Some of our generation are feeling that the world changed sometime halfway through our existence, its life diminished, and gadgetry had something to do with it. For example:
… or the film “World’s End.”
Thanks for the article, Richard. I love the line: ‘you’re breaking up’ is the cry of our time. Which “World’s End” are you referring to?
I’m in the middle or Sherry Turkle’s book “Alone Together.” It’s fascinating getting the experience of someone who has studied these interactions for decades and whose views have shifted from enthusiasm to alarm.
I meant this film: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1213663/
Another good book on the perils of the digital is The Shallows, by Nicholas Carr.
Thanks for the recommendations, Richard!
