Alive Enough

Technology and socialization are generally believed to have an inverse relationship; however, author Sherry Turkle offers a different take on these two concepts.  Through an interview with Krista Tippett, Turkle says that technology can actually help us live more examined lives and honor those things and ideas we hold dear.

In this interview, Turkle speaks about the difference between being used by and using technology and gives voice to a number of ideas from teaching our children the rewards of solitude to connecting with wisdom.

This interview is fascinating and benefits from her own research as a professor at MIT concerning the subjective side of technology, specifically, how it affects our attention and relationships.
