Reflections 9

In the book, “Alone Together: Why we Expect More From Technology and Less From Each Other”, Sherry Turkle outlines the pluses and minuses of technology in our society. Ms. Turkle comments on the conveniences of communication that technology provides through a virtual world. She also notes that technology provides companionship and stimulation for people. For example, snuggly robots are brought into homes for the aged. Technology is reshaping our societal world day by day and we must embrace as well as accept its presence within our everyday lives.
