From Fast Company’s interview with Sherry Turkle about her new book Alone Together:Why we Expect More from Technology and Less From Each Other
This is on my list of things to read in the coming weeks. I tend use the word alienation to make the same points Turkle makes about loneliness. Perhaps it’s time for me to think meaningfully about the difference between the two states of being. My sense is that they are both instances of internal anxieties projected onto the outside world regardless of the presence or lack thereof of other people. No doubt there is subtle differences between the two that I am overlooking.
