My question: Do we really accept what we put online today as a new authenticity? That seems where we are heading. That itself seems a problem. Opinion | "The Matrix Resurrections" and the Dark Timeline Humanity Is on - The New York Times - https://t.co/foVImSylPZ #GoogleAlerts

A discussion at the wonderful Salibury Forum on #theempathydiaries. We touched on the political and personal costs of digital life including this advice for families: "Make the kitchen, the dining room, and the car into sacred spaces without devices." https://t.co/tUS5VMWhjJ

Reading @STurkle’s #EvocativeObjects has me rethinking the role of gear in #coffeefandom. The apparatuses may help their users to think about, explore, and experience their relationship to coffee differently. This is beyond the devices’ intended functions to produce a better cup.

Such a great conversation on the critical importance of building the skill to see things from perspectives other than our own. It's a huge strategic advantage in accomplishing business goals--and in living a full life. @DebEpsteinHenry @STurkle #leadership https://t.co/Ggej9ZqO2r

“[I felt] like I was dead. Like I didn’t matter. I want to feel heard and I’m telling you this again so maybe you can understand the depth and degree and damage they did. I want changes. I deserve changes.” Doesn’t matter if you’re famous. Every woman can relate to Britney.

You already know this about video-calls, but the quote below from sociologist @STurkle nails why they're so stressful (it's why I write about tech, and what it does to human interaction). The article is here if you want it https://t.co/yzQnaEpSiu #zoom #empathy #technology

@jameswallman @NathalieNahai @cindygallop It is absolutely true. We are wired to relate in person. The pandemic saw an enormous rise in mental health issues, exacerbated by isolation. Technology is useful, convenient, in an emergency, a godsend. But nothing can replace embodied relating. @psychoanalysis_ @STurkle
