Renowned media scholar Sherry Turkle investigates how a flight from conversation undermines our relationships, creativity, and productivity—and why reclaiming face-to-face conversation can help us regain lost ground. I like what she is saying, which I summarize as: - Digital devices have changed who we are and how we interact - We are hiding behind our devices - Real-time conversation is messy and uncontrollable - That is why we are avoiding it - The ability to edit, delete, undo and redo is shortchanging us - The 'Share therefore I am' scenario is setting us up to be isolated - We need to consciously interact with our devices and each other, and cultivate our capacity for solitude.
