I chose to share this Ted Talk to emphasize on the fact that we are still in the early stages of digital. We are discovering, testing, implementing. Digital makes us feel less lonely and is capable of boosting our egos in a split second. We are never cut off during a conversation and everyone is listening to us (rather being on Facebook or Quora).
Yet, we have never felt so lonely … Meditate
Happy New Year, wishing you a healthier digital life.

Excellent talk. Personally, I thin balance is key. I derive a lot of pleasure from my online communities, but it can never replace day-to-day personal contact.
Thank you for sharing your opinion. It will never replace human interactions 🙂
I certainly agree… but never say never. My daughter read a book recently about a future society were pollution had gotten so bad that people will, essentially trapped in their homes, and led their entire lives in on-line virtual reality.
