Alive Enough? Reflecting on Our Technology with Sherry Turkle | On Being

Alive Enough? Reflecting on Our Technology with Sherry Turkle | On Being.

Sherry Turkle’s book Alone Together is a wonderful sociological exploration of human relationships with technology, and this interview with Krista Tippet for On Being provides an accessible overview for some key ideas.

–We expect more from our technology than each other. That needs to change.

–We can, and must, live an examined life with technology.

–And while the interview does not precisely say this, the implications (backed by some other studies) suggests that the best online relationships are  ones grounded in f2f relationships.  This seems to be as true for non-profit organizations as it is for personal relationships.
