Hey y'all; I was split about which forum to stick this in, but here it is. I was listening to On Being, a radio show on NPR, last week and heard an interview with Sherry Turkle. Here's the summary from their website:
Sherry Turkle directs the MIT Initiative on Technology and Self. Her book, Alone Together, created a catchword for anxiety about the alienating potential of technology. But that's not really her message. We explore the real challenge she poses — that we can and must lead examined lives with our digital objects — actively shaping technology to human purposes.
A lot of the topics covered in the interview resonate with me, not the least because I believe some of these concepts are at work in Treeleaf. The discussion provides a great opportunity for reflection & conversation with friends & family.
I could go on for days about how much I love On Being, but I won't.
