Sherry Turkle

In this episode we interview MIT professor Sherry Turkle. Sherry is the author of the book “Alone Together: Why We Expect More From Technology and Less From Each other,” a fascinating take on our modern relationship to technology. We question whether or not we are becoming transhumanist cyborgs, and how our obsessions with our gadgets impact our actual real world lives. Wait…. what what did you just say? Sorry I was texting and live-tweeting my email.
