Homework #9

Talk assignment:   Connected, but alone? – Sherry Turkle
Sherry gave a TED talk about a topic that many can relate to. That is the use of technology to communicate. But it’s more specifically using technology to replace traditional methods of connecting like talking or being physically present. She raises the concern about how our society is depending more on digital communication at the cost of us not being able to really have relationships with other people. Relationships have certainly changed over the last twenty something years. I think how and when digital communication is used determines if it’s impact is positive or negative.
