TED blurb re the content:

"As we expect more from technology, do we expect less from each other? Sherry Turkle studies how our devices and online personas are redefining human connection and communication - and asks us to think deeply about the new kinds of connection we want to have.

Sherry Turkle studies how technology is shaping our modern relationships: with others, with ourselves, with it."

That's a slightly scary thought, which may well be true, or does technology mean we expect more in the sense of instant communication, rather than a returned letter 2 weeks later.
