Sherry Turkle Podcast

I just listened to this podcast from Harvard Business Review featuring Sherry Turkle. It's a great listen.

I particularly enjoyed how Turkle frames the use of social networking and technology less as an addiction that must be simply stopped, and more like a diet that must be monitored and regulated in appropriate moderation.

My favorite line from the whole interview was:
If you don't teach your children to be alone - they'll only know how to be lonely.
If you found this interesting, you might like to know that Sherry Turkle will be in Edmonton in May 2011. More information here.
