Are We Communicating?
Rainy day relaxing after many hours of driving over the last few days... I'm following my intention of reading the Sunday New York Times with no time pressure and few electronic distractions while sipping strong, hot coffee. I so enjoy the tactility of holding a newspaper and after reading my first go-to section of the paper today, the Sunday Review, I can't wait to get a copy of Sherry Turkle's book, "Alone Together: Why We Expect More From Technology and Less From Each Other." I like what she says about the value of face to face conversation unfolding slowly unlike our sound bites in digital text.
