¨Technology's Helping Us Become More Human¨

Check out Amber Case’s TED talk

While ancient and modern tools serve as an extension of our physical selves, today’s technology also allows us to extend our mental selves. This is what Amber Case discusses in a TED talk on her  reasons for becoming a Cyborg Anthropologist.

While she opinions that technology is helping us become closer to one another, she’s concerned about the dwindling amount of time people are spending being close to themselves; time where we turn off our laptops and cell phones and engage in some good old self-reflection.

Journalist Carl Honoré  shares a similar concern. Check out his TED talk below where he discusses our need for speed in a ¨roadrunner society¨.
