This is your Brain on Technology: Chilliwack: Spring 2012

“Are we living life on the screen or life in the screen? Our new technologically enmeshed relationships oblige us to ask to what extent we ourselves have become cyborgs, transgressive mixtures of biology, technology, and code. The traditional distance between people and machines has become harder to maintain.”

Turkle, Sherry. Alone Together: Sociable Robots, Digitized Friends, and the Reinvention of Intimacy and Solitude. Basic Books, 2011. Print.
