Perils of Digital Technology

Mike Wittmer listened to MIT Professor Sherry Turkle’s lecture at Calvin College yesterday and summarizes the presentation at http://mikewittmer.wordpress.com/2012/01/04/perils-of-digital-technology/

I was particularly struck by point 9 where Mike summarises, “We’re not in trouble because we invented a new technology, we’re in trouble because we unreflectively threw ourselves into the new technology.”

As much as I love tech and enjoy using it may it never get the better of me especially in developing deep and lasting relationships. No one on his death bed was heard to have wished for another hour with his MacBook.
