Sherry Turkle: Connected, but alone?

Standard

I have to say, I’ve heard this type of talk before. That technology is encroaching on our lives to the extent we aren’t actually communicating anymore. But I thought that Sherry Turkle some how brought the point home on an intellectual and emotional level better than most. Great talk.

From Ted.com
As we expect more from technology, do we expect less from each other? Sherry Turkle studies how our devices and online personas are redefining human connection and communication — and asks us to think deeply about the new kinds of connection we want to have.

“The feeling that ‘no one is listening to me’ make us want to spend time with machines that seem to care about us.” (Sherry Turkle)
