Sherry Turkle

Sherry TurkleMIT technology and society specialist psychologist Sherry Turkle (Alone Together) has been called the Margaret Mead of Digital Culture and our techno-Freud. In her latest book, Reclaiming Conversation, she discusses the power of conversation and the importance of reclaiming it in the digital age. Turkle argues that social media provides the illusion of companionship without the demands of intimacy, causing us to sacrifice authentic communication for mere connection. With digital technology still in its infancy, however, she says that there is ample time for us to reshape how we build and use it.
