It is a reality for many of us today. We definitely live digital lives. Even my 3 year old niece is starting to develop her digital presence. She is a digital native and can navigate her way through anyone’s iphone and find the things that she wants to find – YouTube, photos, videos – you name it.
I was listening to a talk on our Virtual existence, and the person speaking was making the point that our digital experiences disconnect us from ourselves. My initial reaction is that my entire dissertation completely goes against that idea, but I have to consider the many great points that they make. It might disconnect you to yourself, but as long as it’s part of the process of becoming your true self, then I’d be okay with it. I need to chew on it more and develop a well-thought out opinion about it. This post definitely is not that, but I wanted to at least write it down and see what kind of comments it might generate.
Do you think that Being Digital disconnects you from your self? Does it disconnect you from others? Or do the tools bring us together in a new way? What do you think?
