The promise of technology was to democratize the world and bring us all together. Hmm…
I’m thinking it has done more to place people in isolated silos than bring them together. I watch people at the dinner table not be present but rather be online. I’ve been exploring this notion for some time.
This video is exceptionally well done. Shimi Cohen explores the connection between social networks and loneliness. He is referencing the excellent work of Sherry Turkle and also Dr. Yair Amichai-Hamburgers’ article “The Invention of Loneliness.”
This 4 minute video by Shimi Cohen is well worth the time; then, set aside some time to ponder what he has shared.
