Someday, I'd Like to Learn How to Have a Conversation

Our relationship with technology is a contentious issue in today's world.  Are we more connected or less connected than in the past?

Sherry Turkle is a psychologist who studies how digital technology is shaping our modern relationships and ourselves. This video was presented at an official TED conference and explains the theory of being technologically connected but removed from human interaction. Turkle argues that "We need to make room for solitude in our life and we need to mark the difference between connection (of which we have plenty) and conversation (of which we don't have nearly enough)".
