hacks. I think that life hacks are so cool and I really enjoy learning about random little tricks that can be incorporated into my daily life. It’s fun to do a task a little bit differently to save you a little bit of time or money. I found this cool website that has a lot of really cool tricks that I wish I would have thought of myself that can make your life a little bit simpler.
I think that the term “life hack” is similar to the more technological definition of hack which involves computers and programs. A life hack is just a shortcut allows you to do something in a slightly different way, someone who comes up with a life hack, uses innovation to solve a problem and make their lives easier. This is essentially what someone is doing when they hack a computer. They are trying use computers to solve a problem to benefit themselves or possibly to help others, and they both are creative applications of ingenuity.
