Is technology killing our hearts? Sherry has been studying the impact of tech and social media (robots! AI! smartphones! facebook!) on THE HUMAN SOUL since she graduated Radcliffe and started working at MIT back in the seventies.
I have always wanted to understand how the internet is changing our hearts. So no big surprise I’ve been a big admirer of MIT professor Sherry Turkle since reading Alone Together (2011) and Reclaiming Conversation (2015). Sherry recently wrote a memoir about her childhood and her journey through the male-dominated world of tech and MIT, and it’s a game-changer. Wherever tech ideas and men dominate, there are so many important questions about empathy…and Sherry has unlocked some of the answers.
