Submit Your Story: Your Worst Tech Fails

Tuesday, January 14, 2014 - 03:17 PM

That guy who walked into a lamppost while texting. The woman you saw doing FaceTime with her husband - in the Whole Foods produce section. 

We've all seen people abuse, overuse and get confused by technology, from embarrassing auto-corrects to tweets that missed their mark. Bring us your best (or worst!) story, or confess your own, and we'll tell you how to turn it around when New Tech City hosts a live conversation about balancing the technology in your life on January 23 in The Greene Space.

Write us, or best of all, send us a video about a tech FAIL. Make it 30 seconds or less and your tale could be included in a WNYC video that'll be posted online and shown at the January 23 event. Submission deadline is 11:59pm ET on Monday, Jan. 20.
