but i still love technology

Why I relate to Pidge Gunderson

I grew up in a house with three brothers yet was still considered the nerd of the family even though I am a girl. I loved anything related to technology and still do. I was also the youngest. 

A lot of people think I am a boy because when they hear the name Ray (yes spelled like that) they don’t usually think of a girl with that name (which is why I love it lol element of surprise) 

  • I also loved movies like star wars and was really into space stuff when I was young but now I study animation but still this is a character I really connect with 

I usually related to the nerd characters of animated shows but they were all guys so I’m glad I have a sassy nerdy character who can also kick some serious A**. Thank you Dreamworks for this character :) 

technology.tumblr.com 2.0

Hi everyone!

I wanted to start by saying how incredibly sorry I am for taking months to get this blog back together. I moved to LA, my whole life changed, and it’s my most crucial year of high school. Excuses excuses, I know. Thank you so much to everyone who has stuck with me on here, on @okitsolivia​, or on any other platform. I adore you all, and I could not be more grateful for how delightfully supportive you have been. Enough of that - let’s move on to what’s happening now and in the future.

technology.tumblr.com will be updated three times per week! Guaranteed.  I’ll try to stick to a Monday, Wednesday, Friday schedule, but it might be different every once in awhile. I’m a mess, ok? Articles will be a bit broader in topic than ever before. Your faves will still be around (App of the Month, Tech Under $__), but I’m going to test out some new topics over the next few months, including more interviews, content related to digital media and gaming, and investigative style research (Upcoming stories include: Why Video Gamers Deserve Scholarships and Inside Anonymous). I am elated to cover more of the tech world. Let me know what you think of a certain subject. If you love it, I want to write more about it for you. This blog is for us, and I want you to be just as involved as I am.

The other grand change is the addition of a new writer. I KNOW. I KNOW. His name is Austen; he is one of my best friends and an all around wonderful human being. He is enthusiastic about technology, and he provides an entirely new perspective, including his passion for video games and his devotion to Android. Disclaimer: He’s not a social media person. Don’t stalk him online, please. I would appreciate it. He would appreciate it. Just go along with it. I  promise this won’t turn into an Android fan blog; I’m still editing and overseeing everything. 

That’s all I have for now. I’ll see you guys next week (three times)! I hope you are as eager as I am. Ahhhhhhhhh! 



     Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida recently saw an event that caused quite a stir. I hope said event will soon become commonplace. On April 8, 2016, a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launched a Cargo Dragon spacecraft on the CRS-8 resupply mission to the International Space Station. After stage separation, the first stage made a successful powered descent and landing from space. This the second time SpaceX has successfully recovered a booster in this way, but the first landed at sea. To allow for higher fuel margins for the return trip, the Falcon landed at sea on a drone ship called “Of Course I Still Love You”, named in reference to the book “The Player of Games”, in honor of the author Iain M. Banks.

     After landing atop the ship, the entire enterprise was slowly towed back inland where it arrived at Port Canaveral. The arrival was met with quite a fanfare from the general public. In the following days, the Falcon was hoisted from its ship, placed ashore, processed and rotated to the horizontal. Soon, she will undergo ten back to back static fire tests, where the idea of reliable rapid reusability will be further proven to the sometimes skeptical commercial spaceflight community.

     Among all this commotion, a less visible but very symbolic event took place; a sign on a building that read “SpaceX Launch Control” was removed and replaced with a sign that now reads “SpaceX Launch & Landing Control”.
