Sherry Turkle's work is about people and about technology. As the director of the MIT Initiative on Technology and Self, she asks questions that kids -- and all of us - -need to be asking today. In this podcast, she talks about how in our everyday interactions, we are constantly choosing between letting technology shape us and shaping technology towards purposes that are truly human. From declaring email bankruptcy to teaching our children the rewards of solitude, her ideas are important and practical. Our upcoming work in technology and child emotional and spiritual well-being is going to look at some of these questions, too. What do you think?
