How can we be our authentic selves online? Should teens approach social media as if they are their own brand? David & Joe chat with tech lifestyle expert Stephanie Humphrey about digital footprints and the difficulty to living our lives online.
Funny as Tech is a podcast about our messy relationship with technology. Hosted by tech ethicist David Ryan Polgar and comedian Joe Leonardo, the show looks at how emerging technology is altering our life in so many profound ways.
Technology and Lifestyle Expert Stephanie Humphrey is a former engineer who merges her passion for lifestyle media with in-depth tech expertise to show everyday people how empowering, enriching and fun technology can be. Stephanie is driven by the sole purpose of connecting people, particularly those underrepresented in technology, with the tech know-how to transform their worlds.
Stephanie is currently a technology contributor for ABC News where she works as part of the nationally syndicated Strahan Sara & Keke team. Before that, she spent two years as the technology contributor to daytime talk show
The Harry Show, hosted by Harry Connick, Jr. She’s also been a guest expert on the daytime morning show Home & Family on The Hallmark Channel, and Sister Circle Live on TV One. Stephanie was a frequent guest on NewsOne with Roland Martin and has also contributed her tech-life expertise to
other national media outlets including Al-Jazeera America, HuffPostLive, TheGrio.com, and BlackEnterprise.com. She is a regular on-air tech contributor to Fox 29’s Good Day Philadelphia (WTXF) where she delivered tech news since 2012. Stephanie spent three years as the technology writer for EBONY.com, a contributor to EBONY magazine, and was the originator of the popular Tech2Go column on TheRoot.com. She also spent two years as the spokesperson for HP, Inc. on the QVC shopping channel. You can currently catch her monthly radio segment on The Karen Hunter Show on Sirius XM and hear regular tech segments on WDAS-FM in Philadelphia as well. And Stephanie uses social media to help thousands of people understand tech basics with her weekly 60-Second Tech Break on Instagram & Twitter (@TechLifeSteph). Clips of some of Stephanie’s work can be viewed on her YouTube channel.
Helping students is a passion that drives Stephanie, and she has channeled this motivation into a seminar called ‘Til Death Do You Tweet. The seminar, tailored to either students, parents, or professionals, helps them understand the potential negative consequences of online behavior - especially through social media - and gives helpful advice on how people can maintain a positive
reputation in cyberspace. Her book “Don’t Let Your Digital Footprint Kick You in the Butt!” expands on these concepts and is due to launch in August 2020.
