Does Technology Serve Human Purposes?
A conversation between authors Henry Jenkins and Sherry Turkle of MIT demonstrates that there are different viewpoints on how we can better learn to live with technology, and have that technology serve (and not disrupt) us.
The debate between whether technology, digital and social media have played a stronger role in connecting human beings vs. disrupting real interaction (while we’re glued to our screens) is doubtlessly one that will continue to permeate the cultural conversation. Even exhibits like ‘Talk to Me’ at the MoMA in NYC aim to contextualize how technology can act as more of a bridge between human beings, cities and institutions – and less as a disruption.
