@kirstyes @allisulli Oops sorry about that. #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 19:58:59 +0000)
@kirstyes #occhat Evening all. Who’s here?(Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:00:22 +0000)
@BillWongOT @kirstyes hello! #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:01:13 +0000)
@kirstyes Let’s get right on it. First question tonight is have you noticed any changes in your time use due to digital technology? #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:03:12 +0000)
@BillWongOT @kirstyes I would say I spent more time on it for sure… big difference from high school days and now. #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:04:51 +0000)
@kirstyes @MissHeldi Hi, wondered why you’d considered tonight’s topic so relevant. Care to share what clicked with you #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:05:00 +0000)
@kirstyes @BillWongOT What would be the main reasons for that (spending more time on it) do you think? #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:06:14 +0000)
@elaamleung @kirstyes #occhat hello! interesting Q & yes. i used to write lots of letters 2 frds when small. now just facebook. stil kept all letters :)(Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:06:27 +0000)
@OTalk_Occhat Looking forward to #Occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:06:44 +0000)
@BillWongOT @kirstyes 1. stress (since what I had in high school is way less than now) 2. the fact that #OT is not second nature to me #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:07:29 +0000)
@kirstyes @elaamleung Great reply. I’ve kept all my letter too. Do you miss writing letters/look back through Facebook at all? #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:07:52 +0000)
@BillWongOT @kirstyes 3. desire to be connected with friends more #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:08:22 +0000)
@gilliancrossley @kirstyes I spend a lot of time on it.. but feel it makes occ balance more accessible for me #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:08:29 +0000)
@DoAbility RT @otalk_occhat : Looking forward to #Occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:08:44 +0000)
@kirstyes @BillWongOT You mentioned stress, so do you feel it helps with or increases stress, or both? #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:09:13 +0000)
@BillWongOT @kirstyes @elaamleung that’s interesting. All I could remember were what people wrote on my senior yearbook before I had Facebook. #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:09:17 +0000)

@DoAbility Hello #occhat everyone!(Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:09:48 +0000)
@kirstyes @gilliancrossley How do you feel it helps your occupational balance? #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:10:05 +0000)
@fullyOccupied #occhat hi all – one example is the competition for my time tonight – want to be here, but also other things to do! #wheresmybalance (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:10:48 +0000)
@kirstyes #occhat I’ll throw that open to everyone. In what ways does digital technology support your occupational balance? #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:11:12 +0000)
@AnnabelFenn Often I use it to try and be productive, but then it becomes a leisure pursuit #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:11:13 +0000)
@BillWongOT @kirstyes I think both… cuz sometimes u have pressure to respond ASAP. But, sometimes talking to peers can help ease stress. #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:11:19 +0000)
@gilliancrossley @kirstyes Because it make socialising accessible when I am busy and pushed for time. #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:11:20 +0000)
@BillWongOT @kirstyes cuz I remember at least I don’t have pressure to respond to people ASAP in high school, but now is different. #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:11:56 +0000)
@kirstyes ? @AnnabelFenn : Often I use it to try and be productive, but then it becomes a leisure pursuit #occhat ? and takes away from productivity?(Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:12:18 +0000)
@clarewilding @kirstyes @billwongot I find handwriting soothing but online can b stressful – it’s too fast #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:12:26 +0000)
@BillWongOT @kirstyes when I have to vent about school… lol! #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:12:35 +0000)
@BillWongOT RT @gilliancrossley : @kirstyes Because it make socialising accessible when I am busy and pushed for time. #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:12:49 +0000)
@DoAbility @kirstyes can often become a hinderance :0 #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:13:02 +0000)
@allisulli @kirstyes haha. My bad. Cultural sensitivity is dismal at times. The world doesn’t revolve around EST you mean?! Haha #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:13:03 +0000)
@gilliancrossley @BillWongOT @kirstyes I feel that pressure too! thats why I turned notifications off! I respond when I have the time #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:13:05 +0000)
@BillWongOT @gilliancrossley @kirstyes and not to mention multi-tasking. #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:13:13 +0000)
@elaamleung @kirstyes #occhat defo miss writing letters. luv reading them again. brings more memories back than fb! but digi tech more convenient(Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:13:32 +0000)
@kirstyes . @BillWongOT That’s interesting re pressure to respond ASAP. I feel that more with e-mail but less with twitter/fb possibly? #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:13:41 +0000)
@AnnabelFenn Admittedly it can work both to support and detract from my occupational balance. I have to be disciplined with the amount of time #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:14:17 +0000)
@kirstyes . @gilliancrossley On a five minute pomodoro break maybe? #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:14:20 +0000)
@gilliancrossley @clarewilding @kirstyes @billwongot the pressure to type quick is stressful! #alwaysmakingmistakes ! #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:14:20 +0000)
@BillWongOT @clarewilding @kirstyes and this can be one example if you are not used to it. #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:14:24 +0000)
@AnnabelFenn that I spend using digital technology and not disengage from off-line encounters, also essential for balance #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:14:59 +0000)
@DoAbility Interested to see how technology has affected the way you purchase equipment… #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:15:03 +0000)
@kirstyes . @clarewilding @billwongot That’s a nice image, soothing handwriting. Do you feel that way (re too fast) with all digital tech? #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:15:25 +0000)
@allisulli RT @gilliancrossley : @kirstyes I spend a lot of time on it.. but feel it makes occ balance more accessible for me #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:15:32 +0000)
@gilliancrossley @AnnabelFenn yes thats a hard balance to keep.. SocMe can bring on the procrastination! #occhat but sometimes that good for me(Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:15:46 +0000)
@BillWongOT @kirstyes actually, the least pressure I have is if people text me. I rarely check texts at home. #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:15:47 +0000)
@fullyOccupied @kirstyes @billwongot #occhat I agree -definitely less pressure – a kind of ‘collect when you can, respond when you like’ feel about it!(Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:15:53 +0000)
@BillWongOT RT @gilliancrossley : @clarewilding @kirstyes @billwongot the pressure to type quick is stressful! #alwaysmakingmistakes ! #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:16:04 +0000)
@clarewilding @BillWongOT @kirstyes yes, it’s diff to think about wot 2 say, type it, & read others at same time #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:16:12 +0000)
@BillWongOT @gilliancrossley @clarewilding @kirstyes agreed! the flow is different than say email. #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:16:19 +0000)
@gilliancrossley @fullyOccupied yes… it can be a challenge to manage everything… SocMe add extra dimensions to what can already be a full life! #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:16:56 +0000)
@DoAbility We wrote a blog about this a while ago #occhat http://t.co/prZHDerN (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:17:14 +0000)
@allisulli @gilliancrossley @kirstyes #Occhat My time use has changed profoundly bc of SoMe. It is professional and social. Mostly incredibly helpful(Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:17:19 +0000)
@BillWongOT @AnnabelFenn Yes… being in OT taught me that. Social media should be used to build/enhance relationships, but not 100%. #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:17:22 +0000)
@kirstyes . @BillWongOT @gilliancrossley How do people see multi-tasking in relation to occupational balance? #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:17:38 +0000)
@clarewilding @kirstyes @billwongot I think all digital by its nature is fast. That’s actually an advantage in some circumstances #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:17:45 +0000)

@BillWongOT @gilliancrossley @fullyOccupied that’s what we face in this current generation. My parents don’t use SocMed. #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:18:20 +0000)

@kirstyes . @elaamleung You are making me want to write letters now but time is a huge issue isn’t it? #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:18:42 +0000)
@kirstyes . @AnnabelFenn What sort of discipline strategies do you use? #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:19:15 +0000)
@BillWongOT @kirstyes @gilliancrossley well… I think it makes the “keeping up” part worse. More stress to do it. #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:19:31 +0000)

@allisulli @fullyOccupied @kirstyes @billwongot that is why I love it so much! Even though it is often about work, it always feels like play #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:19:51 +0000)
@AnnabelFenn with multi-tasking and socme I ask myself if the quality of engagement is enhanced or inhibited #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:19:56 +0000)
@gilliancrossley @kirstyes @BillWongOT I multitask EVERYTHING the digital age makes this easier! #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:19:59 +0000)

@BillWongOT @elaamleung @kirstyes in certain settings, u have to try to respond within 24 hours, at least with emails. #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:20:35 +0000)

@kirstyes . @clarewilding @billwongot We are hoping for people who find the chats difficult to contribute to the comments on the blog. #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:21:37 +0000)
@BillWongOT @clarewilding I agree. That’s an important aspect that we have to help bridge the gap for some ppl w/ social difficulties. #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:21:39 +0000)
@fullyOccupied @BillWongOT @gilliancrossley #occhat I take your point – a bit- re generational issue, but just as much an issue 4me & I’m no youth!(Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:22:02 +0000)
@Symbolic_Life #occhat I never sit on my computer… But my phone…. Mmm digital misbalanced for sure!(Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:22:28 +0000)

@gilliancrossley @allisulli @kirstyes mine too! I feel more balanced with many aspects of my life by being able to access Socme.. #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:22:40 +0000)
@allisulli @kirstyes @clarewilding @billwongot As a lefty, writing always stressful to me-makes a mess. But #techprobs one of biggest stress #Occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:22:42 +0000)

@clarewilding @kirstyes @fullyoccupied @billwongot that makes sense. Diff analogue time communications have diff conventions #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:22:58 +0000)

@kirstyes . @DoAbility Personally I’m not in a role where I purchase but it’s a lot easier to find out info now about equipment & Compare them #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:23:58 +0000)

@AnnabelFenn @kirstyes @clarewilding @BillWongOT I agree. I’ve read a couple of #occhat before feeling able to contribute, permanency is daunting!(Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:24:29 +0000)
@gilliancrossley @fullyOccupied @BillWongOT think the younger gen have it built into their upbringing now.. A balance of real and virtual is helpful! #occhat (Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:24:37 +0000)
